Perlach Tower, Augsburg

4.4
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. Take a look at our Augsburg route builder to schedule your visit to Perlach Tower and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • For those who are with your heart examination day, ok. Take ear plugs, because when the bells are deafening. Rather than jellybeans in the cages of tickets should give ear plugs. The luck I had in the bag.

  • The climb is a little tiring but for views above worth the effort! You should have heard the Bell game, but perhaps not at the top...

  • FYI, closed from October 31 until April. It’s not listed on the tourism website or the google listing. It’s posted right at the entry door. Would love to give it a higher rating, but we drove quite a distance for naught. The rest of the city is nice enough, though.
  • A great place to climb when you are visiting Augsburg. You can get a view of the entire city from inside the tower and learn some history too. It's only €2 entry (I think) so it's definitely worth it!
  • 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
