Great views of a beautiful old town
Aug 2020
225 steps to the top but well worth it for the great views, even on a rainy day. You pay at the top, card or cash.

We spent 2 nights in the town. It's one of those places you've never heard of but are glad you find it when you do. The old town around the huge central square is lovely to wander around, along with the walks by the river and in the parks. Well worth a stopover.

Views on a whole city worth climbing this tower! It may appear tiring at first glance but believe me when you get there, you wouldn't regret! Price is 40 czk for an adult and you pay on the top. You can also borrow binoculars for 10 czk and buy nice postcards!

Fabulous City!
May 2019
My husband and I went for one night --- we were on our way to Prague from Saltzburg and took the LOCAL train by mistake! But- oh- what a great little town we stopped in for the night. A Budweiser Beer Festival was happening the next day- lucky to see that as well!

great view
Aug 2019
The best sight if you want to see the city centre. The walk up the 225 stairs is definitely worth it. However there is a net on the lookout gallery because in the past few people jumped and killed themselves. Try to go there when the bell is about to ring. It is an amazing vibration and experience to be inside the tower when the bells are ringing.

FOR VIEWS OF THE TOWN - AND SOME EXERCISE
Jul 2019
It is quite a climb to the top, first on a spiral staircase and then on a series of steeply inclined step ladders. The good news is that you only pay the small admission charge if you make it to the top. The views over the old town are worth the climb.

225 steps

I visited a lot of towers all around the Czech Republic and sometimes it was really difficult to climb up the narrow and steep steps. Climb up stairs to Black Tower it was a piece of cake. They were not mostly narrow and nowhere were low ceilings.They sell tickets on the top of the tower (30,- CZK per adult). They offer there very nice postcards of ČB and other beautiful places from nearby area.

225 steps up
Jul 2019 • Friends
The way up is quite easy even though you have to look out for other people and low ceilings. The view you'd get when you climb is worth of every 225 steps you've just walked

Landmark of the city
Jun 2019
We have been to Ceske Budejovice many times, but we never leave without climbing up to the tower at least once. This time an 11-year-old grandson raced all the way up and then waved to us from the top, he said he enjoyed the climb up and the view.
