Got the tram here and enjoyed a great day. Walked back down to the town and took loads of pictures on the way!

“OK....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Its a nice walk to the tower...up all the hills, but a bit of an anti-climax when you see the tower as its not that tall. Its better to walk up the tower as it will only take you 5 mins rather than paying for the elevator. The views at the top are obscured by the glass, so your better off taking pics half way up, where there is an open balcony.

“Need strong legs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went up via the funicular which was excellent value and a good trip. Entry to Petrin Tower 105 CZK per person - then the 300 step climb to the top! Wow - views all across Prague which on a clear day I guess would be spectacular.

“Super views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

There is a funicular that takes you to the top for about £1 (return) and then a tower to climb (or get the lift). About £3 for entry. I'm not very good with heights and struggled a little with vertigo, but worth the trip to the top as the highest point for miles..

“Nice stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Petrin hill is very nice, clean, lots of well managed paths and sights. A Petrin tower is a must in the nice weather, also the hall of mirrors is quite interesting. Otherwise just enjoy the walk and scenery...a really romantic place.
