Cheap entry fees and some nice views of the old town center from the top! I recommend going up on a clear day right around sunset when the old buildings are soaked in the orange glow of the sunset!

For just 2 lei (less than 50 cents) you can have a beautiful view of Sibiu's main square, while also visiting a beautiful, old tower and a very interesting bell.

It's tiny inside this stairwell, but seeing the inner workings of the clock and of course the views from the top make it worth it!

If you have time and energy, get up in the tower, pass the clock mechanism (is still working) and look out through the small narrow windows on the top. It is a very narrow staircase.

Visited last week during a city break . The trip up the tower gives a great view of the roof tops of the city as well as giving some great history . Also a great value thing to do

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!
