Bezoekerscentrum St. Martinustoren
The Martinustoren is a remnant of the Saint Martin's Church, which was destroyed in 1945. The tower was built in 1869 and today it functions as a visitor center. In the tower you can get more information about the cultural history and nature of Gennep and the land of Maas and Niers. You can also climb the tower to enjoy the view from the top floor over Gennep, Maasheggen, St. Jansberg and Reichswald. When World War II was nearing its end, many towers along the Meuse were destroyed by the fighting that took place there. The Martinustoren is the only tower located directly on the Maas, between Mook and Roermond, that survived the fighting. On the second floor of the tower you can watch films about the battle that took place in this region from September 1944 to March 1945. From the top floor you can look out over the places where fighting took place during the operations Market Garden and Veritable.
