Really enjoyed the butterfly house and the albino peacock sat at the window throughout lunch. The restaurant gets very crowded but the waitress are good at noticing tables. Food was solidly average. It was good, but did not stand out. Prices were very reasonable especially...More

Great vista from tower on hill over Karlovy Vary and vicinity. To get to it one may walk steep hill up or just take funicular up :), and some take it down too - but rather walk down through lovely beech forest paths.

Must do if you like short hikes. The trail is easy for families with children but not toddlers. Beautiful view . Real escape from the city.

View is great and I really enjoyed the ride, I wish I could have done the walking. The viewing towers stairs were closed so we had to take the elevator which is okay because it’s a 150 steps up to the top.

A lovely day was spent visiting the tower area. Took the funicular to the top and then had a very lovely snack at the restaurant at the top then went up to the tower. Worth the visit and remember to walk down!

Diana Lookout Tower - entry fee ? (10 Replies)
Is there an entry free for visiting the lookout tower ? Thank you for your help

Hi Robert Thanks for the link. I indeed read this one before. It says - the entry to the tower is free. However in some of the reviews, it was mentioned that it's too high fees...which is why I asked the question :)
