This impressive tower with its thick walls is an extraordinary location for your getaway. A special feature is the circular living room. The Maria or Gunpowder tower which dates from 1508, has a unique history as it not only functioned as a defence tower, but also as a storage for gunpowder, icehouse and even as a workshop of a calligrapher. The tower is located on an old rampart, with its backside still standing in the old city canal. The shooting holes are visible in the thick walls which are left untouched. The walls are lit by modern torch lights.
