This cost around E30 to go up to the top for a family of 4 via lift and then very narrow stairs. The view is awesome.

This is my second time back here, first in 2015, now in 2018. You can take the elevator a ways up then climb the stairs to the bells. Best to do on a Saturday as that is the only day the bells ring. Really cool...More
