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

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.

Lithuanian Duke built it around five centuries ago, but parts of it were added or restored later. When you climb up and then get to the upper floors of the tower, the view is very nice and practically you can see entire Vilnius.

We arrived to this place but seem closed for renovation due some erosion in some side of the surrounding hills. We don’t have any written information when it will be open for Visitor again.

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!
