If you're looking to get a bit of exercise (to work off all those Pilsners) and you want the best photos of Prague Petrin tower is a GREAT half-day excursion. We hiked up to the tower from the Charles Bridge and it was well worth it. Then on top of the ridge, we climbed up the tower and took LOADS... More

The place is very convenient to start exploring the Strahov Monastery and Prague Castle/ Vite Cathedral. You should go by the cable car (24 Crowns per ticket) and the Cable Car will take you to the top of the hill with magnificent views over Prague. You should spend some time enjoying your views and then proceed in the vicinity of... More

It is a long way upstairs (or you can take the elevator up and down), but the 360 degrees view is worth the effort if you have visited the city's main attractions. The park where it is located is also quite pleasant.

The whole charm of the Petrin Tower for me was not the tower itself, but the walk you take to get there and then, when you arrive, the grounds that the tower is set in. We took the walk from Prague Castle and it possibly took us a good half an hour from there. In the stifling heat with sandals... More

If you don't mind a few stairs to get an amazing view of the city then this is a must do! There is also a lift available for a little bit extra but climbing the stairs is part of the experience! You will see 360 degree views of the city as surrounds which is absolutely breathtaking and well worth the... More

Corny, yes. Great view, yes! I'm a sucker for a great view and this tower delivers. And very reasonably priced. Climb those stairs!

The Petrin Tower experience is a nice memory. It all starts with a climb up the hill, but if you're willing to buy a ticket (24czk) or have a valid ticket from public transport you can get up the hill with a tram. The tram is small and cute and worth a ride if you're not too frugal. At the... More

The tower is in a huge park that is like an oasis in the middle of the city; lovely gardens, lush stands of trees, lots of green space, and play areas for kids. It is a very popular destination for local families. We took the funicular up the hill to the tower, and had a great view of the area... More

Bit of a climb to get to the tower. Didn't enjoy the climb up the tower, felt a bit open. It's worth it though for the spectacular views from the top! Returned via the funicular which was fun and quite inexpensive.

Climbing the 299 steps can be tiring but there are frequent rest areas and a mid-level plateau; a lift is available to top of tower for an extra fee. The views of the surrounding areas are unparalleled so definitely worth the nominal fee if you don’t mind the climb. As the Tower does not accept credit cards for the entrance... More
