This was one of the repeatable highlights of our 45 days in Prague. From the first time we went up the funicular to our second last day when we strolled down the meandering pathway, I truly wish I could have asked my wife to marry me at the restaurant halfway up the hill overlooking the castle and Charles Bridge.

Went late in today, no queues to get in. Went up the stairs (there is a lift running up the centre but it looked a little claustrophobic!). There are places to stop and get your breath on the way up including a first floor viewing platform. Views at the top are really good although everywhere is enclosed in glass windows... More

We decided to get the finicular railway up to see the views from the top, the signs when purchasing tickets are not very clear and so we asked a ticket inspector at the bottom for help, he said it would 24 ck and would give us half an hour at the top. We presumed this was half an hour between... More

Went on a day when it was cloudy but still worth the view. Don t use the lift as you will not be able to use the 1st level. Wobbles a bit in the breeze but nothing to worry about. One word of warning though , the hot chocolate is like like treacle and needs a spoon

Beware of the ticket inspectors. Made an honest mistake and validated the same ticket twice instead of the new one I had just bought. Explain my situation when I got off and showed both of the tickets and I was threatened by them, telling me they were going to call the police

Its a green Hill. You can get there by a some kind of cable car. The travel is about 3minutes and the tickets are the same like for public transport. Uphill there are several atractions like: mini Eiffel Tower, Mirror maze etc. For the Eiffel Tower you must buy ticket, and Pay extra if you want go by elevator. We... More

This is a super little park on a nice day. We walked up from the castle area and through from the monastery, which was a little muddy, so wear sensible shoes. I wouldn't recommend if you're not surefooted, as some particularly steep bits. Really well presented footpaths once inside the park, though. We also came back this way at around... More

After a lovely walk up the hill we decided to take the funicular railway down. Make sure after you buy your ticket you get it stamped. We ended up with a £50 fine after being stopped by an unfriendly and aggressive security man. This was our first trip to Prague and we were unaware, there are no barriers and no... More

Do it the easy way and get the (absurdly cheap) funicular railway to the top of Petrin Hill. Stroll downhill through the peaceful woods enjoying stunning views across the city, as you wend your way towards Strahov Monastery with its on site brewery and magnificent libraries. Before you head downhill, though, wander past the observation tower, church of St Lawrence... More
