I really wanted to visit as I had heard good things about the castle. Unfortunately, the cable car to the top and both walking entrances were closed due to a landslip in the previous months

This is must see/ must go if you're visiting Vilnius! The museum inside is interesting, but if you're short of time, just go up the hill to look at the panorama.

Famous Gediminas tower in the beautiful city of Vilnius has stunning views when you get to the top. It takes a little leg work to get there but is a very enjoyable walk or run to the top. Always full of visitors and tourists, truly amazing that it is still standing in the heart of Vilnius for all to see.... More

The view of Vilnius was beautiful. It's a nice walk up to the tower where you can sit and view the city, people watch, and take fantastic pictures. Absolutely visit Gediminas Tower!

The Tower is closed indefinitely while they try to work out how to stop the hill it's sitting on from collapsing. The furnicular is shut and there is no access to the Tower until further further notice.

I think is one of Vilnius landmarks you must visit and where you can enjoy beautiful views of town. Closed until the middle of February 2017.

So sad that I could not come back to see the place again but could see it from afar anyway. The most beautiful view of Vilnius is from this tower. I'm sure they're doing some improvements but they should announce when it's gonna be open to public again.
