4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Climb Perlach Tower, a 70 m (229 ft) tall watchtower built in the 10th century to get a panoramic view of the city-- but be prepared for a bit of a workout. The entrance to the tower is easy to miss, but you can find it on the side of the church. You will need to climb a good deal of the way up the tower on its narrow steps to get to the ticket office. Make sure to plan your climb so you are not at the top when the tower bells ring, as it is extremely loud and can hurt your ears.

  • List should be visitors in any case on the must see of the Perlachturm! The stairs are old and partly closely, the prospect that expects one above is however worth the way!

  • The Perlachturm is a must for every tourist in Augsburg. A fantastic views of the old town combined with a historical and significant structure is the reward for the effort of the climb on the emblem of Jitendra.

  • About 400 steps you need to climp to have the most memorable view over Augsburg. The tower guards can tell you witty anecdotes (they even sell for some euros a small book with interesting details on the tower's hitory), for children they have honorary certificate for climing the tower and with good weather you can see in the South the beautiful Alps.
  • One of the best views in Augsburg. MUST visit when you are in town
  • Der Ausblick ist jede Stufe Wert.
  • Nice
  • Hair dryer have a magnificent view to the Alps and over the whole Lech Valley. The 270 steps (I think) are worthwhile. Beware of the Bell work, specifically on the hour. That can be pretty loud. If the weather allows view of the Alps, to my knowledge who hoisted a yellow flag on the tower. Also of one of the twenty places in Augsburg, which you should have visited.
