Beautiful view from the top of the 'castle' but it isn't a castle at all. Fine hiking trip but nothing special as it goes with sight seeing.

It's a bit of a hike but offers the best view of the city. If it's a nice day it is worth the trek, you won't be dissapointed.

I visited the Lviv High Castle as a part of the city tour that I'd highly recommend to take! Lviv High Castle is a beautiful place for panoramic photography. It can be challenging to hike all the 160 stairs, but it well worth it!

You are not going to see one stone of the castle ( as the literature says it was demolished in the late 1800s) but you will get a fantastic panoramic view.....

Just a hill, not very expressive view. Not worth to climb and look at some 'landscapes'. The old town is almost completely covered with trees. So-so entertainment.

No castle, just great views of the city. The walk up is nice and relaxing. It is not difficult to walk up the all the stairs to the top, most of path is shaded by trees. From the bottom to the top is about a 15 minute walk up

You walk up and can see around but you do not see on the main square of town but over the town. I didn't think it was spectacular because around town it is flat and the town from above is not sooo great.
