Attraction details
Type: Lookouts, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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 and mini-zoo. Only in restaurant Diana you can eat surrounded by spa forests while watching our peacocks. Only from look-out tower Diana you can take perfect photos of whole Karlovy Vary. Only in our mini-zoo you can caress just a few days old animals - if you come in right time ;-) 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!

The Diana Tower located on the hill in the forest behind Grandhotel Pupp. You can reach the tower by walking along forest trails or by the funicular. We took one way ticket to reach to the hill near tower and we went back by walk. It was very nice.

We had heard this was the most frequented tourist destination in Karlovy Vary and we understood why. The views are just phenomenal. There are 2 ways one can reach this, either through funicular rail or via a long steep trek. We decided to take the funicular rail while ascending and then could trek down. Once we reached the top i.e.... More

A nice view from the tower. We hiked up, then took the cog railway down. There is a tiny zoo behind the restaurant, too. The restaurant itself was too crowded, and we didn't want to wait for a table, so there isn't much I can say.

It's not really much architecturally, but you get great views of the forest and surround Karlovy Vary.

Away from whatever crowds Karlovy Vary could ever have, this fun ride up the hill to a lookout tower with gorgeous views followed by a special drink or food in the neighboring restaurant. Must do it all.

This is one of the best trips you can make in Karlovy Vary. Take the cable car from Pupp Hotel, eat in the restaurant on the top of the hill, look at the mini-zoo behind and then climb the tower (or take the elevator!). For small price you get wonderful views on the city and surroundings. And you can take... More

The ride up and down on the funicular was interesting. The views from the top of the tower were quite good. The mini-zoo was quite fun, with peacocks, ponies , baby goats and pigs. Not worth doing on a foggy day, and not worth attempting if you are afraid of heights, but if you have a spare couple of hours,... More

In general it was pretty good, but we didn't see the city from tower because of fog. And also the microscope didn't work.
