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.

Prague is really beautiful and if you like to see the entire Prague in one blick, Petrin Hill is the Place to be. Once in a Trade fair, Czech architects saw Eiffel Tower in Paris and thought of building one similar in Prague. So, they built a 5 times smaller version of Eiffel Tower (Paris) but on higher sea-level than... More

First if you want to get to petrin tower without using the public transports you need to do a long walk uphill. From the castle it will take one hour walking until you get to the top, its better to use the funicular, it only costs 24czk to go up. Once you reach the tower you need to pay if... More

If you are here on a weekend break, I’d definitely advise using the funicular, the hill is very steep and you will probably want to get up there to see the view with minimum energy loss! You can use the tram/bus tickets on the funicular, I’d advise getting one of those before you go as there was a queue and... More

We came here last February in the snow and it was beautiful. We decided to come back again in the summer and the view was still as stunning. If you have a 3 day travel pass you can use it on the funicular. There is a restaurant half way up which it stops at. This is a good chance to... More
