If you enjoy active sightseeing and are not afraid of the height then this tower will be a decent spot to visit. The view is quite enjoyable because of the height - the tower itself is of quite a height and is located on the hilly side of Prague. I reckon it's really freakin lovely with some better weather than... More

We took the funicular to the top and then climbed the tower - stunning views over the old town, castle and Charles Bridge (we did have very good weather when we were there). It's a lovely park to walk through with views all around. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and the park was full of families strolling around.... More

When we were in Prague the weather was beautiful which made this trip even more incredible. We decided to walk up the hill through the park to get to the tower which I would definitely recommend doing on a lovely day as it is a pleasant walk with some great views of the city and the park itself is lovely....

The view for the hill, and the tower itself, is worth the visit. The overall expense of the funicular and entry tickets is ~25euro per a family of 4 and worth it. The mirror maze is worth especially for the one which makes you look thinner - very good for women as i have learnt. Maybe it is worth to... More

Take the tram to Ujezd and go climb the tower, you will enjoy the views!! There is an elevator if the walk up is not for you.

The tower was very simple.. 7 min walk up the stairs see the view and straight back down, not breathtaking.. But the mirror maze was awful takes approx 2 mins max! And is awful.

Worth the visit and worth paying to go to the top of the tower (warning - it sways very very slightly so we didn't stay there for long). We walked back to the Charles Bridge via the park and through the lovely picturesque cobbled streets which was a lovely way to see the less touristy parts of Prague. Good way... More

We chose to take the walking trail to the tower, but there is also a train. The views along the trail are beautiful. We stopped several times to take photos. You can go to the top of the tower for spectacular views of the city. I highly recommend seeing the bird's eye view of the city. We went during the... More

Petrin Hill is well worth a visit. You can either get the lift or the stairs but it is certainly well worth the climb for the incredible view at the top. Definitely recommend you visit Pretrin Hill whilst in Prague. There is a cafe at the tower and a gift shop. Also, there is a mirror maze which is about... More
