Not only is the view of this very scenic city great, but the climb itself was fun. You get a real sense of the wood structure of the interior of the tower as you climb. It's not for those afraid of heights or slightly dark spaces.

One of Sibiu's highlights for sure, spectacular building to see and the view from atop the tower is fantastic

I've visited the inside of the cathedral for the first time last month. It is impressive and simple in the same time, pretty well organized, for a nice view over the city you should climb the stairs to the tower. This tower is nicer during summer times, it doesn't have glass windows, than Turnul Sfatului which is nicer during winter.

Certainly worth a visit. Interesting artwork inside, and you can see the tomb of Vlad the Impaler's son. The views from the tower are spectacular, but climbing it is not for the faint-hearted. The stairs are relatively secure, but open, if you don't like heights - or fluttering pigeons - maybe give it a miss!

Impressive architectural piece. Exquisite painted glass windows. Great atmosphere created by the organon player. Go up in the tower for a nice view over the city.

Everything started there... The church is very beautiful, and worth climbing the tower (i consider the stairs are quite safe).

The church is fantastic, both on the inside and the outside :) But, if you wanna go up for a great view of the city...you might consider the stairs unsafe :( I really wanted to, but didn't have the guts for it.

Church and entry to the tower combined ticket was 8 lei per person. The church was an impressive example of Lutheran style being very tall ached ceiling but with walls and ceiling not painted unlike the nearby Catholic and new Orthodox churches which have excellent interiors but it is a very impressive interior nonetheless. The high point here was the... More

The Evangelical Cathedral is a must do when visiting Sibiu. Absolutely beautiful inside and the view from the tower is amazing. The walk to the top is well worth the effort, but anyone with vertigo will freak out, as would vacationing Work, Health & Safety Inspectors - so make sure you do it soon.
