4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
Climb to the wooden balcony at the top of Clock Tower for panoramic views of the town. On your way up, peek into the mechanism of the clock, which rotates the painted wooden figurines of pagan gods personifying the days of the week. The tower was built as part of the city's defense system in the 14th century and used to control the main gate of the citadel. The four corner turrets symbolize the town's judicial autonomy. The roof of the tower gained its present Baroque form after a fire in 1676. The tower, which once stored the city's treasures, today houses its history museum. Put Clock Tower and other Sighisoara attractions into our Sighisoara family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • הגענו ביום גשום . הטיפוס למגדל השעון היה במקום. טיפוס של כ 100 מדרגות עץ. מראש המגדל השקף נוף הגגות האדומים והעיר. בין קומה לקומה ניתן לעצור לתצוגה של התפתחות הרפואה שעונים ועוד. 
  • The Museum is divided into several floors of the tower. Each floor has its own topic and interesting exhibitions. The balcony on the top floor offers a great overview on the whole village

  • 鐘樓屹立在舊城區,是一座歷史由久而且非常漂亮的建築,舊城區的道路保持昔日以磚推砌的面貌,襯托出鐘樓及附近建築物,彷彿回到過去,別具特色。踏上鐘樓觀景台更可飽覽舊城區及附近已發展區域的美景,來這裡旅遊一定要在此鐘樓駐足細味。 
  • Dominates Sighisoara. Excellent germanic medieval tower, it holds the History Museum. As a bonus, the façade offers a lot of decorative details which surely will delight your eyes. It's a must see, you can't really miss it though. If you are curious enough you will find right near the tower, a few very old saxon tombs with funeral stones. I will post a photo with one of the funeral stones.
  • A nice museum where you can see medieval finds. The view from the tower is wonderful
  • Principală atracție turisticaba orașului.

  • Very nice view from the observers deck. Clock mechanism is well preserved and runs great.
