It's a well known meeting point; they call it "La Turn". It is situated between Piata Mica and Piata Mare, the two squares. Beside the view you could eat at the restaurant with the same name and listen piano music.

Perfect view to the whole city, great attraction for taking pictures and having an overview of Sibiu, and specially of the two main squares (Piata Mare and Piata Mica) near each other.

The tower only cost 2 lei to climb and housed an art exhibition while we were there. From the top you can see all around the city, it really is beautiful.

It seems like a small tower and a bit difficult to get to the top, but once you get there you'll see a unique view over the city. And the entrace fee is a bargain, only 2 lei.

Very old and interesting location in the core of the town - suggestive witness of the long and complex history of the Sibiu town.

Though it's not so big tower and I felt a little scared because the wooden floor is really old, you can see nice view from the top of the tower. And the woman at the reception was friendly.
