If you are into taking photos or just want to see a great panorama of Sibiu, you must climb the 400 stairs of the tower. You won't regret it!

Great view, good climb, and interesting history of the city. Very cheap to get in and the 400 year old clock inside is amazing!

A lot of stairs lead the way up to a great birds eye view of the lovely Sibiu, I was here for sunset and took some nice photos, I wanted to head back here again during the day, but didn't get the chance. Great value, and there were some interesting artwork on display when I visited also. A must do... More

This is THE place for every photographer as you can take some nice shots of the old and new city and also the hills around it. It's a long climb until you reach the top, but a bit of exercise doesn't hurt anyone.

Wonderful views will open before you the higher you reach. You have to climb up the stairs to this one, as the roofs of Sibiu town houses make for a truly splendind picture. The stairs are steep and there are some parts of the staircase that are really narrow, but otherwise it's just great. Entrance fee is also just symbolic.

I loved it! Once you get to the top the views are awesome. The stairs were quite something. Those not in shape, or with bad knees, might not like them.

Great views but needs to make itself more obvious as nearly walked past. Stairs bit steep but worth it for the views.
