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!

The tower features view not only on the Karlovy Vary, but also on the surrounding forests and hills. It is best to take the cable car from the bottom of the mountain and after visiting the tower, stroll down through the forest (you can then go and see Jeleni skok). The trip would make interesting two hours.

Near the top station of the Karlovy Vary funicular, this wonderful tower has astonishing views over Karlovy Vary and over the beautiful wooded hills to the west of Karlovy Vary. There's a lift to the top, but f you're feeling energetic you can climb the stairs, watching the view slowly expand as you climb.

We've walked up to here several times as we live close by. There are many ways to come up through the beautiful woodland, with plenty of ornate shelters to investigate. The restaurant at the top is good for a drink or traditional Czech food (and can get very busy). The views from the tower are good, and it's free to... More

The funicular that takes you to the lookout tower is closed in winter so you have to walk up. It is better to take a walk from the southern part of the town through the various outlook towers nearby as the path around the funicular is quite steep and all the way uphill. There is a lift going up the... More

Dear Madam, thank you for your review. Diana tourist complex is not closed for winter, but just for 12-19 days during January or February. We have to obey the law of our goverment which says, that every year we are obligated to check the safety of our funicular service (incl. breaks try-out, cable test...). Every year, we use this ´testing... More

The Diana Tower located on the hill in the forest behind Grandhotel Pupp. You can reach the tower by walking along forest trails or by the funicular. We took one way ticket to reach to the hill near tower and we went back by walk. It was very nice.

We had heard this was the most frequented tourist destination in Karlovy Vary and we understood why. The views are just phenomenal. There are 2 ways one can reach this, either through funicular rail or via a long steep trek. We decided to take the funicular rail while ascending and then could trek down. Once we reached the top i.e.... More

A nice view from the tower. We hiked up, then took the cog railway down. There is a tiny zoo behind the restaurant, too. The restaurant itself was too crowded, and we didn't want to wait for a table, so there isn't much I can say.

It's not really much architecturally, but you get great views of the forest and surround Karlovy Vary.
