The scavenger hunt is a great way for youngsters to discover a city. The tasks come in tin boxes that can be given to the youngsters so that they can start and end the rally whenever they want and set the pace themselves. For our group, however, the number of tasks seemed too much, so unfortunately they didn't complete the entire scavenger hunt, which was okay. The contact with the providers was great and very friendly.

A narrow spiral staircase leads to the three different levels. Two of them show the history of the tower and have beautifully painted windows. From the attic you can then climb the battlement and enjoy the view all around. Since renovation work was being carried out on the roof and in the area of the battlement, it was a bit cramped. So viewpoint highly recommended!

There isn't so much to see in this tower, but it's nice to read the history and gain information about Prague's past and other aspects. The view is very nice and the employees were very friendly. Enjoyed their hosting and attention.
