“Great starting point for your tour of Sibiu”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

This is a great starting point for your tour of Sibiu. We were charged on 2Lei pp for the visit. You ascend a spiral staircase and there are a few levels where you can stop, witness the changing views as you climb higher, see paintings & photographs. The top level offers fantastic views of the immediate plazas & beyond to see the whole city & mountains beyond. This is certainly worth your time & money. It got very busy whilst we were there, so don't rush.

“Amazing views of Sibiu and a great starting point.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

The Council Tower may not look very impressive from the outside but the views from the top are amazing. You can see all of Sibiu and its landmarks from the top and it is the best starting point to a visit of the city as you get your bearings from the top.

There are explanations of the main landmarks you can see from the top so it is like a mini tour guide. The small photo exhibition on the steps up to the top is very nice and you can also see the clock from inside. A highly recommended attraction.

“Cheapest guide and wonderful panorama”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile


TIP :
Start you visit with this tower it's the cheapest guide, it explains the main attractions.
Nice walk along the stairs, there's no elevator but the number of stairs is decent, plus once every 20 steps there's a picture gallery of either drawings, paintings, sketches photographs of Sibiu.
Also we find a Swiss 1474 clock the second of it's tower kind in Romania.
You have the written history on the seventh flour of the Tower, from where it draws it's name and the explained photographs of what you see in the top flour panorama.
Very cheap entrance fee, you pay on your way out. Just 2 lei, about 0.40 euro cents.
Worth every coin!

“A symbol of Sibiu”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

It's a well known meeting point; they call it "La Turn". It is situated between Piata Mica and Piata Mare, the two squares. Beside the view you could eat at the restaurant with the same name and listen piano music.
