    Yukarıda, gökyüzü açıksa özellikle gün batımına doğru güzel kareler yakalayabilirsiniz ama yine de hiçbiri şehrin içinde, köprülerinde çektikleriniz kadar iyi olmayacak...

    Good views. Optional elevator. If you're fading, you can ring the big bell with the hammer lever.

    A must go if you're visiting the city. Great view!

    Try to be early on the tower. On top it's very small, so you have to wait when it's crowded.

    The façade is adorned with the ‘Mammelokker’ which depicts the legend of Cimon who was condemned to starve to death. He was saved by his daughter who fed him daily from her breast.
