From the tower you can enjoy one of the best views of the old center. There is music playing inside that creates a very nice atmosphere and they have small exhibitions at every level. But prepare to climb a lot of stairs!

“Best panorama view in Sibiu”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

The entrance of The Tower of the Council is somehow hidden from a traveller's view. There's a small door, at the base of the tower, facing the Bridge of Lies in Small Square (Piata Mica). There are a few steps at the door, then one should go up to the first level in order to buy a ticket or some souvenirs. A warm atmosphere and a nice person welcomes you here. At the time I was visiting Sibiu, at the next level a temporary photographic exhibition was placed. On the way to the top, the mechanism of the clock can be admired. Finally the top level. From here one could get the best panorama view of the city and, my favourite view: Fagaras Mountains. I'll stop here with this image in my mind! Enjoy your trip to Sibiu!

“Good view”
Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

It's a nice building with a beautiful view of the city. The history is visible at every step you take. It was a beautiful photography exhibition inside the tower.

“Great views over the city and beyond”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

Lovely views over the city, nice to see how the view changes as you go up the floors of the tower. You can even see right to the snow-topped Carpathian mountains! And for only 2 lei.

Don't let the depressing music put you off :-)
