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!

We took the vernacular up to the top and had a wonderful view of the town. We decided to have lunch at the restaurant Diana. The waitstaff was wonderful and the food was very tasty. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable lunch. After lunch we went up to the lookout tower and took some pictures.

Worth to visit this lookout when in KV for sure. On top of a hill, where you can either walk or take a ride by canle car. We have visited this tower on a nice sunny day and we were able to see far away :-) Once you there do not forget to visit mini zoo and Buterfly House -... More

The title pretty much says it: you ascend the hill by cable car ( 80 Czech Karuna) and then to the top of the lookout tower ( I think there was a nominal fee) for beautiful views of KV. I highly recommend!

We went up the side and around the back of the hotel Pupp to get excess to the trail leading up to the Diana tower. It was steep in places, you would need walking shoes or trainers. You can stop and admire the views on the way up. !!!!!!!!! once up the tower you will be pleased that you had... More

It is a place really worth seeing! We liked hiking there but it's good for lazy people too because they can use furnicular to get to the top. The view is really beautiful from the lookout tower. You can admire Karlove Vary and all surrounding hills. You can buy good food or drinks at the restaurant next to tower. There... More

This was worth the trip up the funicular to get the views. It is great as there is also a lift in the tower so if you have trouble with steps you have an alternative. It is definitely worth the hour or so to have the panoramic view of Karlovy Vary and the area. Even though you pay for the... More

Right across the Hotel Quisisana, to the right of the Grand Hotel Pupp is a very small alley way that leads to the cable car which takes you to the Diana Lookout Tower. The cable car runs every 15 minutes and only costs 80 Krona. There is a restaurant right at the tower. I didn't try it. There is an... More

This is lovely place to see. It takes about 25 minutes to get there by walking from Grandhotel Pupp (you can take the cable car). I really recommend the trail - it's not hard (even children can do it), there is a lot of beautiful stops with view, you can just breathe the fresh air and relax. Lookout tower is... More

We took the cable car up. Not that much to see at the top. View from the tower was quite good. I climbed the 150 stairs but there is an elevator for those who are unwilling or unable. We walked back down the mountain. The path can be slippery and steep in places so wear sensible walking shoes. No signage... More

On top of the hill Diana lookout tower affords panoramic view of Karlovy Vary valley, surrounding hills and forests. Several marked hiking trails lead up to it or use the cute Diana funicular (elevator to top of the tower add-l). Diana restaurant serves drinks, snacks or meals in high ceiling-ed halls or just use the WC (CZK 5). Tiny enclosure... More
