When in Sibiu, you've got to visit the tower, stunning views, great atmosphere, especially during winter, when the Christmas lights are on.

Well, u have to climb the stairs, seven floors :) There is no room on the stairs for 2 people, so u have to wait if somebody is coming from the opposite direction. The view from the top it is very nice.

Clock tower is a must see. Splendid view. Would not be appropriate for someone with physical issues, however.

It's located between Piata Mare and Piata Mica and it's a must see in Sibiu. It's worth climbing the stairs and get to the top. The view of the town is magnificent from there.

Definitely worth climbing to the top for 2 leu. The views of Sibiu are stunning. We went up on a clear night just before sunset and I would definitely recommend doing that!

Nice tower, but not really spectacular. Part of your tour around historic centre of Sibiu. Lots of other sites around.

The crowded tower where the city council used to meet seats between Large & Small sq, offering some great vistas from its windows. There are steep narrow stairs and with the crowds flocking in in summer it can get a bit annoingly busy & noisy. But the bit of history is worth the wait and effort.
