Valberg Tower is the old watchtower and watchmens' museum at the top of the hill behind the colourful waterfront sea houses(see photo on navigation bar above!). There is a lovely view over the water. In 1853 the tower was the the highest point in the town and used to warn of fires. Beside the tower is a small playground and a lovely cafe.
