Well worth the reasonable fee to trek up the stairs of this historic building for the great views of this lovely old town. There are two exhibition stops on the way up to break the journey and give some history of the building and it’s occupants.

Really nice view, by climbing stairs in the tower, or each floor is situated some exhibition. Reasonable price and good idea what to do in Gyor

We were recommended to climb this tower by the tourist information office for the spectacular panoramic views and we were not disappointed. It was not very well signposted but we managed to find the entrance tucked away in the corner of the square near the church. There are a lot of steps to climb and a spiral staircase at the top but well worth the effort for the views. There is also and exhibition area on the ground floor which was interesting.

Situated right next the basicila, on Káptalan Hill.
Entry fee is 1000 HUF/adult, but there are some discounts.
There is an exhibition in the cellars on the martyrdom of Blessed Bishop Vilmos Apor, a catholic WW2 hero of Győr, a video about the history of the bishopric shown on the first floor, a look out point on the top of the tower and a lot of stairs. Not wheelchair friendly at all.
Tickets and souvenirs can be purchased by card, too. Kind ladies at the counter.
Recommended.

Közvetlenül a bazilika mellett található, a Káptalandombon.
A teljesárú belépő 1000 Ft/fő, de vannak kedvezményes jegyek is.
A pincében egy kiállítás látható Győr második világháborús hősének, Boldog Apor Vilmos püspöknek a mártíromságáról, az első emeleten egy videót vetítenek a püspökség történetéről, és a torony tetején egy kilátó van. Mozgássérülteknek nem ajánlott, csak lépcső van, de abból sok.
Kártyával is lehet fizetni a jegyekért és szuvenírekért. Az eladóhölgyek nagyon kedvesek.
Ajánlom.

I thought I would not survive climbimg so many steps - but there were resting floors where you could refresh while looking at old photos of the city. Absolutely stunning view if the city - we have been there with a guide, so best point to show the attractions.
Whole Bishop area is wonderful: garden, tower as well, nicely renovated, and good keep of memory for their martyr.
