Diana is perhaps the most popular tourist attraction in Karlovy Vary. Take the funicular from colonnade street to get direct to this beautiful place incl. best famous look-out tower, 100 y. old restaurant, forest terrace, butterfly house and mini-zoo. Only in restaurant Diana you can eat surrounded by spa forests while watching our peacocks. From the look-out tower Diana you can take perfect photos of whole Karlovy Vary and surroundings. The butterfly house is a perfect goal of your trip in all weathers. On winter warm up by large fireplace in our historical restaurant, on summer surely use walking paths through the spa forests which starts right from our place. Visiting the "Tourist area Diana" will be nice and relaxing part of your trip to Karlovy Vary and you can come all year long. You didn´t see Karlovy Vary if you werent´t at Diana!

Very nice view but pretty pricey!

It was £8 for the both of us to go up and back down on the little train. I know in the UK that's not a lot of money but when you can get a pint of good lager for £1.00 it is quite... read more

We did not take any lunch or coffee at the cafeteria/restaurant, so can only give my opinion on the view. Very nice.

Took the funicular up to the top and walked the 150 steps to the top. Views are breathtaking of Karlovy Vary and the surrounding countryside. We decided to walk down which was more challenging than we expected with only trails to follow through the forest but we all got down safely

Good views, not that much to do up on the hill though. For kids there's a petting zoo with about 1.5 animals... We were there with 2 kids and 2 strollers but would be good to take the train there and come down on foot!

Views from here are amazing. And the hikes in the forests all around are beautiful. Free maps of all hikes from tourist office and are very well signposted.

This attraction on the hill overlooking Karlovy vary is free to climb the steps (or take the lift) and provides you with great vistas across the city, the forest and towards the Czech mountains. At the foot of the tower is a petting farm and newly opened butterfly farm (for a small fee) and drinks and food are available. You... More

This was such a fun place. The view of the city was so spectacular. After we had a great meal .....and watched the peacocks who came right up to the window, we visited a small animal zoo there on the grounds. This is definitely a must go to place.

You catch the cable car to the top, look at the beautful views, visit the butterfly room, have an icecream or eat lunch the catch the cable car back down or hike down (we didn't hike) . It was a nice afternoon. Nothing to blow you away though
