The clock is very nice, especially with the figurines on top. The view from the upper part of the clock is amazing and I highly recommend to climb upstairs, despite rather difficult access.

Although you can't take photos inside without paying a fee, I took many photos from the top of the tower which affords amazing views of Sighisoara. There are also markers around the tower showing distances from the tower to all sorts of other places (New York, Paris, Tokyo, etc...)

I loved the view and the entire place. On the way to the balcony we saw the clock mechanism which was pretty interesting.

Small, spiral staircase so it will be a climb - but it's so worth it when you get to the top. Great view of the city - amazing pictures of the colorful rooftops. The museum along the way is very interesting and it's a must see while you are in Sighisoara.

Located in old town square,the clock tower is a must see when visiting sighisoara. The museum which divided into different themes on the way up yo the tower is quits nice,you get quite a lot of information about the city. At the top, the view is beautiful and makes for great pictures.

Wonderful views from the top. There is an English guide you can buy but you can figure things out without it. Check it out - it's worth it.

A really lovely old building overlooking the town, filled with various items of interest, and of course a view of the 'heart' of the clock itself. The very best part in my opinion is the view from the top. With the wonderful weather we had on the day we visited, it really was an enjoyable experience.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014

took me a while to notice that the 3rd line of every sign is in English, its not differentiated in any way such as color or font. The climb up the stairs to the top is interspersed with museum-like rooms but don't include anything significant. old artifacts such as boots, books, medical supplies. The explanations are limited to a title.... More

Not an easy task for over 65, 75 old couple one with a pacemaker But slowly It was completed. Stairs have to be handled with care.Plenty of museum pieces to read about and admire. Amazing
