I went there in Summer - when you "climb" this little mound and look - Cracow is lying to your feet! It is really a beautiful view over the city! This is a must see, when you are in Cracow!

If weather is nice and Y find time - take a walk (or taxi) to this place. It's a proper place to have a Krakow look. It's worth.

We have chosen it as an off beat attraction to see the city's panoramic view. First of all you have to pay an entrance fee so we made sure with the guard that spoke broken English that view is clear since it was pretty cloudy. After we got to the top it was windy and you could barely see the... More

I was surprised that u need to pay for the entrance , in the end it's just a mound. However, is very well presented: plan of the fort and history of the Mound; a few wax figure, a few battles with mats plan. There is a coffee shop, you can buy a souvenir or a playground for children. I really... More

We only found out about this thanks to the barman at our hotel. It doesn't seem to be well advertised. Our visit was well worth it. You can get a tram from the city centre to either Salwator or Rondo Grunwaldzski and then change to Bus No. 100 or 101 which will take you the Mound. The entrance fee to... More

Easy to get to by tram. Then walk up the hill, or as i did catch the 100 bus as it was a very warm day. Walking up mound is easy going and the views are well worth it. Also wax exhibition and coffee shop.

To get to the Mound, we followed our guide books' recommended walk, starting at Salwator tram depot and walking just over a mile (uphill) through Zwierzyniec, a nice quiet district with some picturesque streets and greenery. The Mound itself is pretty easy and quick to climb up, and gives very good views over the city. You have to pay to... More

The mound, being just West of the old town, gives a great panoramic view of the entire city. You can get there easily on the 100 or 101 bus, and the ticket to get in is only a few dollars.
