Going to Brasov multiple times, I'm always in the search of the perfect picture. While tried to get very high up on the hills for some great views, none of them compares with the view from the White Tower. Just a close walk from the...More

There are several watch towers forming part of the fortifications of Brasov, none of which seem to be open to visit! This tower is certainly imposing and was originally joined to the city walls by a fortified passageway. The climb up the steps is very...More

The tower is closed to visitors inside, however, it’s surrounding staircases provide some of the best views of the historic old city center, including the Black Church. Great spot for a photo op!

Good as a viewing platform only. There is no admission to this tower. Exterior of the structure appears sound. Located very visibly overlooking the town square.

it would have been nice to be able to visit inside; I do not know if it has ever been opened. The wooden stairs need some repairing. However, it has a great view over the Old city and Tampa mountain. It worth the visit.

It is a simple tower, no more, in not the best shape. It is not possible to get in, can be watched only from outside. The view of the city is nice from there.

It was a nice climb, but, unless you plan to work out, don't take the stairs. There's a short trail in the forest as you're coming from the Black Tower.

It's a pretty cool tower, near Graft bastion, with nice views over the city. You can go also in the evening, for a nice feeling. You can't enter inside.
