The cathedral bell tower has In the bell tower a fire watch was organized until 1933. There was a little apartment at the top of the tower. The ECOC has in 2012, together with the Maribor Regional Museum, set up a museum collection ''The Guardroom on the tower'', which is easily accessible by climbing 162 steps. At the top of the tower is also an outdoor viewing platform, from where the old town and surroundings can be seen.
