    Carillons  

    To emphasize the opening in the whole city, the carillons of Royal Palace Amsterdam, the Zuidertoren (no participant 2019 because of the renovation of the tower) and the Oudekerkstoren,  will be playing at 10:00.

    Activities

    During the Open Tower Day there are many activities in and around the towers for the visitors. Including art tours, music, tower tours and a photo and film competition with fun, Amsterdam prizes.

    In keeping with tradition, the Open Tower Day 2019 will be brought to a close with music played by carillonneur Gideon Bodden from the Oudekerkstoren at 16.00.
