“An Easy Climb with Fantastic Views”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Unlike some of these Medieval towers, this one is quite easy to climb. Lots of landings to rest at before going higher. Note that they charge you to take photos inside. You could take them when they're not looking- I've heard that some people have done that :) Anyway, once you get to the top, the view is outstanding. You can see the entire old town and the modern town as well.

“Town Hall Tower”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

People complain but it is only 187 steps to the top and from there you have a fantastic view of the old town and beyond. The old town in Torun is small so by climbing the tower you can appreciate the varied architecture.

“Lots of stairs”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Great views up the too, but be warned, there are lots of stairs, some more rickety than others. Take a camera with you and be prepared to take some gorgeous photos.

“Overlooking the city!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Climbed the Clock/Bell Tower and the views from the top were very good, but..... a word of warning.... If you do it, then time your climb between the 1/4 hours and you won't get the bells sounding off as you get to the floor where they are!
I did not and the sound was very nice but quite startling and very LOUD!

“Impressive”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

A very impressive 14C building in the centre of a very impressive Old Town square. Equally good in the day or illuminated at night. Looks like it survived WW2 mostly intact. Spend a little time looking up at the fine brickwork and stained glass windows. How did they build these places?
