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! « less

Well, it's a regular view point with a watch. The advantage is, that you can get there with a funicular from the spa district of Karlovy Vary. The view on the city and surrounding forests is worth... viewing.

The forest landscape on the downward hike is absolutely beautiful, with frequent lookouts over Karlovy Vary...Also there is a restaurant at top -- great atmosphere, and a restaurant at mid point - Jeleni Skok-- again, fabulous views over the city and surrounding area!

It is located to the right of the Hotel Pupp. It is worth the fare to go up the tram to the top to see the valley. Make sure you go up the tower to get the best views.

Walking there is possible (30min), but sometimes the hill is steep and I wouldn't walk there with small children, also there are many ways to get there which is a bit puzzling. Anyway the funicular is cheap (something like 95.- for round trip. The view in the tower is very nice. The restaurant there is really bad, you will find... More

You can get here by walking to the end of the main pedestrian area in Karlovy Vary and taking the funicular railway to the the top. You need to take the little road on the right before you come the pupp hotel to get to the railway. It is not well signposted. It is worth visiting though for the view.

Karlovy Vary is a legendary place. The streets, the shops, the warm water flowing naturally. There's no doubt, K-Vary has it's magic. If you arrived here, you cannot skip the Diana Lookout Tower. It is located almost at the end of the main walking promenade. There are two ways to get up to the tower: 1. The somewhat small funicular... More

I think 150 stairs to climb, but it was worth it. Up with the funiculaire and down by foot is what you should do, if you want to do it the easy way. On the way down you should pass by the "deer jump" which, although nothing too spectacular, is one of the landmarks of this town.

Nice silent area up the town with far views from the lookout tower. Small zoo behind the restaurant. We took the cable car in both direction (visited with small child), but would try the walk down, takes 1-1,5 hours. Cable car tickets only for cash.
