Federal Hill used to be a Union Army fort that's why it look like a big man-made hill on the harbor. In the Civil War union troops had cannons pointed on Baltimore to keep it in the union. After all, Maryland is south of the Mason Dixon line and was a slave state so folks in Baltimore were pretty sympathetic... More

If you're at the inner harbor going to Federal Hill Park for the view is worth the walk. It will take about 10 minutes to get to the park and up the hill, but the photos you can take will be worth the effort! Any time i'm near the park I go up and take photos. I even proposed to... More

Federal Hill right on the harbor offers great view of the inner harbor and photo ops. Visited the hill several times, where I loved sitting on a park bench to enjoy the picturesque harbor and tranquility. An afternoon stroll through the park will always be a pleasant thought during my future visits.

Awestruck by the view of Baltimore ' s Inner Harbor, it was a great place for pictures and relaxation. Great for families especially ones with small children as there is a giant playground. It was a wonderful addition to our trip to Baltimore.

Federal Hill is central located and will give you a lovely view of the Inner Harbor. If the sun is shining I highly recommend going on up. It is easy to scale with stairs. The enormous flag may be flying and it is an impressive sight up close as well.

The park was the location for our daughter's wedding pictures and it was truly a perfect spot (minus the cold wind that blew!) Apparently, many people felt the same. There were couples doing engagement photos when we arrived. I think the view speaks for itself in that it is beautiful. You can see the entire harbor and are directly across... More

A 4 mile run through the harbor was topped off by several trips up and down the stairs at Federal Hill Park. Came back later that same evening to people watch and enjoy the views of the city at night.

Be prepared to climb lots of steps, but well worth it to see the inner harbor from the opposite direction.

This is a lovely park to go to on a pretty day or when you need to see the Baltimore skyline. It's a nice walk, and well worth the trip to the top.
