“Give it a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

If you are in the big square, it takes less than $1 to climb it and only few minutes. You can stop at every level so you don't need to be worried. Only the first few steps are narrow so way not try a bird's eye view?

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nice to see tower in the middle of the town, the whole street it's on has a nice feel to it, being closed for cars really helps.

“Well, worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

It's just off the main square in Sibiu, so while you're there, pay the 2 lei (only 0.5 euro!) take a leisurely climb up the winding stairs of this tower. Stop and enjoy some of the photo exhibitions. There are no captions at all, so you can simply observe and not overthink, and when you get to the top the view is nice.
