The Dunkirk belfry was build in 1440 and is classified as World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Climb to the top and enjoy a panoramic view of Dunkirk and its surroundings.

It was built as the bell tower for the Saint-Eloi church until a frightening fire separated the two buildings in 1558. It was renovated in 2009, and on the 5th floor, you’ll find 50 bells. The bells bring the town to life every 15 minutes with popular melodies.
You can take an elevator to the bells. However, if you wish to enjoy the viewing platform, 58 meters (190 feet) high, you’ll have to climb up sixty steps.
