“A must”
Review of Clock Tower

Clock Tower
Ranked #3 of 22 things to do in Sighisoara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

It's very pretty and the views from the top are lovely. A photographer's dream, really.

Not too many stairs to climb, but a little steep, narrow and a low ceiling at times, a few objects on display with explanations in English, German, French and Romanian.

Photos and videos inside are not allowed.

You can purchase a combo ticket for the tower, the torture chamber and the history museum. Very much worth a visit!

Fantastic view over the town and countryside from the top and lots of historical displays on the way up

After walking up the stairs through the historic museum of the building we ended up in the clock tower and when we got out there to look around it was nothing but astounding! The view of Sighisoara was breathtaking and the atmosphere was magnificent. Also, seeing it from a slight distance was awesome, as we could see the figures in the clock change as the new hour came. Really worth the visit if in the area! There is a slight fee to get in, but then you also get to see the historic museum. And the fee is very small and really worth it!

Lightened at night. Take the old city map from the hotel and read about the history of the buildings.

Excellent museum with an homeopathic corner.
The view from the top and the ancient clock really make the difference
