Instead of using the funicular, we just walked through the many tracks going up hill, with a nice green area, a beautiful view of the city in a calm and peaceful walk. There are some gardens with tenths of different roses and aromatic flowers, rewarding anyone who went there. Climbing the tower (or taking the elevator, which is charged) will... More

We decided to walk up, a mistake if you tire easily . It's beautiful though and we'll worth the effort and lots of benches on the way . With paths going all over some easy and some straight up , it's up to you how you get to the top. And of cause you could always get on the little... More

We visited Petrin Hill and purchased the tickets for the Observation Tower. This is a great place to get away from the crowds and get a magnificent view of Prague. You have two options of getting to the Observation Tower, either by walking or taking the Funicular located at the base of Petrin Hill. If you have a public transportation... More

A ride up the funicular, a mini Eiffel Tower, Mirror Maze and Astronomical Observatory. Spent 3/4 hours here, nice gardens too, great views of the city wasn't too crowded in the morning [around 9.00] when we were there. Suspect later on would be pretty busy.

I really enjoyed the place! They even have some nice souvenirs over there. If you are looking for a long walk you should explore the park also! They have two places to take pictures, the bigger place it's the first one.

start at the hunger wall when you want to go to the petrin hill. I would recommend to walk up from here to the wooden church. From the wooden church you can walk by de stone wall and walk further up to the rose garden and from there the petrin tower. here you can have a wonderful view over Prague.... More

It's a hill in the city center, but o the other side of the river, so the view to the city is breathtaking. it's big and quiet, there are silent corners to "hide" in. It's very beautiful and well maintained. There is The Petřín tower, which was built just after the Eiffel tower and is a small copy of it... More

We walked all around this park, and also travelled on the little railway. Great photo opportunities and there are a couple of places to stop and have a drink

I enjoyed my time at Petrin Hill last month. Taking the funicular up from the Little Quarter, I walked around a lovely terrace area and hillside park. I then took the funicular up to the top of Petrin Hill and I then headed out to the "mini Eiffel Tower," where after you climb up the steps to the top observation... More

We visited Prague in a very very hot september so we were well in need of a nice shade provided by a park, preferably. Petrin Hill provides both comfortable shade and sunny hillside, so it's your call whether you'd rather sit on the sunny part and watch Prague bustle go on (good view of Lesser Side, New Town etc.), listen...
