There are 2 ways to get up here, both involve walking, but one is much less. If you have access to a car you can drive right up to the stairs. It you don't have access to a car then you have to walk up twice as many stairs. Please realize that is better in summer than in winter for... More

Hike to the top is a challenge but the view from there is unbelievable. Can see miles in all directions.

It has absolutely amazing view of the city and suburbs. You can feel the city from up there - you can see trains rolling, people and cars going somewhere, everything moving around. Or you can just sit peacefully and enjoy beautiful scenery on horizon. Absolutely "must visit" place in Lviv.

Quite an easy climb to a very good view at the top. My experience was soured by seeing 2 magnificent tethered eagles as well as 2 small monkeys with someone trying to charge for pictures. This type of thing should be illegal and people should not encourage it by taking part.

The walk up the hill is quite steep. But it is well worth the fanatic view of Lviv. We could see on this clear day clear to Carpathian Mountains.

There is some steps to the top, but when reaching the top you have an amazing 360 degree view of the city. I can highly recommend going here for a couple of hours.

Definitely worth the trip up for the view of Lviv. Know there isn't actually a standing castle here.....

Just like most European cities, Lviv has signs pointing to its various tourist landmarks. These include signs pointing to the High Castle which lead to a hill a few blocks outside the city center. Once you get there you begin a long climb up the tree covered hill and follow the signs to High Castle. When you get to the... More

Lviv High Castle is not a castle at all - it is a hill offering a 360-degree view of the city and its surroundings. The view is stunning - it is a must in Lviv! It is located in the central part of the city, within a walking distance.
