Fabulous view of the city. Great exhibitions inside. Funicular wasn’t working and it’s a steep walk up, and more stairs inside so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. But if you can it’s worth the visit
Very much enjoyed taking in the history and impressive views over and around Vilnius. Entry to the museum was good value and it's a good work out walking all the way up the cobbled hill! Very much worth a visit.
If you can possibly manage it, the climb to this tower is well worth the effort. Even if you don't climb the tower itself, the view of Vilnius from its base is still quite nice. We visited around sunset, which gave us the opportunity to see the city in the final moments of sunlight and then appreciate it as the sky grew darker and the surrounding lights came on. Great experience.
Amazing place. Very scenic view. This castle is built on a very strategic place, which means the hill it is on is very hard to climb (if you don't use the stairs).
Gediminas Castle Tower is a must visit landmark in Lithuania's capital city. With multilingual tour guides happy to help, this makes the exploration of this building even better. With all the important dates if this Castle stated clearly in books that you can buy in the ticket office, you will know more about this historic castle. The walk up to it gives you a clear view of the busy city, even though it is a clear challenge to actually get up. But for the lovely experience I have had there with my family, I am rating Gediminas Castle Tower five stars.
