Not too far a walk from Rynok square in the heart of the city centre, the old castle hill offers a nice 360 degree view of the city and the surroundings. Don’t be fooled by the name; there’s really is no castle there anymore yet the views were, if maybe not stunning, well worth the walk.

We went with a knowledgeable guide which was interesting. Nice climb and good views of the city from the top. Go if you have time. But if you miss it its not the end of the world.

Trees block the views. The city needs to trim badly. Overall a nice park to do some jogging and city inhabitants use frequently even in cold weather, so you don't feel extremely alone in the woods or something. No castle, so don't expect one. Access cab be difficult without a map, but the city does surround it on all sides,... More

No, there is no Castle here. It's just a nice little park atop the Hill that overlooks the City. Definitely worth the hike, and the perspective you get of the entire City from there.

Interesting place to have a beautiful overview over the city of Lviv, built on a number of hills itself.

The High Castle is literally a high point - but not much else. The castle has been completely wiped out and there is now a viewing platform with a neighbouring communication mast that does not look at all Medieval. Yes, there is a good view of Lviv but you have to say that Lviv looks much better close up. It... More

Do not hesitate to spend time going up the stairs on the top of this high point - it takes about 15 minutes. All the city can easily be seen from this point. Wonderful pics and view guaranteed. The place is not overcrowded. Advice: go in the night.

It is a lovely trek up a small hill. The view from the top is beautiful if you have clear skies. No recommended if you have walking disability or if it is raining
