It is a long steep set of steps but the 360 degree view is beautiful. Gives perspective to the “crater”. Small fee when you get to the top. Very windy up there and even in the clouds we enjoyed.

The bell tower of the church is called "Daniel" by the locals. After climbing the stairs to the top, one is rewarded with amazing views in all directions that provide a great sense of Nördlingen's circular layout.

This was well worth the climb up the steps you really got a great view and clear indication of where the crater was as well as a view of the city.

It doesn't actually take very long to get to the top of the tower and the views are definitely worth the climb!

Nordlingen is a beautiful town. Climbing up the tower is tiring but the views are great. There is a cat living in a tower but we did not see it. You can see some photos of the cat sitting on the railing which I think...More

Such a quirky treat! The human powered lift, the views, the cat (not that we saw him) and very helpful Towerman.

A tower in the center of town with the church. Very high, thus it has great views out over the city. Long climb, but very much worth it.

350 steps, stone to start with, then wooden, getting narrower and narrower. Best not to look up, that put half our party right off, and they headed back down. You pay near the top, which seemed weird to us, worth the cost, there was a...More

That's the feeling one senses once they have a good look from the upper view of the church bell. It is quite a long way up, some 600 steps or so, but once you reach the top, the view is incredibly rewarding! Additional to say,...More
