Went there early morning, not crowded and it was a nice climb through a park. However, there is a construction going on, and I understand the funicular train is closed. So you need to climb a wide path of cobblestone slope.

Unfortunately when we visited, the funicular was under repair. (Also on top, they do work on some area) So we decided to walk up. It is not too hard as long as you are wearing suitable shoes. Due to the stone paved way, the road...More

Walking up the cobblestone trail to the tower is steep and taxing but the view from the top is great, you can have a first hand look at the river and the town. Worth the effort!
