Part of the complex at the cathedral hill, partly managed by county council run Muzeum Mikołaja Kopernika (Nicolaus Copernicus Museum) - that's the bottom part, with planetarium, and partly by the cathedral authorities - that's the top part, with the viewing tarrace, with views all over the town, and towards Mierzeja Wiślana (Vistula Split) far on the horizon, enclosing the Vistula Bay. Spiral staircase might be not appropriate for everyone. Foucault pendulum within the staircase just to proof the Earth is moving, which was first proven in the neighbouring tower, now called Kopernik tower, by the man himself. Tickets for the tower are sold at the tower or at the entrance to the cathedral. No car park at the cathedral hill, leave your car close to the port.

Scientific landmark... see the earth spin and take in the rooftop view
Aug. 2018
A very interesting and very clear demonstration of Copernicus's experiment to prove the earth is spinning. Note the marks on the circular pit rim where the pendulum is swinging... make your way up the different levels to the rooftop and the fantastic view of the Vistula Lagoon. With binoculars, the Russian port of Baltiysk is visible as is the border on the Vistula Spit.

Fantastic view from the top 70 meters above the see level.

The tower is part of the complex but free standing. The challenge of the spiral staircase is worth it. The view is your reward. Foucault pendulum - they are so rare to see! -is another attraction of this place.

just a tall building

Another money-draining exercise. Staff is there for a single purpose. Tall building with a nice view, Foucault pendulum - that's it.

Bird's eye view

There's a remarkable view from up here, well worth the long climb up the unending spiral staircases. If you read a bit of history of this place before going up, the experience would be optimised. What you see from up here is a picture of tranquillity, deceptively concealing the tragedies that this place experienced during World War II.

Spectacular view

Great climbing exercise with an amazing view over the town of Frombork, Vistula Lagoon and Vistula Spit. Best place for taking pictures. In the middle of the tower you can find Foucault pendulum, device conceived as an experiment to demonstrate rotation of the Earth.

Should see
Jul. 2016 • Couples
Easy to reach. Intrasting to see. Beautiful panoramic view of the town and bay. We wasn't very happy about amount of concrete which was used instead of wood inside. However highly recommened.
