Attraction details
Owner description: The Water Tower was built in 1900 entirely of red unplastered bricks in the neo-gothic style with interesting external vaulting around its crown and two coats of arms over the entrance: one Mazurian and one municipal to emphasise its being part of the region. The water reservoir in the tower distributed water to all the dwellings for 97 years. Nowadays, following the great reconstruction of the interior and adding a dome and three additional floors and extending the viewing platform with telescopes, the tower has become Giżycko’s most unique tourist attraction. To reach the top, one has to climb 129 steps (or use the lift). The highest floor of the tower is 162 m above sea level and it houses a café. From this height, one can truly appreciate the panorama of the town and the surrounding areas with lakes and forests – a typical Mazurian landscape. The inside the tower houses the local museum with exhibits that illustrate the past life of the local people.

It is one of the best place to see this town and one of the bigest lake in Poland from high! Upstairs you can chill, drink a coffee and enjoy an amazing view. I liked it very much!

Pleasant coffee bar at the top. Go up the final stairs to enjoy the views with your coffee. There is a lift but interesting displays if you walk down. If you climb and it becomes too much you can take lift the rest of the way.

It is a small, but quite interesting museum witha a nice view. 360 city view was good for city orientation as well.

Small but nice
Includes a museum and a view around the area. Worth to get a feeling of the surroundings.

This place cost for 10 zlots (for locals 5 zlots). There is little musiem and coffeteria on the top which i did not tried. On the top of tower you can view the city view. For my personal opinion if you have other plans what to see and to do, you can skip it. The view is not very impressive.
