You can climb up the inside but we didn't. The tower itself is stunning, beautiful architecture and very imposing as the gateway to and from Charles Bridge.

The climb was not too bad, although the stairs leading to the first floor (where the ticket office is) can be very steep. At the ticket office, most part of the floor was cordoned up, and the story board for the powder tower was put...More

This monument towering over Old Town is a striking example of incredible medieval architecture on display. We didn't go inside, but it is easy to appreciate the intricate detail from the street outside. It is well worth a photo or two.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

No it's on the first level, up a spiral staircase and quite tight for space. Hope this helps.

Tickets are easily bought at the base of the tower. No worries. Only go up if you have a clear day with great visibility.
