The tower is 25 meters high and has cost something close to 24 million kroner to have built. In the first 4 weeks alone, there have been almost 17,000 visitors, and the tower has since the opening received both attention from home and abroad, as journalists from both the Netherlands, Germany and the US have been a smut because to experience the new beautiful landmark.

  1. Too bad

    strange place
    We drove a trip from Funen to Southern Jutland to see and experience the Marsh Tower, have been to the Tower at Næstved and were looking forward to seeing the view of the marsh but we did not get there because you are not allowed to bring your dog. What's that all about? it can not sit in a hot car while we trot up there.
    Too bad to drive down there for nothing

  2. Good experience

    Defied poorly reviewed and visited marsh cafe. Got a good and fast service super nice food all in all a super good experience.

  3. Five big stars

    Fantastic motorhome pitch. Not spared anything, and also very reasonable price and the power is cheap. Not the last time we come.

  4. Bad

    Nowhere to eat takeaway food

  5. Bad service

    We were here this afternoon, September 26, 2021, on an excursion trip with my old parents, so that they could see the tower and have a cup of coffee with cake in the Marsk restaurant. It was a really bad experience, we get to sit at a table. Then a very loud-mouthed female waiter came and told us not to side with that table because it was meant for more than the four of us.
    That would be ok too, but the way it was said was really uncomfortable. Her tone was really high and everyone looked at the "grubs" who had planted themselves incorrectly.
    5 minutes later, 3 men came and sat down at the mentioned table. They were allowed to stay seated but were not serviced all the time was there. We heard they asked if they could just have something to drink. They didn't get that either.
    Conclusion:
    We never come and put our money in the Marsh restaurant, nor do we recommend others to visit it. Bad service.
