The most important in Sighisoara

A place full of history, the Clock Tower offers you an amazing view from the top. The program is a little bit to short (closed at 16.00 but maybe out of the season).

I don't always pay to go up for views from the top of buildings. But the fee isn't steep, the exhibits in the building are not bad, but the view from the top is outstanding! Sighisoara is beautiful, and there is no better place to get your photos!

The Clock Tower is gorgeous. From the top you have a very close look at the mechanisms of the clock and the figurines and the view outside is outstanding.

A small fee lets you into this amazing building with creaking floor boards, interesting historic artifacts on every floor, and an amazing 360 degree view of the town, walls and towers from the top. You even get to see the mechanism behind the clock.

Just like all the other places in this town the Clock Tower is filled with history. Make sure you visit it when you are well rested, climbing the stairs will wear you our. It is well worth the visit!!!

This is the main centre piece in the main square, and is a lovely clock made by the makers of Prague's similar attraction. Well worth going up the tower for the views and to get a look at the ancient workings of the clock.

The clock tower provides one with a fantastic view of Sighisoara and it's surrounds. Lots of displays of old memorabilia, to see as one climbs the stairs. Once at the top you have a very close look at the mechanisms of the clock and the figurines etc

The clock tower is more like a museum which reveals the history of the citadele and how it was organised in the past. The mechanism of the clock is impressive and the view from up top was delightful.
