It provides a good view over Prague. However it can be crowded at the top since tickets are not assigned by time.

The tower is situated at the top of a hill via a path winding up through a beautiful park. There’s a cable car, however, we decided to walk. You’ll not only get a little exercise, you’ll see Prague beneath you. Take cash and make sure...More

Petrin Tower is set in a splendid park and gardens. You can either walk up to it or take the funicular. At the tower, if you are fit enough you can pay to walk the spiral stairs to the top. From here there are fantastic...More

As there was a huge queue at the Funicular, we decided to walk to the Petrin Lookout Tower, it’s fairly steep in places but would not prove too challenging for most people, the walk takes no more than 30 minutes. You can get a drink...More
