Perlach Tower, Augsburg

(4.4/5 based on 170+ 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. Make Perlach Tower part of your personalized Augsburg itinerary using our Augsburg trip itinerary builder.

  • Even the Alps can be seen in good weather. Go class views of Augsburg just maybe down if the bells are ringing!

  • Because you have time up as Augsburg! The Perlachturm offers with its 70 meters, a great views of Augsburg. The 258 levels are fairly easy to defeat. This is also good with children. But more people from the ceiling should be eight. I have several times cut the head. I believe price was 3 euros pP so it's worth to us. Great views and a tolels Klockenspiel.

  • Too too beautiful. Both the tower and the Church itself. A Pearl of the city centre. Not to be missed!

  • 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.
