The best place to a take a shot of Vilnius, tickets are cheap and the view is amazing. If you like baltic history is a must to take a look.

Unfortunately when we visited, the funicular was under repair. (Also on top, they do work on some area) So we decided to walk up. It is not too hard as long as you are wearing suitable shoes. Due to the stone paved way, the road...More

Walking up the cobblestone trail to the tower is steep and taxing but the view from the top is great, you can have a first hand look at the river and the town. Worth the effort!

It's worth the walk to the top of the cobbled stone road or you can pay 1 euro for the funicular. Great views of Old Town and the city from up top even if you don't pay to climb the tower.

Bit of a walk on uneven cobblestones but your reward is a panorama of the old town As other people have reported the funicular remains unoperational

The funicular is currently not operating, so take comfortable shoes for the short walk up the hill. Great view over the whole city. Didn't visit the tower as €5 seemed excessive for a tiny exhibition and a viewing point only slightly higher than the one...More

If you want to have a good look onto the city of Vilnius, you must get there. Unfortunately the escalator didn't work and it was a bit hard to get up the hill on foot.
