Attraction details
Owner description: This renovated 118-foot tower was built in 1384 and moved to its present site in the city center in 1582.
Reviewed 5 May 2008

The Bell Tower is situated on a roundabout at the intersection of four busy streets, surrounded by shopping centres and the like so we nearly gave it a miss.

I'm glad we didn't so dive through the subway, pay your entrance fee and climb the steps of the tower. Not only do you get great views of the city, but five times a day costumed musicians put on a show featuring ... you've guessed it .... bell ringing.

There is also a display of local art, you can enjoy the old building and, if you must, ring the ten tonne bell.

Enjoy, we did!
