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, butterfly house and mini-zoo. Only in restaurant Diana you can eat surrounded by spa forests while watching our peacocks. From the look-out tower Diana you can take perfect photos of whole Karlovy Vary and surroundings. The butterfly house is a perfect goal of your trip in all weathers. 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!

Karlovy Vary is a very hilly town, allowing for easy access to hiking. The Diana Lookout Tower gives some amazing views and is well worth the hike. Alternatively, there is a cable-car (funicular) that gives a quick ride to the top. I did a one-way up the funicular and hiked down.

This was the highlight of my time in Karlovy Vary. We took the funicular up and then had the most beautiful walk down. Whilst we were at the top we climbed to the top of the tower and had a beautiful 360 degree view of the surrounding area. It is absolutely beautiful and well worth the 100 odd stairs (there... More

A must see - excellent views from the top. Right before PUPP HOTEL take the small street and you get to funicular that takes you up (2nd stop). Climb the tower (100 stairs up and 100 down or takr the elevator).. Excellent views on Karlovy vary- you can make good photos. On the way back take a walk- 20 min... More

He view from the lookout is absolutely beautiful and I was greatly surprised. We bought round trip funicular tickets, but ended up walking back down. It's a very short trek, but is doesn't offer much view other than a luxurious forest.

Nice tram to high elevation to observe the Karlovy Vary region. It is worth the cost and time. When you get to the top go on up the tower via the elevator and walk around to get the entire view of the area

There is funicular to get up on the hill, the down station is behind Hotel Pupp. We did not use it, because the path to up was good and not hard at all. It is free to visit the tower. 150 steps up, but elevator available.

Diana Tower gives such lovely view of the surroundings. Best part - there's an elevator to bring you up instead of climbing the stairs! - Trust me, after endless steps up many towers - this is a nice treat. Take the furnicular up and walk down for the view.

The trip to the top was a hike, but the views over the surrounding countryside were well worth it. the town is spread out below in perfect detail
