We walked up Petrin Hill coming from Strahov Monastery, and the walk was pretty lean and relaxing and i think it took about 10 minutes. The Petrin Tower is a must, as it gives you a wonderful 360 degree perspective on the city of Prague....More

With the Prague Card, the "walk up" is included. However, for a little bit more, we paid for its elevator (lift) up to the top and back down. Views from the top were fabulous. Other guests were all friendly and taking photos for others.

This is on top of Petrin Hill, which in itself has really nice views of Prague, so I’m not sure you need to go up the tower for that. They only take cash for tickets. I’m not sure I’d make a special trip to do...More

If you want to spend money and max 15 minutes walking, you can try visiting Petrin Tower and its surroundings. Visiting the tower takes 5 minutes max and if you have to use the stairs, maybe 10 minutes. It will cost aprox. 150 Kc per...More

Only takes CASH at the tickets counter. View is really good at the top, but can get crowded at times. Mirror maze is good for kids, really small, and not worth visiting.
