We went to see the tower, and the view from reading other people’s reviews, but didn’t expect it to be so run down. The 8” stone steps are crumbling, half of the wood handrails are missing, and the top wood steps have missing steps. I...More

This "White Tower" affords amazing views of Brașov. It's best to come in late afternoon or at sunrise. If you choose the latter like I did, it will be eerily quiet (because the interior is open only Tues-Sun at 10:00-17:00) but still perfectly safe so...More

One of the best view in Brasov, is from this tower. I recommend to go there on foot from the city center, to see the old walls.

This is a good tower to climb and have a look on the city. Not very hard to get up. Free watch, worth trying,.

Nothing spectacular about this tower, but it's a good point to take pictures of the city center below, the black church and the concoul square. From Alb tower it's 3 minutes walk through the forest and you will reach the other tower (black Alb) C...More

Amazing to believe this semicircular tower was built in 1494 as part of the city's defensive fortifications. If only walls could speak!

It's a nice place, and the view from it is amazing, you can see Brasov from a closer place (closer than Tampa mountain for example).
