It costs 5 Ron to climb up to the tower's peak. From the top you can see whole Sibiu's center and more. It is worth the effort to climb it up and the price.

The church itself presents a nice gothic architecture and has went through several expansion phases during the centuries. The furniture inside is not original. It has been refurbished in the 19th century. For me, however, the main attraction is the tower of the church which is accessible via two stairs. Caution: not recommended for people with a fear of heights!... More

Great mysterious architecture and very good organ concerts. The inner mechanic of the tower are impressive and as you get on top, you're rewarded with a splendid panoramic view.

This church impressed me more than famous cathedrals i've seen in Europe. Partly because I didn't have expectation but more for its beauty, size, view from the tower, and its "creepy", "ghostly", medieval air. Impressive details carved in stone.

Very beautiful architecture and a great view of the city from the tower you can climb into. The climb gives you chills down your spine, as you go up some stairs and there is only void around you :)

Excellent view of the city and the different epokes of architecture. Interesting to see the inner mechanics of the tower, but if you dont like heights or small rooms the stairs are not for you...

Very relevant for the history and religion of medieval Sibiu. The visit takes about 1 hours, including the tower, so if you have time, do not miss it while in Sibiu !
