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
Excellent,after walking uphill,being unable to find the fernicular station at the bottom,we were rewarded with a magnificent sight,the Petrin tower.
At first it the prospect of the climb to the top was daunting 299 steps,but salvation came,there was a lift.A small extra charge,and we were...More
It was great even though it was a wet and windy day.
You have to pay extra to use the lift, wish we had on this day.
It’s a fair climb to first level then a very good climb to the top.
Would say if...More
This was an excellent place to visit. Sadly it went sour as I had a transport ticket to travel up in the funicular. I asked the staff downstairs if I could use my ticket which had 5 minutes left till expiry. They said yes...but once...More
This is another good observation point. Views from the top are fantastic.
You can climb the nearly 300 steps or for a few more CKZ, take the lift.
But...this another tourist spot where many go but fail to do any research on the how, what,...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
I have not seen anything spectacular in this construction, although there is a lot of publicity. Initially it was a tower used for transmissions, so it does not have a beautiful architecture. I did not climb to the top of the tower, because I thought...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.
