We took a private tour from krakow for the day , it was £40 each for four people .We had to queue for a while to use the funicular railway but was well worth it , the views were stunning and we could have stayed longer but we were a little pressed for time .It does get very busy with loads of crowds but still worth a visit for the views , only down side was a very rude bar tender but I guess you can get them anywhere .
Altogether a great day and will try to spend a little longer there next time .

The views are spectacular. We all went snow tubing in one place at the top and loved that. It was 10zlt each. Great fun.

The ticket for the funicular is pricey considering there isn’t even a toilet at either station. I think they should provide one considering the cost (96 zlt) for 2 adults and 2 kids. You have to pay 3.50 on arrival per person for the toilet nearby

If ZakoPane is cake then this is icing on the cake. A must go for every tourist. Funicular ride takes you to the top and you witness a stunning view from there. The top spot has a proper market with lots of souvenir shops on both sides of the street. The main Gubalowka cafe offers magnificent view of the snow clad mountains and you can enjoy couple of drinks sitting there. Overall duration of trip up and down can be 1 hr (excluding lunch). Funicular rides are short (about 10 mins each side) and tickets are easily available at the ground level. We had a private tour so didnt have to pay it though.

Unfortunately, you have to pay PLN 12 per person if you want to hike on Gubałówka. That's why, unfortunately, I only give 2 stars, the path next to the train track is private, therefore every owner will charge a fee for passing through each area !!! At the beginning they charge PLN 4 per person, and for the next stop they charge PLN 8. You will pay a total of PLN 12 per person.

Given that you can get on the train for PLN 25 up or enter Morskie Oko for PLN 6, it's not worth wasting money.

We have hiked the around 1500 m path up the Gubalowka many times before (along the train track). It is a very nice hike with about 300 height meters – but if you take the time it is also doable with even small kids. But this time we were surprised as we had to pay for the hike… like two times?!? Frist time around 100 meters up the hill = 4 PLN per person and then after a further 100 meters up the hill you have to pay again = another 4 PLN per person…? It is not the amount of money – but it is very unclear and not tourist friendly! There are no signs at the bottom (or at the top) of the hill warning you about this craziness. Apparently, there is also a free path to the Gubalowka on the right-side of the train track – I think that we will try this next time in Zakopane…

Anyways the view from the top is amazing – and you can enjoy the beautiful view of Zakopane and the Tatra mountains!!!

My friend and I went up the cable car and the views are beautiful. It's winter so the snow definitely made the photos! Plenty of stalls/places to eat at the top. Also we went tubing which was really fun, the more goes you have the cheaper it is. Would visit again in the future.

We went on somewhat cloudy day so mountains weren't completely visible. Also went on a day in early September so crowds were very low. Very peaceful place to sit, drink a beverage and read a book while enjoying mountain air and views.

Very fun afternoon up the mountain with our extended family. Loads to do including sledding skiing and snow tubing. Loads of great places to eat and drink, fantastic views over Zakopane. We have been up for an afternoon and evening every year for the past 3 years and always had a great time, highly recommend!

We took the rail car up and expected to maybe take a few pictures, have a hot beverage and come back down. We wandered at the top for hours! There were miles of shops and food booths, and we didn’t realize how far we had walked. It was a wonderful afternoon. Plenty of lights, so we stayed until after it was dark, and it looked magical. We returned to the bottom with full bellies, great photos and wonderful memories. We were inspired to ski here the next day. So fun!

One can take car lift or walk to the Gubalowka pike where few restaurants, bars, play attractions for kids can be found. It is usually very crowded place. At the top of the Gubalowka there is a walking path (very flat and easy) to Butorowy Wierch peak. In sunny days one can have very good overview on the Tatra mountains and Zakopane town. Honestly this is the only good thing about this spot which is very crowded, noisy and too commercial.
