It is a great place! My favourite in Prague. Famouse city views city can be seen from the hill. But i like it most because itself:cozy stone paved roads with lamps, free walking hares, hedgehogs, statues, rose garden. You can also vist The Petřín Lookout Tower on the top of the hill.

Try to go by foot, takes ca 20 min. Beautiful view not only from tower, there is good places on hill. Take with you sandwiches and beer to make a picnic. Before buying ticket think if you like to visit maze and other things: joint ticket will be cheaper.

Great views at the top. The area of the gardens of the Petrin Hill consists of a number of gardens and orchards of various origins.

Think I was the only one suffering from serious vertigo tho! Children were fine, but the wind, gentle swaying at the top and exposed feeling on the staircase brought on the fear of heights. Fabulous views and I enjoyed the walky circling up past the caste and was liking back down the other side.

Take the Funicular Railway if you already have a transportation ticket this can be used here or buy a ticket here.Halfway up is the first stop which has a Restaurant.Keep going up to the top and spend time in the fantastic rose gardens which has plenty of seating.You can explore the rest of this amazing and well kept park

I suggest going up via foot instead of the tram. Nice view during sunset but ugly during the day due to overcrowded building scenery. Would recommended a visit!

I took the furnicular up from Ujezd in the Lesser Town (about 2pm, the queue was about a 1 hour wait). When you finally get in to where you can get tickets, you should go to the shop window if you don't have coins as the ticket machines only take coins. But there is no sign telling you to do... More

At some point in our assault on Prague's walks, we felt the need to escape the often crowded streets of the city and opened our arms to refreshing strolls through greenery and open spaces. There is no better place within the city, than Petrin Hill (pronounced pet-cheen), a verdant retreat accessed easily from the Mala Strana. Its one large park... More

We walked around in the park for a little while and went to the top of the tower. Totally worth the small cost and climb (299 steps) to see the amazing view over Prague.
