The Petrin Tower was at the top of my to-do-list. We decided to take the walk to the top of the hill but there is transport available if you'd rather not trek up the picturesque hill. The tower itself isn't that exciting but the views from the observation platforms are incredible.

It takes a little effort to get to the funicular to go up Petrin Hill to get to Petrin Tower, but it is worth it. You use the same transportation tickets that you use for the tram or metro or buses on the funicular. There is an elevator for the Petrin Tower which we used to get up, and then... More

Great view from the tower, and a nice walk from Charles bridge. If you are in normal shape, walk all the way and use the stairs.

Nice view, about 20 stories. I'm lazy, though, & paid the extra $4 US (tacked on to the family ticket) to ride the elevator. The ticket booths for the Tower and other Petrin Hill exhibits do not accept Euro or credit cards (I had, admittedly, become a bit spoiled by Prague merchants pretty universally accepting Euro). Thankfully one of the... More

Really good tower - nice and high, with spectacular views over the city and the park. Well worth the trip up - but dont bother with the mirror maze next door unless you have small children - it's very overpriced

If you like taking panoramic pictures then this is simply the spot to be in Prague! Awesome views of all the city centre with the castle, the Charles bridge and the rest of the historic area. It can get quite packed at the top especially if you go there at the golden hours :-) You can always take your shots... More

The view from the top of the tower is the best I saw, and miles better than the view from Prague Castle (Pražský hrad). Well worth the 120CZK (approx £4 GBP) that it cost when I visited. However it is not recommended if you have a fear of heights, particularly as the top of the tower feels noticeably wobbly, and... More

We really enjoyed the views from both the mid platform and the top of Petrin Tower. However, if you're a little wobbly on your legs I wouldn't recommend the climb up & down all the steps. I didn't count the steps but there were a lot. My legs were definitely worse on the way down. The other problem I had... More

We set aside an afternoon to make the trip to the Petrin Hill. We walked from our hotel to the funicular that takes you to the top. We wandered around for a little while and took some pictures. Wish that our visit was during the summer months because the gardens looked like they would be beautiful in season. Next we... More
