Definitely worth the 300-step climb to see the amazing view of Prague. By the way, there is an elevator as well if you prefer.

We have had some difficulty trying to figure out how to get an overview of Prague, with its sprawling Old Town, New Town, Lesser Town, and outlying towns, all of which have incredibly numerous and worthwhile cultural attractions, hundreds in fact, according to some travel websites. There are guided walking tours, hop on and off bus tours, boat tours, city... More

Walked to the Petrin Tower from the castle through Petrin Park. It took well over 30 minutes but was a nice relaxed way to spend time on a hot day. The tower has stairs or a lift. It has nice views including over the whole of Prague and well worth visiting. There are swings etc for children in the park... More

It would have been perfect if the elevator didn't cost extra, so actually it got a bit pricey, but it was interesting to see the old town from the top of the tower.

Climbing the 299 steps is well worth the breathtaking views of the city! Took the tram to the top of the hill and walked through the amazing gardens to get to the tower. Seemed a little cheesy before I went, but it was worth it. Go at dusk to get beautiful day, dusk, and evening views of the city.

I suffer from labyrinthitis and am scared of heights but I had to climb the tower to experience the amazing views. I would stringly suggest that, if like me, you are at all nervous of heights that you take the lift to the first level. The journey up the stairs got quite scary because people were coming down the wrong... More

Walked to the Petrin Tower after visiting Prague Castles. Long walk but well worth it in the end. Cheap entry fee, great hike up the tower! Lots of steps but there are seats every so often for people like me who get tired after like 20 steps! Once you're at the top, you'll be greeted by stunning views. But one... More

For a great view of the city and the surrounding area, a visit to the Petrin Tower is most excellent. The Funicular train that goes the hill to the tower is part of public transit, so if you purchase a daily pass the ride is free. There are no sales people so make sure you bring coins to but your...

Petrin Tower is located at the top of the Petrin hill. You can walk to this atraction by walk or you can go by cableway (the ticket costs 25 CZK). The tower itself has no elevator so you have to go by walk. Once you are on top you have a beautiful view. I like this place and recommend. The... More

This was one of many highlights during my trip to Prague! I definitely recommend a visit here but after you've had a chance to look around and get your bearings of the area. It was so rewarding to be able to recognise the sights that you can see from this tower. There are two methods of going up the tower.... More
