We walked here from Oskar Schindler's factory and the two places do pair well together. It is not too arduous to get to the top and views are worth it. Take a drink with you. It takes about 30 minutes to walk back down and into the Jewish area of Krakow. Next time we would take a picnic.

A good place to get views of Krakow. Unfortunately, when I visited there was a swarm of flies which attacked everyone climbing up, or escaping down, the mound! Nearby in a disused quarry you can see the props left after the filming of "Schindler's List". If you're at a loose end I'd recommend it, but there are more interesting places to visit in and around Krakow.

A wiev of the city and surroundings. There isnt really anything to indicate hustorical meaning of the mound on the location. Hardly any signs either.

Wirth the climb if you are feeling for a little walk - go around the Plazow camp whike you are at it.

Very nice panorama at the top. 360 degrees view on Cracow. Just a few minutes from the city center by tram. Don't go through the cemetery as there is no exit at its end. Nice green flat areas where the locals are gathering. Very peaceful.

It is believed that this prehistoric man-made mound is the burrial place of king Krakus (legendary founder of Kraków). However, excavations in the 1930s did not reveal evidence of any human remains. Anyway, the 270m high mound is a good viewpoint over the city. It is just under 4 km southeast from the main square in the old town (basically follow Starowislna and cross the river towards Podgorze suburb). I combined the walk with a visit to the grounds of Plaszow concentration camp just beyond Krakus mound. Visits to both took me a whole day.

The Krakus Mound is slightly further afield but still walkable from centre.

The walk up the mound itself is not too steep and the views you get across the city from the top are fantastic.

There are benches at the top too for picnics so defo worth a visit.

Whilst the mound itself is exactly that - when you reach the top the views are panoramic and stunning you really capture all of the surrounding town/area

Really good to take a walk away from the city and take in the views from the mound. A good walk (definitely warms you up)
Really good views and air in the lungs!

The view from the mound were amazing, you were able to see the whole city. We went on a windy day, so it was quite noisy but worth the visit as it wasn't busy.

This is a nice 30 minute walk away from the centre of Krakow that gives nice views of that old city. I came here on a hot sweaty August day, there is no cover at all on top so bring that lotion if it's sunny outside.
