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!

Great place to visit.

Beautiful city, beautiful nature, and a beautiful view, Karlovy Vary have so much to offer, and don't forget to take a health bath while you are there.

Unfortunately in February 2015 the towe and tram was closed. Anyway, it was a nice place to visit, as we walked only 15-20 minutes and were over downtown. Once you are on the top, you can easily get to other parts of Karlove vary by easy walking forest roads.

So many paths which cross cross and end up here. The walks are gentle and provide great views and a lovely forest with the odd glimpse of wildlife!Great views across the city... A must!

My favourite place to see the whole city and the suburbian on the hill where just green you can see. Its free of charge to climb up or use the elevator. Use the funicular to go up and down you can walk easily and choose one of many pedestrian routes and interesting stops to rest.

We wanted to.take the fonicula to the tower, however it was closed so we decided to walk. The walk is beautiful, the forest is amasing and i guess i am happy the fonicula was closed. When we got to the tower it was closed however you can still enjoy the view. The walk back was as lovely as the walk... More

This is a nice walk and the views at the top are sensational, the restaurant though is really disappointing.

We were chatting with some of the staff at our Hotel about things to do an our server mentioned how close we were to the funicular that takes you all the way to the top to this historical tower overlooking the entire Karolvy Vary valley. The views from the tower (all elevator access thank goodness) were spectacular. I recommend the... More

it is definitely a must see place in Karlovy Vary. You can walk down the stara louka (old street), towards Grand hotel Pupp. There is option to take mountain rail up or down or return trip, or simply start yoir day with mountain tracking. We took the rail up, and walked down from Diana lookout tower, to Deer jump. Unfortunately... More

We took up the mountain on our last few hours in Kalovy Vary. We were too early for the restaurant but the quick trip up to the top was well worth it. Beautiful views from the tower. Just a really cool experience!
