Very steep stairs, be careful, but it worth the climb. It is the Sibiu's equivalent of CN Tower, you'll get the view of all city!

Up there you feel on top of the city. The best view over Sibiu. Its a very good start for seing Sibiu from above, and then go down by foot, just wondering around the city.

The best place for panoramic view in Sibiu. Don't miss it if you visit Sibiu. It worth the effort to climb the stairs.

I enjoyed a lot the atmosphere in Piata Turnul Sfatului in all seasons, of course especially on summer when it is very nice to drink somethin on terraces there and in winter when there are fares. The atmosphere is very friendly, full of people from all part of the world, in which you are melting.

I alsways like to go by this tower, impressive from any angle. It is located in the old town of Sibiu, a well preserved medieval area of the city.

Turnul Sfatului is a seven-floor tower and in each one you can find depending of the time of the year you're visiting it, different kinds of expositions accompained by a paceful sorrounding music. At the 6th floor you can see the clockwork and at the last one the views of Sibiu are amazing.

Glad that there's something on each floor to look at (mainly as an excuse for a rest on the way up). Found the clock mechanism really fascinating to watch. Great views over Sibiu. A pleasant half hour for just 2 lei each !

Entrance fee is minimal. Climb the spiral stairs to the top for some amazing views over the old town. Could be very congested if you go when it is busy, and glass on the windows is pretty dirty by the end of the day, but the building is nice as are the views.
