Nice views

It is a bit of a walk from the old town although you can take public transport. It's easily combined with the Schindlernfactoey and you get a nice view over the city.

Easily reached from the center, the mound overlooks the river, the city, and the forest parks around it. Good view on Nowa Huta in the distance too. Chose a bright and sunny day for the visit .Can be windy on top.

A mound, a hill of dirt. Nevertheless offers a good view of the city, particularly the park nearby. A quiet stroll on a morning or late afternoon would be fine.

Favourit tourist attraction of Krakow visitors is one of four Krakow mounds. By bus it takes about 10 minutes to get here and the bus stop is right at the entrance to the fort/mound. The other option is to use path around river bank and then throught the alley. Trip recommendation: Visit Pilsudski's mound (which is higher than this) and... More

We walked from the main square in Krakow to Wawel Castle and then along the river to get to the mound. It was such a lovely walk, I highly recommend walking rather than getting a tram or bus. It took us about an hour and it was not that strenuous. The mound itself is great and I could have sat... More

This was one of the highlights of our Krakow trip, not just because of this unusual monument but the fact we visited it on a gloriously warm sunny day. It’s one of three mounds that are dotted around Krakow, but for me is undoubtedly the best of the bunch. Unlike the other two mounds this one is surrounded by a... More

A good view back to a distant centre and out into the surrounding countryside. The walk is uphill along a lovely tree lined street and tiring especially if walk back as well as we did but part of the walk can be alongside the river to break up the street pounding. There is a local bus up to the mound... More

We came here as a stop off point. We wanted to climb to the top of the mound for the views and take some photos with our cameras, then maybe have a coffee in the coffee shop. Both of these were closed. I'm unsure if this was due to the weather (very windy) or due to the time of year.... More
