The best view point on Vilnius. The climb is steep, but not dangerous, the tower itself is not extraordinary, but still impressive. And it is free, so don't miss it

This was a serious climb up lots of wooden stairs. The views from the top were stunning and made the climb worthwhile. However, arrived exactly on the hour and my ears are still ringing _ so be warned!!!

We enjoyed the walk up the hill from the river side. The tram was not working the day we came by. Be sure to go to the top for a great 360degree view. From there the museum is the obvious next stop.

You can climb on the hill and have a good view for free, and it`s possible also to get on the tower itself for money. It`s worth it - you can see old and new town, all towers and rivers from there. They have a...More

There are great 360 degree views of the City. It`s quite a climb to reach the tower and the path gets slippy in the wet!

The signs to the steps up were clearly marked. It was a nice short steep hike! The road is built on rock stones. Be aware, there are no restrooms or snack for sale. No fee. Great views at day or night! The gate closes at...More
