Starting on the Funicular and Making Your Way Up the Hill Can Not Prepare You for the Sights You Will See!!! Climbing the Winding Stairs of the Mini Eiffel Tower is Not Only a Great Workout but the Pot-of-Gold at the End of the Rainbow!!! The Sights High Above are Absolutely Breathtaking!!! Words Can Not Describe!!! The Gardens...Monasteries...and Churches are... More

The best way to take a look on the beautiful city of Prague. The stairs of the tower are not preparing you to the great view. It is like a mistory tour the the views of pruage. The beautiful gardens under the tower make the trip to be a pastoral and make it to be a perfect picture.

You can take a tram up Petrin hill, but we opted to do the climb. It's not too bad, but a series of steps. We wondered around once we were up there looking for a look-out point to get some good views of Prague and couldn't find any. Everything was blocked by trees. Finally we found someone to ask and...

We decided to cycle around city and also went to Petrin hill by bike. Not good idea to cycle Petrin hill as it is very stiff for cycling (for beginners of course). But then it is even better to walk with bike and experience great views of lovely Prague. On the way back you are in city in 5 minutes... More

The walk is hilly but easily walkable! The views were superb and worth every step Went to a little cafe half way up the hill with cheap food and drink. (18ck for a hot dog - 30ck for a milkshake) which has great views and less tourists and quieter

The view is stunning - aim to go at the time of sunset for the best vista! Don't be alarmed by the seemingly daunting walk, it takes only around 20 minutes. For the best view, though, you need to fork out a few euro and head up the observation tower.

The view was great. I arrived at the tower after walking up the hill. It was hot and was almost noon. I went up the stairs but I wish I had gone through the elevator (you would have to pay extra). The stairs weren't that bad but I took some time going up while I was in a rush. Took... More

The Petrin Hill is a good place to have a walk on as it has a few gardens, there is the Petrin tower as well (copy after the Eiffel Tower), there is a mind maze and a church. As you're up on a hill, you also have a great view over Prague. You can get on the hill either by... More

Love Petrin Hill, might cost you a few quid if you let it but the fruit, the views , the scenery is all free. Makes a fresh change from the bars and good to enjoy the air. If nothing else the Maze is just out of this world, i mean really it is one of Europes must see attractions. Thankfully... More

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.
