A friend and I visited Poland and wanted to take in as many sights as possible. We took a long walk from the centre of Krakow and ended up at Krakus Mound, and I'm really glad we did. Whilst it was freezing cold, the 360 degree view we got was fantastic. Just to the rear of the mound is a... More

Walked to this Mound from Schindlers factory, need a map as not well signposted (yet) still working on paths etc, but once you climb to the top the view over Krakow is fab. Worth the walk to a free attraction.

Great place to go and see all of krakow from far out. It is very easy to go up and you will not even get tired. And the views are magnificent. For someone who is visiting it might be a bit tricky to find. But it's worth it, especially on a nice clear day (unfortunately I was not that lucky).

The view over Krakow is lovely and it is a great location to go out, read a book or have a picnic. It is better to walk there than take any other means of transport. Especially if you live in Kazimierz.

It is a bit tricky to find (we walked there some long way and discovered a better one only on our way back), but the views of the city are amazing. Schindler's List was filmed in the area, and there are still ruins of the abandoned watchtowers they built for the movie. Generally, visiting the place was an interesting experience,... More

We took a tram in the general direction of the Mound which is on a hill just outside town and walked till we found signs directing us to it. What we hadn't checked was transport to it direct. But we enjoyed the tram ride and the walk. There is a road and also footpath and we chose the road. It... More

The view is pretty good and it's a nice place to have a picnic with friends. It's not really hard to get there and it's a pleasant walk.

Krakus mound is the perfect thing to do on a sunny day in Krakow. It is a nice walk from the center of town and once there the climb up the hill is not difficult. The view from the top is beautiful! On a nice sunny day you can see pretty far. There were only two other people when we... More
