Good evening Kaptain Kenny readers,
Let’s have a look at St Mary’s Church and whether or not it’s worth the climb: Trip Advisor Reviews
- First of all, I’d like to say that the climb will set you back about 90 EUR cents. It’s not going to break the bank whether you enjoy the climb or not.
- Many European cathedral climbs which I’ve done have been dark, squished and insanely tight during the entire journey up and down but THIS church is fabulously designed. There’s traffic for the way up and traffic for the way down. For those who struggle with tight spaces, you’ll only have a bit of that at the very beginning but the rest will be smooth sailing.
- They didn’t seem to police how many people were allowed on the top viewing platform. For me, this was the major downer as I was squished in amongst every tourist imaginable. As you can see from my photos, it wasn’t always easy to get a photo of the old town directly below because of the barriers. For that reason, I’d say that it’s not suitable if you want to take beautifully aligned and perfect shots.
- Still, a bit of exercise never goes astray and it was certainly lovely to take in a whiff of fresh air at the top & marvel at the views before my flight back to Germany.
