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

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...

One of the most beautiful places in Karlovy Vary. Don´t forget the funicular for the ascent, and the beautiful paths into the forest for the descent.

This is reached by a funicular. You have the option of round trip or one way -- there are a number of hiking paths, so you can choose to walk down. When you reach the tower, there is an elevator to take you to the top. The view is gorgeous, and definitely worth the trip.

Very nice place to walk and breath the clean air. It’s a park but you will thing that you are in huge forest with many walking paths. View from above is amazing. There is also a restaurant but we have not visited it. If you are visiting Karlovy Vary for sure you will visit this place.

Some superb views. A decent restaurant, not too extensive, but good honest food. We took our meal inside, it was September, near a roaring log fire. Quite a treat.

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.
