Sightseeing tower at Katarínka – more information

Sightseeing tower at Katarínka is closed by default. It will be open only during specified dates – see on the right – Nearest tower opening.

Good weather is a must. Entries occur every top of the hour*; max. 16 visitors can enter the tower at one time and only with 2 guides.

Children taller than 130 cm can enter only accompanied by an adult person: 1 adult on 1 child** (it is necessary to oversee the child all the time and stairs are steep, going up to 30 m).

Standard guided tour in the sightseeing tower takes 25-40 minutes.


* Permanent access to sightseeing tower is not guaranteed – depending on availability of guides, number of visitors and weather – tower must be closed in case of bad weather. Current information about the next sightseeing is always available directly under the tower.

** Limitations for children are due to steep and long stairs (almost like ladders). Therefore, each child/teenager must be secured and accompanied by an adult. Height limitation for young children is due to steep stairs and also due to height of window ledges and wall edge on the top – see photos. Smaller children would not see anything and it is forbidden to lift children up.
