Full description
Climb The Hague Tower with your knowledgeable guide who will explain to you the history of this landmark. Revolutions, restorations, wars, the French Occupation, and lightning strikes, The Hague Tower survived it all. With 600 years of history, the Hague Tower is one of the oldest buildings in the city and a landmark for travelers and locals. Christiaan Huygens, Vincent Van Gogh, and even Napoleon climbed this unique tower. It was built in a hexagonal shape to protect it from the sea wind. Climbing the Hague Tower is possible for almost everybody as there are several floors on the way up on which you can rest for a moment. Once you're at the top, you will be able to enjoy panoramic views from the beautiful skyline, Rotterdam, and the sea. After the tour, enjoy a complimentary bottle of water (sparkling or still) that will be waiting for you downstairs. A handout with the English translation of this tour is also available at the ticket center upon request.

Het was geweldig ! Helaas was de gids niet zo goed te verstaan. Het was een oudere man die binnensmonds praatte en ook iets te zacht. Ik heb hem een paar keer gevraagd om iets opnieuw te zeggen maar ben uiteindelijk maar wat dichterbij gekomen. Hij wist heel veel te vertellen !

Sehr interessant und informativ gestaltete Führung. Talentierter, mehrsprachiger und menschenoffener Guide. Teilnahme auch mit einem geringen Fitnesslevel ohne Probleme möglich. Nachdem schmaler und steiler Wege beschritten sind , eröffnet sich ein toller Rundumblick über Den Haag und darüberhinaus.

Leuke leerzame en gezellige uitleg door de gids Mooi uitzicht en Interessante toren ook met al zijn geschiedenis Een aanrader op zich We zouden iedereen er enthousiast voor willen maken Door behoud van de toren en de mondelinge begeleiding erbij het geld goed besteed Top
