Diana is perhaps the most popular tourist attraction in Karlovy Vary. Take the funicular from colonnade street to get direct to this beautiful place incl. best famous look-out tower, 100 y. old restaurant, forest terrace, butterfly house and mini-zoo. Only in restaurant Diana you can eat surrounded by spa forests while watching our peacocks. From the look-out tower Diana you can take perfect photos of whole Karlovy Vary and surroundings. The butterfly house is a perfect goal of your trip in all weathers. On winter warm up by large fireplace in our historical restaurant, on summer surely use walking paths through the spa forests which starts right from our place. Visiting the "Tourist area Diana" will be nice and relaxing part of your trip to Karlovy Vary and you can come all year long.

Who has not been at the Diana Observation Tower, has not seen Karlovy Vary!

worth a visit

worth taking the lift up to the summit and then climbing the tower. Good views all round. We walked back down which took about half an hour.

Touristy place but great draw. Take the funicular up and walk down - go early and avoid the often considerable lines. Fantastic views

Take a fantastic nordic walking tour through the Forest and up to the Diana Tower, you will be rewarded with a fabulous view from the top, the tower has a lift and also about 150 stairs.

This tower has great views of the city and is very reasonable to ride up; about 3.50 euro pp. Highly recommend!

Nice place to go. You will see Karlovy Vary from completely different prospective. If you do not want to burn too much calories - you can use the lift, which can bring you up and down. The forest offers you very nice trails.

A nice nature spot next to the touristic road of Karlovy Vary. You can reach it by walking or by mono train. The observation from above on a sunny day is nice.

We took the funicular to reach the Diana top. There you will find a local coffeeshop and mini zoo. The view from the tower is lovely. Nice to be there.

You can either take the funicular to reach the top or you can hike it all the way. I'd recommend the funicular though. When you reach the top, the view is mesmerising. You can take a 360* walk around but beware of the space. It can get crowded & the place upstairs is very small. When I went, the price... More

We took the funicular to the Diana Lookout Tower. Upon arrival at the top funicular station, we were surprised by the white peacock there. In addition, there were other peacocks and and some piglets there. Our girls were very happy seeing these little pigs and the birds. There was a restaurant there for a good rest. We went up the...
