The Cathedral Tower was opened revealing some of its secrets to the public in 2015. As part of the magnificent late-baroque reconstruction in 1710 – 1732 the Tower was heightened, so Bishop Erdödy could place there the Cathedral Library. It formed the basis for the present Diocesan Library, transferred to the so-called Large Seminary in the Upper Town in the19th century. However the precious furniture, bookshelves and tables remained in its place and used as a study room. Visitors today can enjoy picturesque views from the Balustrade, restored in 2014.

In October, the Cathedral Tower is opened for visitors on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00-18:00 and only in case of favourable weather conditions.
