  • Great city view but beware the last steps are claustrophobic and not much accessible because it's too narrow.
  • The entrance fee is a 1 euro surplus on the combo tickets or 2 euro separately. The stairway gets very narrow near the top so if you are very claustrophobic I wouldn't recommend it. I'm a little claustrophobic but didn't have any problems with it. That also means not all body types will be able to get to the top, but they will probably tell you this at the entrance at the bottom. There can't be much more than say 6 or so people at the top of the tower at any one time. It's 184 steps so if you have a heart condition it's not a good idea. At the top you can take nice panoramic pictures though so worth the price of the admission for me.
