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!

They have a tram but it is a great hike up the hill through the forest. Good walking shoes are a must as it gets slick and steep if wet. Watch the weather and dress appropriately.

It's 1 of the famous places you have to visit in Karlovy Vary, you can drive to their or you can use the cable car (mono rail) and there is a butterfly garden and a small zoo.

Lovely view from the top. There is elevator access which is a bonus for those who don't want to walk up the stairs. A little tight in the viewing area though that could just be due to the pushiness of tourists

Took a ride with rag railway to the top of the mountain and took a hike down. The view from Diana Tower was beautiful. Took the elevator to the top of the tower and came down by stairs.

Really beautiful view to the city of Karlovy Vary and surrounding. To get there it is possible using a rag railway or a small hike from the railway station, it is about 1,5 km.

Both the funicular ride or tracking on foot is very enjoyable as leading through the forest. On the top the view from Diana Tower over Karlovy Vary is spectacular.

Enjoyed the trip up to the lookout on the Funicular Railway. The queue for the lift was slow so we walked up the approximately 150 steps to the top. We were blessed with lovely weather and had a clear view of the surrounding countryside & down to Karlovy Vary - well worth the climb. We decided to walk down the... More
