The 350 steps up that tower, are well worth to climb to see the view!

The stairs are not as easy to navigate, since some of them are very old and some very narrow. Still if you take your time and climb up there as I did, an old gray hair senior... read more

The stairs are not as easy to navigate, since some of them are very old and some very narrow. Still if you take your time and climb up there as I did, an old gray hair senior citizen with acrophobia. I loved the view and stood against the wall while taking lots of pictures. It was also fun to talk... More

The climb to the top of the bell tower was enjoyed by the children but not by me as the wooden staircase worried me! The view from the tower when we reached the top was great and worth conquering the nerves for. The man we paid for entry was interesting and obviously enthusiastic about his town.

Saint George Church is in the heart of the Old Town and from its tower you can have a beautiful 360°view of the city and the colorful cultivated fields, mainly the yellow canola flowers ones! Be sure to go there, and if you're lucky enough will find a cute and famous cat who loves to look the view of the... More

The walk up the bell tower is the highlight of this cathedral. It is steep, winding, and at times a little rickety (although not scary), and allows one to go outside at certain points to see an incredible view of the walled city. At the top is a bell keeper with a resident cat who sells postcards and souvenirs, as... More

I've been in many churches and this is one of the most unusual for details. All along the walls of the Nave are choir stalls and another row of choir stalls are within this semi-circle. Each of the stalls has carvings at the end of the armrests. These carvings are amazing. I think I took at least 30 photos and... More

This church is built from suevite a material left by a meteor millions of years ago. It is light and lofty with a fine altar painting of christ crucified. The tower is closed for renovation which is a shame as evidently the views are superb

St. George's Dom is an exceptional gothic design and merits spending time to examine its many outstanding features. The vaulting, main pulpit, and pillars are remarkably well executed. The organ gallery in the middle of the church will remind you of florentine paper in its exquisite paintings, colors, and style. The organ itself it beautiful. Many family and personal crests...

After reading TripAdvisor reviews on this church tower, the one in Rothenburg and the one in Dinkelsbuhl we decided to save our euros, energy and height anxiety for this tower.....and it was the right choice! It now costs 3€ pp (which you strangely pay near the top only to climb the last 16 steps and be on the observation deck).... More

Construction nets does not show you the beauty of the building but when you go inside it is nice and cool. Old men are hired to get up the tower, call out from 10pm, which entertains the tourists who call out back.

The climb to the top is worth it! It gives a great perspective of the town and how the wall really would have separated the city from intruders. The interior of the church is huge, but not particularly ornate. Still, the whole site is worth the visit!
