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

Well, there is not much to say! The view from the tower is just fantastic and I would recommend going there to everyone! Even me who is not fit managed to climb upstairs and the view was a great reward for the effort. Torun is a beautiful city and the top of Town Hall offers a great panorama!

We did not scale the popular tower but did visit the amazing museum located off the courtyard. Some reviewers have dismissed it as simply an art gallery which it is on the first floor. However, the main floor has a first rate display of artifacts from Torun’s history, especially the guilds. The second floor at first blush appears to be... More

Stunning site in the Rynek from the outside. An interesting museum of Torun's history on the inside. If you like history, it's worth an hour or so, and the few zlotys admission. If not, browse through quickly on a day that admission is free.

The Town Hall is situated in the center of the Old Town. It is pretty nice place, inside there is a museum. Some days in the week the tower is open for night visits. The city is clearly seen from the top. I really advise you to go up the tower - the city is worth seeing. There is an... More

Many steep narrow stairs to go up the tower but the reward is breathtaking views of the pretty city and its great architecture.
