Best views from the top of the Town Hll Tower

Worth while visit to climb to the very top of the tower as the views are magnificent. There is also an art gallery attached and we even saw a free art exhibition in the courtyard.

Actually you can visit the town hall itself (there's a museum inside) but we only climbed the town hall. It's the best place to have a panoramic view of the old town of Torun. You should not be dissapointed. It costs PLN 11 to get to the tower or to the town hall. A combined ticket is PLN 17.

We enjoyed visiting the museum. My kids loved the old key collection and some of the statues and old chests. The art collection was very interesting as well. Then we went up to the top of the tower. The stairs are steep and my kids had a bit of a hard time climbing them, but they made it. Beautiful view... More

If you want to get a great view of Torun, check out the tower in the town hall. There is also reading material on various floors on your way to the top of the tower. Its helpful in making the ascent less tedious.

Located in the centre of the Old City Market Square in Torun, Old City Town Hall was built under the privilege of the Teutonic Grand Master Conrad von Wallenrode in the late 14th century. The building once housed merchant halls on the ground floor and municipal offices on the second floor. The ground floor was also home to the City... More

There's not exactly an endless amount of activities to do in torun but this place is a good way to spend a few hours. The layout of the different exhibitions can be confusing but there are several areas over several floors ranging from stained glass to gingerbread tins. It varies from one exhibition to another whether there is english translations... More

The beautiful red brick built Old City Town Hall is located in the centre of the Old City Market Square. The astonishing building is an evidence of Torun's glory as the former trade empire of Hansa. It was built the Teutonic Order in the late 14th century and the magnificent tower is the oldest part of the present-day building. The... More

Neither the Nazis or the Russians could destroy the spirit of this river city. Fabulous views over the town from here and plenty of places nearby for snacks or beers. They also have some great festivals too. Loads of gorgeous Polish girls around as well which is always a pleasure to see!

Apparently this is the only historic town that was not damaged during the second world war. Its ramparts are largely intact and spectacular and inside are many old buildings and streets. Much of the old town is pedestrianised, so a stroll around was a pleasure.

For a few Zlotys you can visit this museum and choose pay a little more (17pln total) and get a ticket combining the museum and the tower from where you can see amazing views of the town and river. The museum itself is very interesting and you can see historic stages of Torun (even modern ones). You will also find... More
