About
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!

Beautiful view which you can reach without efforts
Aug 2020
The rail to the lookout tower as well as the lookout tower are super impressive. Only downside was the ques to reach this place but the wait was worth it in the end.

We stayed in Prague but traveled out by bus (2hrs) a bit tiering but worth it. A great day out with beautiful views. We went to the highest point where you can get a tram lift up and down. So scenic! Worth the visit! Lots of lovely restaurants not too pricey. A full days visit to plan for

Great place to see the panoramic view of Karlove Vary.
There is posibility to the top of the hill by small funicular and after to use a lift to reach the very top of Diana Lookout Tower.

Wonderful view

Definitely worth to hike to the top or to take to cablecar to the tower, the view over Karlovy Vary and surrounding after 150 steps is your reward.

Lovely view and good restaurant at the top

The funicular trip is short and the view from the lookout tower is superb (lift available). The restaurant below the tower is excellent.

Nice view of Karlovy Vary
Jul 2020
Diana is an observation tower located in the forests above the Grandhotel Pupp. The tower can be reached by walking on the spa trails or you can get there by the funicular. Admission to the observation tower is free (if you don´t want to go up the stairs, you can use a lift). Diana offers a wonderful view of the entire Karlovy Vary and its surroundings.

Next to the tower is a forest restaurant, Butterfly House and a small animal corner. White peacock also walk in the area.

Hike in the area
Jul 2020 • Solo
As my hike took me around the lookout tower, of course I made sure to go up there. I love lookout towers and views, and yes, the views are really nice. However, the tower is really crowded, even in these coronavirus times, when, I believe there's hardly any tourists here compared to other years.
I would probably skip it in normal times, this way it was still more or less OK.

Does what is says on the tin. It's a Tower, so climb the stairs or take the elevator and look out. Great views.

We enjoyed the trip up, nice they have an elevator. Once up you have great views over Karlovy vary. Afterwards we enjoyed some drinks on the terrace of the only restaurant up there.
