Climbed up this hill after visiting the tower of the castle. I have to say that the views from this vantage point were far superior. Would highly recommend making the climb to this hill - it’s not very strenuous and only takes about 20 minutes

It was a very cold January and I could feel my feet getting cold, so a brisk walk up to the Three Crosses was an excellent choice. It's mostly stepped which can be slippery when icy. The view is spectacular over Vilnius. I was blessed...More

The Hill of Three Crosses overlooks the old town and is visible from all round. Previous crosses on the same hill were pulled down during repression. They are in a moderate state of disrepair now. You can get to the top by foot or partway...More

We accidentally found out about that place. After New year's eve, it was not much crowded. You can have a wide view of Vilnius and also see the TV tower. It's a highlight of everyone's trip to Vilnius. The monument itself is also interesting because...More

Walk up to the hill via forest paths. At the top you get a great view of the city below. Worth the effort

Definitely recommend going there, the view over Vilnius is stunning. And it's a nice walk through a small forest.

The hill is located literally "at the side" of the Old Town and it takes no more than half an hour of walk to get there (it is uphill but all these "climbing" descriptions you can find here are greatly exaggerated, whatever route you take)....More

I walked up thru the Bernardine gardens but it was a slog climbing all the wooden steps. Walked down bringing us out at the Neris river above the bridge and the Old Arsenal. This I think would be a better way to walk up... More
