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!

a 14th century brick building which towers over the city and which shows yet another form of church decoration. A wonderful space of worship.

This is just off the main market square, interesting architecture and there is a monument to Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was executed by the Nazis in 1945. Sometimes there are concerts and music presentations in the church.

The most interesting thing about St.Elizabeth is the tower. The tower is 300+ steps up to a fantastic view of Wroclaw. The cost is 5PLN and the hours are 10-6. Go on a clear day, it is worth the climb!

I have visited the homeland twice once in 2000 and then in 2012. I looked forward to making the 326 step climb to enjoy a breath taking view of Rynek and the Wroclaw skyline. The history of this church and surrounding churches I found to be very informative. Loved going down and greeted by a gnome across the plaza. A... More
