Named after the plastered white-washed walls of the tower, the White Tower is a point of attraction in the Belvedere refuge on your way to Poiana Brasov. It dates back to the 15th century and was built to serve as a defensive fortification which was also an observation deck. The tower stands at a height of 19 meters (give or take 1 meter depending on the ground profile) with a construction of 5 levels. Observe the ramparts, windows, semi-circular layout of the building and the rustic balconies that add their charm to the structure. Along with other building around the city, the tower was also damaged during the 1689 fire and was renovated in the 18th century. The tower was linked to the Graft Bastion by a mobile bridge that covered a distance of 59 meters and even today, a walk here gives you a quick preview of how it would have been during the past centuries.
Its location on the hill, made it an ideal spot to lookout for any oncoming attacks and threats and even today it offers one of the best views of Brasov’s skyline. Apart from its construction, design and used of wood to form its interiors, the view from the white tower is what steals the show.

Very nice view. If you're going on winter, take care on the stairs, they're slippery. But all the effort worths it for a splendid panorama.
Very close to the city centre, convenient for a quick visit. Tiny bit of uphill walking. The view from the top is amazing, you can see the whole city. Pretty building, didn't find it open.
The White Tower is an interesting structure overlooking Brasov. There's a little bit of walking required to get here and once seen not much else to detain you. Apparently there's a museum inside.
It’s a beautiful monument from Brasov with a history. From there you can see the old city!
Great view of the whole Old Town, though the steps are pretty steep and kinda slippery, so watch out for that!
