The historical town is amazing with its many churches & old buildings. The area is very walkable. You are able to see some of the old city wall which is impresive.

entry fee is cheaper, 2 RON, however the view is not as fantastic as the Evangelical Church Tower which I highly recommend

The climb to the tower was not so exhausting. Half of it was narrow staircase in spiral Form but half of it was a normal wide staircase made of wood so this was much better. The views are great. But as others said, there is the window glass. If it is not cleaned properly, it can reflect on your photos.

What can you get with less than 50 cents (Euro) these days? Not a lot, so it really is nothing to get a great view over the square and of Sibiu itself. The stairway is narrow and steep, but then it is an old building. If you can climb up the stairs just splash out, nothing to lose. As you go up you will pass a number of rooms in which they may have exhibitions - on my visit some local artists were busy setting up - very effective and interesting installations. Before reaching the highest platform one passes by the bells.

With due respect to its rich history, it is another tower similar to the many other towers around Europe. It does looks nice during the night.

For 2 lei this is definitely a must do. The entrance is up some stairs at the bottom of the Council building (under the white arches). You pay and then climb up a few flights of stairs which aren’t too steep and are fairly wide compared to many other towers. At the top, you get a great panorama for the price and, although it’s enclosed so your photos might not be as good, it’s amazing value for the price. If you can time it for golden hour, then you’re in for a treat.

Good views to be had from this tower in the centre of gorgeous Sibiu. The climb is fairly short in contrast to many towers, & for the most part is via a comparatively wide wooden staircase. Ample breather platforms on the way up too. The top level isn’t open to the elements, so you’re capturing your pics through one of four windows. Worthwhile though, & only 2 lei.

Probably the best views over Sibiu, with temporary exhibitions on the way up.
The price is really low, making it totally worthwhile if you like to have birds eye.

A cool tower in the middle of the Old Town with great views of the city. the climb is not easy (very tight stairs and no opening (no AC, no opened windows - so not easy to breath). The views from the top are great but they are thru tiny windows, but it worth the climb.
