We were lucky the day we decided to go there was a clear blue sky. Steps up were fine didn't bother with the elevator. Fantastic views of the city. it does sway a bit at the top! The funicular going to the tower was fun can get very busy so better to do early.

Petrin Hill is a lovely park with superb views of the city below. It also has a tower modelled on the Eiffel Tower, which can also be accessed for additional views of Prague. To get to the top of Petrin Hill you can either walk or take the Funicular Railway. We took the latter option and were able to use... More

This park is one of my favorites I've ever been to. I wanted to go to the lookout tower (the one that looks like a miniature Eiffel Tower), so we walked from our hotel nearby. We started on a flat asphalt trail that overlooked all of Prague- the view, partially framed by blossoming trees, was breathtaking. As we kept walking,... More

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.
