If you have time and energy, get up in the tower, pass the clock mechanism (is still working) and look out through the small narrow windows on the top. It is a very narrow staircase.

When in Sibiu, you've got to visit the tower, stunning views, great atmosphere, especially during winter, when the Christmas lights are on.

Well, u have to climb the stairs, seven floors :) There is no room on the stairs for 2 people, so u have to wait if somebody is coming from the opposite direction. The view from the top it is very nice.

Clock tower is a must see. Splendid view. Would not be appropriate for someone with physical issues, however.
