Well worth the effort for a great view of Sibiu. Small winding stair case takes you right up into the tower for a very small entrance fee.Take your camera.

Lovely piece of history of medieval Sibiu. Provides good view of the city. Do give your self ample time to stroll around Piata mare, mica and huet to cover all aspects of this medieval past.

Considered the oldest existing building in the city, it is only the first gate tower of fortifications preserved and dates back to the turn of the century XII or XIII.

I stayed at the Vicenza Square Hotel, so obviously I walked those stairs up and down several times to get to and from Piata Huet and the old city.
