“Nice view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Worth to take a short walk on a bit of a steep cliff. Warning, the stones on the footpath might be very slippery when it gets wet so be careful. Overall it's a lovely photo opportunity and you'll enjoy the view of the whole Old Town with oh-so-many churches clearly visible from the top. Have not noticed any kind of remarkable museum collection there, most of it is located under the Castle Hill in the Arsenal. It's open since 7 a.m. which is amazing if you want to take some lovely pictures with a great morning light. I think it closes around 11 p.m.

“Interesting Historic Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

While in Vilnius I had the opportunity to take a hike to the top of castle hill. For the history buff it is a remarkable location with interesting history. It is a good stroll up a steep hill but the view at the top is worth it.

There is a charge to enter the remaining tower. Be aware that the only money that is take in Lithuanian, no US or Euros. This was the only disappointment that I had but I did get the view and the excitement of being there at no cost.

Not good for families with strollers or small children. Will be hard for them to understand what they are seeing. Teens okay, family, couples, solo, friends all a fun trip

“Great view, worth a look!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

There's a nice lift to the top area where you can then go into another building to look at some history items. You can then view all around once your on the top and makes for some nice photos

“Nice point of view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Not much to say... but the view is nice from there. It can be a good way to finish a tour of the old town before going to Böff just in front along the river !

Just a hill with the tower on top. One of the Lithuanian state symbols. One time visit..that's it..
