Notable regional history & culture museum with large fine arts, science & archaeology collections. The tower is unavoidable and one of the many touristic sights. Gorlitz is a fantastic town with several towers and many architectural buildings to admire.

Out of the two sister towns, Zgorzelec and Gorlitz, the latter has more to offer to tourists than the former. And out of all the sights in Gorlitz, Kaisertrutz Bastion and Reichenbacher Turm (one next to each other) have become my favourite ones.

This is not review of Reichenbacher, but this is my opinion of the whole Old Town in Goerlitz. This town is underrated, not well-known, but 2-3 hours spent there was really good. Great stop between Dresden and Wroclaw.

Before entering, buy your tickets across the street in the museum (in the Imperial Keep). The tower offers a great view of the town and contains small exhibits of medieval armor and weaponry. There is no elevator.

One of four old towers you can visit in Görlitz. Tickets are from the Cultural Historical Museum across the (very busy) street where they were nice enough to let me leave the kid's pram. For a couple of Euros you can climb the tower and...More

Of all of the towers in Görlitz, this was the only one open. Be sure to get your 3€ ticket at the museum across the street before entry. None of the descriptions are in English, which is a downside. However the displays are nice to...More

This tower provides you with nice views of the city and should be visit only for that reason. The museum is quite poor and nothing is in EN (only in German and Polish). But the tower itself is interesting and the views worth the small...More
