We took the funicular and walked to the top of the tower - well worth it! The views were amazing and got some good shots. It's a good way of seeing where all the tourist sites are (castle, old town, bridges etc). A nice, leisurely walk down the hill again

We were really pleased we decided to climb the 300 steps to the top of the mini-eiffel tower created for the 1891 Exhibititon - although there is a lift to the top with a mid-way point for a small extra charge. The views are just amazing across the Vlatava River to the Old Town, Castle, Lesser Town & down into... More

Great to start your day with taking the funicular to the top of the Petrin Hill and walking just a short distance to the tower. The rose garden at the last stop of the funicular is a nice bonus.There are several possibilities of combination tickets with various discounts, such as with or without elevator, seniors, students, family, with or without...

I visited on the 10/09/2014. The tower costs 120 koruna (about £3.50) if you use the stairs to get to the observation platforms (which I would advise) or 180 if you use the lift. The tower is open the following hours: 10 - 6pm November to February. 10 - 8pm March. 10 - 10 pm April to September. 10 -... More

worth a visit and the stair climb! The views, though limited, from the top are well worth it. Recommend visiting enroute from the castle and walking through the surrounding gardens. Definately go to the top if its a clear day out - be aware if you want to use the lift that there is an additional charge for the privalige.

My son and I arrived in this place in a rather unusual way! We bought a transport ticket (the tickets are timed - 90 minutes, 24 hours etc) and then just took a tram heading in the right direction. The Observation Tower was clearly visible on the horizon. As soon as the tram stopped going in the right direction we... More

The experience of Petrin Hill includes a visit to the Funicular Railway and Petrin Tower. The views from Petrin Tower are beautiful, 2nd best in Prague. # 1 (IMO) National Memorial Vitkov, a hidden gem that is often overlooked. A visit to Petrin Tower should include a visit along the Charles Bridge, giving you two different perspective of the bridge... More

It was very busy when we visited, which was mid morning. It was much quieter later in the day. You can climb the 299 steps or pay extra to take the elevator to the top. What a view you can see all over Prague, The Castle, Old Town and Mala Strana it is well worth the climb. There is a... More

We visited the Petřín Lookout Tower at dusk one night after a short ride on the nearby funicular. From there, it was a short walk to the towers base and a climb of 299 steps to the observation deck where the view was spectacular. It was especially satisfying to see the castle grounds from this perspective. Afterwards, we walked down... More

This is a must do in Prague. It offers a stunning view over the city and is well worth paying the entrance fee. If you are a student, do remember to bring ID as you get a much discounted rate. Wouldn't bother combining with nearby Mirror Maze as it is very short and small; not worthwhile doing at all. Spend... More
