Some might say that the staircase is tight and scary, but I'd say it is truly romantic! Having climbed the narrow and steep stairs you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of the city at your footsteps. It is true, that you get a similar view from the castle, but this is more intimate, and in the very heart of the... More

the view from the top is great and the architecture of the Minaret is worth a look, but the journey up is not so pleasant. you have to wait a lot because they allow only 4 at the time. there is almost 100 really steep high stairs and the space is really tight, you feel cramped up between the walls...

It offers a nice view on the town however you might rather consider visiting the castle where from you can enjoy the same panoramic view.It is a bit boring as well but the ticket is cheap.

97 steps in a very narrow tube. climbing up steps by steps and in the end you "have" to step out to a totally thin outside balcon which is just 3-4 meters around the Minaret cap. Everything is beneath you

We just had to get up there with my family! It was a challenge for sure, as it is a very narrow and never ending spiral staircase,but was worth it. Great view with the feeling of completion.:)

This is well worth the climb to the top if you want a good view of the town. (See pics). Beware, not for those scared of heights. The walkway around the top is only wide enough for you to walk around sideways with your back to wall. (Unless your very skinny or a child). Also, the spiral staircase is extremely... More

It's more of a fun thing to have seen and climbed, than real content. Very narrow and steep stairs, getting even narrower towards the top. 97 steps takes you 26m up, just when real claustrophobia starts to set in, you find yourself on a ledge, only wide enough to turn around while hugging the wall and saying a prayer.

About 100 steps and fee of 300 HUF to climb. It's just to say you did it because the view is better from the castle.

My heart started racing toward the top of the climb as the minaret narrowed but then I felt the fresh air and stepped out to see a beautiful view of Eger and the surrounding areas. Only 300HUF and lots of smaller kids and families were going up and down as well.
