interesting attraction, offers a great view over Sibiu and the entrance fee is really cheap - 3 Ron. lots of stairs to climb as the name of the attraction says but totally worth it.

Lovely piece of history of medieval Sibiu. Provides good view of the city. Do give your self ample time to stroll around Piata mare, mica and huet to cover all aspects of this medieval past.

Considered the oldest existing building in the city, it is only the first gate tower of fortifications preserved and dates back to the turn of the century XII or XIII.

I stayed at the Vicenza Square Hotel, so obviously I walked those stairs up and down several times to get to and from Piata Huet and the old city.

the view is great, over the city from the 4 towers side, you have to pay extra but it's something like 3 lei and worth going up!

The clock inside the tower, one of the oldest clocks in Romania, dating back to the 15th century, is an absolute masterpiece. You can look at its mechanisms through the glass surrounding it. At the last floor, you can admire the city.

Probably the oldest building in the city, it was also part of the old defending walls, very interesting to see. Just amazing to watch and think it is so old.
