King Krakus not found, but the view is great
Sep 2020
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.

Lovely Views from the top
Sep 2020 • Couples
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.

Stunning

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 views
Jan 2020 • Friends
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.

Nice viewpoint
Aug 2019
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.

Worth the effort
Dec 2019 • Couples
With great 360 degree views across Krakow and surrounding areas, a good museum, good value entry and really suprisingly good restaurant this attraction is well worth a visit. You can get there by car and avoid a long walk but if you like a walk and enjoy scenery then it's well worth the effort

Great city views
Jul 2019
We parked on a residential street nearby, or take a bus. It was an easy climb to the top of the mound for views across the city. We went late afternoon, and it was a little cooler. There are also views over the Liban quarry. Walk down the other side and head to the left, past the Liban quarry. You come to the back entrance to the Podgorze concentration camp. Take time to wander around and come back out near Mc Donald's and the main road.
