Having visited kosciuszko mound on a previous visit to krakow, we decided to visit krakus mound this time. From Jozefa Dietla it's about a 40-45 minute walk. Not that well signposted. Worth visiting for the history and the views, and nearby Liban quarry, 😉

This mound is much older than the one of Pilsudski that I visited earlier and also much smaller. But the surrounding is really nice for a short walk, you will find info board there and several benches to enjoy the view of the Old town...More

Nothing here other than the view over the city. A few benches provide a resting point when you've hiked to this Iron Age earth mound. There are no information boards. Would not recommend. Much more to spend time visiting.

There are far much better pictures on the internet than what really is. Beyond the history behind, it's just an elevated piece of land without any spectacular sights.

On our way to visit the site of Podgorze camp, we walked up the mound, great views over the city and beyond, even on an overcast and rainy day!

Discovered after a team journey across the river. Wandered down a few side streets and came across the hill. Soon got to the top and the views across Krakow where lovely. It was warm and sunny and very pleasant.

We walked from Kazimierz, over the river and up the hill. Nice walk, with a 4 year old and a 1 year old in a pushchair. Lovely views from the top, which did need a bit of a push up the hill with the pushchair!...More
