Gediminas Castle Tower, Vilnius

4.4
#1 of 42 in Museums in Vilnius
Perched atop a hill on the site of a medieval castle, Gediminas Castle Tower today offers both sweeping views of Vilnius and represents one of the city's (and the country's) most enduring symbols. Originally a part of a 15th-century brick fortress, the tower's current iteration is the result of a reconstruction in 1930. Wander the path from the base of the hill to the tower and be rewarded with panoramic views of Vilnius' old and new areas, as well as the surrounding hills. Climb to the top of the structure for completely unobstructed views. Be sure to take a look at the small archaeological and historical exhibitions within, detailing the origins and history of the tower, as well as Lithuania's split from the Soviet Union in 1990. Using our world travel planner, Vilnius attractions like Gediminas Castle Tower can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A small nice exhibition on several floors (no lift?) on the history of the upper castle and the fight for Lithuanian freedom that was centred here. The funicular was not working (Dec 2019) and the walk up is potentially dangerous when its wet (large slippery stones before wooden steps).
  • Very highly recommend to visit if you are in Vilnius!! The castle tower is in the city center and it's easy to reach it. It's possible to walk and there is an elevator for 2eur to go and come back. The view it's already amazing from the hill up, but it's also recommended to enter in the tower where you will find historical exhibition and 360° panoramic view from the topic. The view from there is breathtaking and extraordinary.
