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

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 location, on top of the funicular ride. We had Goulash soup, it was good and inexpensive (90 Ks) Surrounded by a beautiful forest with nice views overlooking Carlsbad 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.

Just at the side of the grand pupp hotel there is a funicular ride up the side of the cliff, you can walk up but it is steep and funicular wasn't expensive, there is a road up as well as there were cars parked.. Up at the top there are walks and also the tower which has great views all... More

Must see if you have few hrs to spare. Can go up by funicular, and walk back. The views from top is simply breath taking. It's usually windy on the top of the tower. Take a jacket. There is a nice restaurant serving local dishes, beer and deserts. There is a small gift shop, and a mini zoo with few... More

We were in KV in February, so much of the forest 'green' was absent, but worth a trip up the Diana Lookout Tower to see the town of Karlovy Vary and surrounding area. You can easily catch the tram or walk up/down. Access from the town main thorough fair is near /behind the Grandpupp Hotel. Ideal starting point to get... More

Work off all the rich meals by a walk in the woods above Karlovy Vary. Paths are well established but some lack good marking.

Even if it is a little laid off, but must see. So whatever you do, just go and visit it. I would suggest to take tram up, but down you should take a walk through the forest walkway.
