“Great view, can be hard to find entrance”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The view over Augsburg from the Perlachturm is great. The entrance can be a bit hard to find - it's on the side of the church, where you only wonder if it's a door left open. The ticket office is just below the top of the tower, so you have to climb quite a bit to get there.

There climb is steep and narrow, so go one by one and catch your breath. It's probably not the thing if you're afraid of heights.

“Entrance tucked away”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The Perlachturm was a fair climb to a nice view. The entrance is just around the corner from the front of the church, tucked away inside an alley with the ticket booth most of the way up the tower.

Make sure to plan your climb so that you are NOT up top during the bell ringing. We did not have that problem, but the ticket lady was warning people of the time as we started down.

“Great view”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

I loved the Perlach tower. The walk up is just enough to make you feel like you have done some exercise, great view from the top. Pretty cheap, 2 € or around that per person with a nice little display of wartime germany on the way up.

“At one time a watchtower, it's currently the best view in town”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Simply the best view of Augsburg, the down side is that it's a LOT of stairs.
