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!

Not a architectural marvel or the most beautiful too. But the entire setting makes a fabulous viewing. The tower, perched atop a beautiful hill looks majestic. The white colored watch tower makes an imposing sight. You have an option to go up the tower and admire the wonderful view around. And don't forget to have lunch at the Diana restaurant.... More

About 150 steps, or you can use a lift :-) . Nice view on Karlovy Vary. You can get there by walking or by funicular.

We decided to go up the tower in the morning and figured out we were wrong. The restaurant opened very late. Also it was very cold up there in month of march. We went up the tower via funicular. The ride is pleasant one between thick green trees all around. However nothing great. You can visit if you have ample... More

Nice walk, beautiful view, cute animals. The lady making drinks at jelenyj skok is totally unexpected exceptionally good. Best drinks we had in a long time. Perfect to spend some time for two grown ups with a smal child.

This tower, lying on high mountains in Karlovy Vary, gives you the chance for a 360^ panoramic view of the beautiful city of Karlovy Vary. You can access the tower entrance by steps or by taking the rail cars. You can also climb the tower by stairs or elevator.

We took the funicular up and it was totally worth it. The natural beauty of this country is outstanding and definitely worth a look.

You must take a cable car up which is a good experience itself. It's free to enter the tower and when you get up there you're immediately amazed!

So close for the center, great place for a small escape trip. A quick ride up the funicular and there you go. Unbelievable view of Karlovt Vary if you go up the tower (elevator available and acess is free). Walking down is also a nice alternative.

Good view, not expensive, be careful for the queue. If you have to wait more that 20-30 min., then its not worth it. Go with faniculer for climbing!
