You can see this tower from everywhere. You can visit it also and go on the top but you can also see it from underneath also. It is one of the symbols of Veszprém.

At Castle Hill, this historical tower offers amazing views of all of Veszprem and the surrounding countryside. A must see and do.

You just climb the stairs and see the town. Thats it. It is better to take a local with you who can explain what you see. Avoid in round time. It plays a lud music in every hour.
