Really nice sights, probably best in town, with tiny museum in the tower, but nothing much, 30-60 min including climbing uphill. Nice to visit though.

Didn't enter the tower but the view is great. You can walk up instead of taking the cable car. I was too early so that what I did. Saved a euro and got 10 minutes of exercise

Good place to get a bigger picture of the city! It is nice to walk there, some exercise and so on! Worth to check once in Vilnius!

Brilliant views of the city from here. You can take the hill train or walk up depending how energetic you are feeling.

Amazing views from the top We took the €1 fernicular tram to the top which was fast and cheap. Amazing views. They are redoing the walkways up and I suspect this will be one more touristy with little shops and cafes at the top We...More

A one euro cable cart to the top if needed or a winding walk. Great views from the top. 5 euro entrance to the tower I believe was well worth it. Several displays inside and all in English explaining the history of the tower and...More
