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

We climbed Petrin Hill after visiting Prague Castle. The hike up the hill was lovely and provided some wonderful views and provided some shade in the trees (it was a very hot day). The sole purpose of visiting was for Petrin Tower, when purchasing tickets you can get cheaper tickets if you walk up the stairs, or pay extra to... More

After hiking to the top of Prague the last thing you expect is to have to pay for the pleasure of walking up more steps. It's not overly expensive and the views are spectacular! It's just that if they cut a gap in the trees you would have the same view for free... would have been cheaper for them too!

We hiked up the hill and took the funicular down (must have tram/metro/bus ticket already OR buy one where you catch the funicular...you will need change, not bills, to purchase). The hike up was really nice, lots of trees. Once we reached the area of the tower we paid to get in and walked the circular stairs to the top.... More

This view point is amazing, but second to the Astronomical Clock Tower. You can get there by walking from the Castle (Its not such a tough walk), or there is a Tram that takes you to the top and it starts from the base of the Hill in town (you need a normal validated public transport ticket to use). From... More
