We chose to walk from old town, cross the river near the Hotel Intercontinental (Checuv Most) and walk up the stairs to the Prague Metronome where we were greated with a fantastic view over Prague following the line of the river and its bridges. From there we continued to talk to the Hanavsky Pavillin for more views and onto the... More

i enjoyed travelling with the funicular and the best thing is that the public transport ticket is also valid here,so you don't have to pay anymore or wait in the queue. We got up in the Tower and had nice photos from there.Here is also a museum called Mirror Maze,whic is really fun!

Great place to spend a couple of hours particularly if children are old enough to climb tower. Great views of city. Getting there up steep slope on a type of cable tram is good and kids enjoy for a nominal charge. If you have an all day transport ticket it covers it. Can also just walk up. Beside it is... More

We visited Petrine Park in the winter after spending some time at the nearby Strahov Monastery. Even in mid-winter the park is a lively place with great views of the Old Town and New Town in Prague. If you climb the tower you'll see the entire area. It's probably wonderful in the summer.

I really loved the place. Even tho I was visiting it late September and the famous rose garden was some what dead, but the whole hill was still more than alive! Not forget the Petrin tower which was as tall as always. Personally I would rate it better than Prague Castle if you like nature over old buildings!

Its a long walk up through the gardens but you can also take the funicular all the way up. Once your up at the top the views are spectacular. It was a foggy cold day when we went but still with all the fog it was amazing. If you are brave enough to go to the top of Petrin Tower... More

Left Petrin tower and decided to walk back towards charles bridge through Petrin hill. Views are spectacular. Very relaxing, tranquil and beautiful scenic walks of course all free of charge. Would highly recommend for anyone that enjoys walking to come to Petrin hill, it's very special.

Lots to see and do, we walked from the strahov monastery and went up petrin tower with amazing view (think mini eiffel tower) walk up for proper experience. Can see the largest stadium in the world just a few hundred metres away. The park has lots of paths and a few cafe sheds, can walk through and relax

We almost made the mistake of trying to walk up in the cold until we saw the funicular. The funicular is the easier way up, but to go up the lookout tour, you needed to pay, which we didn't want to. But I guess in winter there's probably nothing much to see unless you are willing to go up the... More
