Fakten

  • The weight of the tower is 8,500 tons.
  • The foundations feature a concrete plate of 1.5 m thickness, placed on 231 pillars each of which is 19.5 m in length.
  • The tower is constructed to resist to a wind pressure of up to 150 kg/m².
  • For the construction of the foundations, 850 m³ of concrete and 80 tons of steel were required.
  • Today this building is perceived as a symbol of Flemish nationalism, a symbol of Flemish oppression, but first and foremost it is seen as a symbol of peace.
  • The construction of this building required 388 tons steel, 3000 m³ concrete, 1150 tons of cement, 325 000 regular bricks and 350 000 façade stones.
  • The height of the letters in the cross are 2.5 m.
  • This building was constructed after Oude IJzertoren was destroyed by terrorists; the current tower is not built on the same spot.
  • There are exactly 462 steps to the top of the building.
  • The name 'IJzertoren' (Yser Tower) refers to the river that runs through the city and which played an important strategic role during the First World War.
  • The top of the building is in the shape of a cross. In the cross are the letters AVV placed vertically whilst the letters VVK are sited horizontally. The abbreviation AVV and VVK stands for "Allen voor Vlaanderen, Vlaanderen voor Christus" meaning "All for Flanders, Flanders for Christ".
