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.

Dominant architectural piece in the city, overlooking the town centre and the main square. Not too much details though.

One great surprise was Turnul Sfatului for me, because it was so much more than expected. I assumed (without any prior reading) there would be 2 floors max to climb and there are 5 storeys and the panoramic top view is really impressive. Plus we got to see some very nice art exhibition.

The Council Tower is one of the symbols of Sibiu.
Initially having the function of defense tower, it partially collapsed in 1585, following an earthquake. The ground floor and the first two floors belong today to the original construction of the century. XIII.The present form of the tower is: reconstruction executed between the years 1824-1826.

For only 2 lei we had a breathtaking view over the whole town. We had a stroll around the main attractions first and went up there as our last sightseeing stop. Therefore we knew what we where overlooking. Perfect ending of the exploration!
There was an “exposition” too which was quite nice.
