The hill of three crosses is an even better place to look out over the city than the Gediminas Tower. There are mutliple routes to get there, one of which are very steep stairs. These stairs have some steps missing, so I wouldn't recoomend this route for less mobile people. The view is great and the routes are calm and... More

Climbed to the top via the more challenging dirt track which was good fun. Having arrived at the top, we were treated by fantastic views. Wouldn't recommend taking the same dirt track down though, seems a bit dangerous...

It is definitely worth crossing the river and hauling it up to the Hill of Three Crosses. The old crosses that the Soviets knocked down are still there and the view over Vilnius a good reward! The crosses are based on a legend that seven Franciscan friars were beheaded on top of this hill. Wooden crosses were built in the... More

As part of a bus tour of Vilnius we were taken to the Hill of Three Crosses. It was quite a climb from the parking lot to the top of the hill so that should be kept in mind. We had an excellent guide who pointed out the main points of interest and explained the history of the site. There... More

As I am not religious, I was not about to spend time hiking to the site. However, if you have a decent telephoto lens, you can view it clearly from the Old Castle.I am sure views of the city are great there, but I suspect they are not better than views from the castle.

The height is not much. So anyone can walk up there. Trust me, it is real fun. Besides, you get a nice view of the city and the castle hill next to it.

It is a bit of a walk to get to the crosses but the view is totally worth it in every season. You can see all of the churches' rooftops as well as the Gedimino tower and hill.

Its worth going up for the view. While it may be possible to walk up, going by vehicle is highly recommended instead.

Crosses are boring, but nice (and free) panorama of Vilnius from this spot. Though you have to climb/walk uphill quite a bit.
