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.
299 steps to the top of this tower but well worth the walk as the views across Prague are absolutely stunning. You could pay a bit extra to get the lift but where is the fun in that?! It cost us 150 czk each to...More
Absolutely must go up Petrin tower if you’re in Prague ! It’s like a mini Eiffel Tower with 360 degree views of Prague. The stairs will give you a good workout on the way up or there’s a lift for those who can’t manage the...More
Here's my review.
The views from the lookout tower is great.
The staff are friendly.
The price for the entry tickets & for the lifts are quite high.
There should be a bit of crowd control as it gets very crowded...More
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

It will cost aprox. 150 Kc per...More

This attraction is an absolute must teenagers, especially the narrow stairs, walking up and down is good fun. Please buy tickets in advance (mass tourism everywhere) in order to avoid the crowds in the afternoon. July may be hot, consider going there in the morning. Afterwards take a walk through the nice park to Strahov monastery. You will be then behind the Prague castle and can start another lovely walk there.
