Very nice view from the top of the tower. Can see Sibiu 360 degree and if clear day you can see the Carpatian mountains . Beautiful view. The tower 800 years old. Very nice and a lot of history. Must see if visit Sibiu.

It is a short climb to the top of the tower and not too steep. We were the only people up there at the time of our visit. The uninterrupted views of Sibiu from the top are unbeatable.

Turnul Sfatului was very Viena-ish style in December, when I visit Christmas Market from Sibiu. Recommend it!

The ascent is definitely worhy, Sibiu looks amazing from up there. Though the place could be more animated, some paintings and photos are not enough.

Nice to visit once. The panoramic view from the top is lovely, especially on winter nights when all the lights are lit.
