Attraction details
Type: Lookouts, 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!

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.

The lady who is working in the ticket office is not nice. However, it is her problem, don' t be upset as her unfriendly. If having enough time, go there to have a cup of hot chocolate in a cafe as there are 2 lovely peacocks near the window.

This was a great free attraction to visit in Karlovy Vary. We did pay to take the funicular to the top of the hill, but to climb the tower itself was free. Unfortunately the day we visited, it was a little foggy, but it was still worth the climb to the top and to see the views of the city.

This was on the list of things to in KV so we headed straight for it. The funicular was fun if a little rickety and came every 15 mins. It did however take us straight up the hill and in no time we had reached the tower, a folly built as part of movement to create a permanent viewpoint. The... More

If I were to do it over, I would walk up, but we didn't know where to catch the trail....Walk like you are going to catch the funicular, as you reach the funicular steps, look to your left, there are some stairs there, follow blue/white markings on trees and arrows to Diana lookout, It's a nice easy hike up and...
