“Wonderful communist era relic - don't visit on a windy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Wonderful road up the hill. Incredible views from the tower. Unfortunately we visited on a windy and rainy day so only stayed outside for a few mins. Highly recommended visit.

“The best TV Tower in Hungary with one of the most scenic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

It was a symbol of the 70ies. Opened in 1973 and was and still is the non-official symbol of Pécs. Easy to reach by car, 10 minutes from the city center. Free parking next to the tower. The entry ticket price is correct (a bit more then 3 euros / adult) You have only one option to go up, with the old elevator and with its responsible "driver". You cannot use the elevator alone.... Up to the tower you have one of the most scenic and beautiful panorama of Hungary. To the north you see the Mecsek hills, "Tubes", "Zengő" as the top of the hills. In the south you see the town, the Villany-hills are behind, and also Croatia a bit far away. Take a telescope with you to catch the buildings of the inner town. Really wonderful!!!There is a restaurant at the top, with nice choice of ice-creams. For 3 euros you have a nice cup, "Pinocchio cup" for children for 4 euros. Try the famous Hungarian dessert the " gesztenyepüré" which is a very nice kind of marron dessert. For 650 HUF/2013 price cca.2.5 euros. Worth it. Segafredo caffe.

“Amazing view and try the "rangers" soup in the cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

It is one of those post communist era infrastructures, solid, big but no deluxe. Even so the view is amazing. I had a car so access was not a problem, the drive from town takes you through a forrest with paths and picnic spots. Several degrees cooler than the town. Also unusually for tourist places like this. The cafe in the tower is good. I had a traditional Hungarian soup: rangers soup, sort of meaty with mushroom and cream. I would recommend. Also natural lemonade. Not many tourists and its a weekend at the end of June. Only Hungarians, Pec's is certainly an area to discover. Around three hours drive south of Budapest. One difficulty is that not much English is spoken and signs tend to be only in Hungarian, so I would recommend a good navigation app for your phone.

“Worth the trek...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

If you have a car its a bonus, if you can cycle its great for your health, if you walk it take plenty of water with you as it is not for the faint hearted with being on top of Pecs.It is a TV tower that also has a cafe attached to it with great views over Pecs. It is worth stopping on the way up too to take great photos. My advice is not to go up there in the evening alone though as it can get a bit scary and also one can get lost.

“Pécs TV tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

It was okay - note to traveller about theft was a turn off. We didn't go up the tower but did drive up to it, looked at the view and went back down
