“Mysterious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

One of my favourite places in Krakow, great view from the top and nice walk from Kazimierz, over the footbridge and via Podgorze district. Hidden gem that is slowly getting more and more popular with tourists discovering this ancient monument.

“take a break and stroll up here for a view back over Krakow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

If you want to stretch your legs and want a view of Krakow this is a nice walk. You will find this on most of the tourist maps, the other side of the Jewish district.

“What a view!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The mound itself is set in a beautiful park making the walk very enjoyable. The spiral pathway up the mound is a very easy climb, the views back in to Krakow are really good. The walk from the pedestrian river bridge is also very pleasant through a nice residential part of Podgorze climbing away behind the imposing Chuch which leads to the bridge across the Motorway and Railway its then a pleasant zig zag walk up through the park to the mound. At the time we did it the Autumn colours were also amazingly beatutiful on the way there.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is probably the nicest place in whole Krakow. Of course if you are rather outdoor type of a guy. It's a really place of great peace and tranquility.

The panoramic view onto the Krakow and its surroundings bathing in the sunset is one of the best experience you can ever have.

“Among the best non-commercial attractions in Krakow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

You simply walk to this man made hill. Its a very nice stroll from the old town across the river. There you could walk across the bridge where lovers show their affection for eachother in a very significant way. I am not going to spoil how, but it is really worth seeing. Then when keep on walking you will see a bigh church or Cathedral. Keep on walking and you will find a trail in the end of a road. That trail leads to church or whats left of it from St. benedict or similar. Apparently very old. You also see a fort or some military oldish construction, which is behind barbed wire or fences and you cannot approach. What you can do is keep on walking in kind of open wood and then out of the blue, krakus mound will appear in the horizone. You then just walk towards it from those paths. What you also could do is pay a taxi driver and drive all the way - but that would be less exciting. When you are there beaware that there are no safety railings, so be careful when going up, especially in autumn or winter - I have tried all seasons. The view is fantastic and if you are lucky you planned your trip to a day of clear water, and perhaps you brought yourself a drink or two to share with your travellingpartner. Have a drink, cheer the moon and the fantastic view.
