In addition to TELLING time, Sighisoara's Clock Tower also lets you GO BACK IN TIME! Yup, it is home to the quaint little History Museum, which spirals up the various floors of the tower towards the top, where visitors can go to the open-air balcony and look down on the city below. The photo tax in the museum was silly, but I can tell you that the exhibits were simple and on subjects such as handicrafts, clocks and furniture. The fourth floor lets you look at the inner workings of the giant clock and its marionettes (it's worth the price of admission for this alone), while the fifth floor really does offer some spectacular panoramic views. Closed on Mondays.

Address: Piata Muzeului 1
Directions: Historic center.
