The church is a beautiful example of Gothic architecture and both the interior and exterior are worth visiting. The site is particularly poignant because of its long history and dark period during World War II. Just in front of the church is a memorial to Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Breslau-born German who openly spoke out against Naziism and was hanged... More

The church itself is my favourite in Wroclaw, just beautiful. The 320 steps to the top hurt and coming down was a bit much if you don't like heights. But the view, just spectacular for 5 zloty!

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Wrocław. The interior of the church was pretty, and the exterior has the little gnomes nearby, but it's the tower climb at the external side entrance that is worth it. It is a long climb up though, on a steep spiral staircase (over 80 metres if I remember correctly) and on my... More

I love this kind of attractions- couple minutes of climbing, with a great reward. But I lowered rating by one, because the last section is not so... historic. Just simple, modern staircase.

The main attraction is to climb up to the top of the tower, and see the city underneath. However the steps are spiral, so not recommended for children, or those who get dizzy easily.

church bell offers probably the most spectacualar views to the square rynek, old part of Wroclaw and also suburbs. Climbing the steps is a tough job, but definetly worth the effort. One of the best towers in Europe to climb...

This church is just off the main market square (Rynek). You can climb the tower from a separate entrance on the south side of the building (there is a small charge). The spiral staircase is rather narrow and steep, and it's the same route going up and down, but well worth the effort as the view over the market square... More

Firstly the church is very artistic and well kept. They are currenly painting part of it with great care. Secondly the tower is very high and you an climb to the top if you are fit. Please do not climb in shoes that will slip. Walking shoes would be ideal.

The incredible views of the city from the top of the tower made going up the 300+ steps well worth it!
