“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Nice to see tower in the middle of the town, the whole street it's on has a nice feel to it, being closed for cars really helps.

“Well, worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2013

It's just off the main square in Sibiu, so while you're there, pay the 2 lei (only 0.5 euro!) take a leisurely climb up the winding stairs of this tower. Stop and enjoy some of the photo exhibitions. There are no captions at all, so you can simply observe and not overthink, and when you get to the top the view is nice.

“Stair-ey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

Well it was indeed as advertised... For 2 lei the view from the top is worth it and it is enclosed at the top which is better if you have a fear of heights. There is quite an interesting photo exhibition in there too

“This historic tower is a great way to start the tour of the town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

Sibiu has a magical charm to it and you can just feel being engulfed in history when you walk around. However, you can't appreciate the immense beauty of the place until you've had the overview. This tower is not easy to climb, especially for those who are really tall and big, but once you get to the top, the view is amazing from every side. Great place to take pictures. In April when we were there, it wasn't very touristy and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

“Very worth the climb!”

Great view of the small square from the top and a helpful woman in the kiosk who gave us a good recommendation for Crama Sibiana.
