Its only a small viewing platform but you get a great view over the old town and a nice view of the square. There's not much else to it but it is nice to be up and out of the crowds for a while. The entry price is tiny and its well worth the trip up if you can make it. There's no lift so no good if you can't do stairs.

The tower adjacent to St. Anne's Church is just 150 steps to the top, but offers fabulous views of the Old Town, Castle Square, Krakowskie Przedmiescie, and 360-degree views of the city. Only 10 PLN (less if a student of senior). Views are incredible on clear, sunny days.

Definitely worth climbing these stairs, not only for the great views of Old Town, but also for the amazing panoramic view of most of the city. From here, you can see the national stadium, Palace of culture and the skyscrapers. For a really small fee too!

It definitely gives you a nice view of the old town. The climb isn't too bad but it is a tight turn and low ceiling so be careful if you are going back down quickly so you don't hit your head or get a little dizzy. The view up top shows you a lot of the city.

Beautiful views of Warsaw. Not too high but well worth it. Narrow enough steps. Good value for money, cash only. Nice little gift shop at the bottom

I recommend you do this at sunset. Spend the small amount of cash and climb to the top.
After what seems like an ertenity you get up to the top and climb out on to the tower deck.You can see for miles and its a lovely way to take in Old Town from a different perspective and or simply catch your breath and enjoy the view.

Roof terrace, not very high, however, offers a unique view on the Castle Square and the Old Town of Warsaw.

In summer it is open until 21:00! To visit if you have time! @gargio76

Had a wonderful time in Warsaw with sites and food. BIG WARNING TO ANYONE TAKING A TAXI. You must make sure you use a company taxi and not a private taxi which is known as the POLISH MAFIA. They charge 2 to 3x the actual cost. We learned a lesson too late. When getting in, ask “private or company “. Good luck.

Worth the trek up 150+ stairs to this observation terrace, with a great view over the old town square and the Vistula river. Wasn't crowded when we went up on a Saturday afternoon, and the view was fantastic. Some low ceilings in the stairway, so play attention when climbing up and down.

For only about 6 zloty we got up to the top of the observation terrace and got stunning panoramic views of the city. Entirely worth it - steps are stone and not scary at all. A must do if you're in the city!
