Was part of bus tour I took. Great view! Was able to get a panoramic photo. Worth a trip to the top.

Busy at the top but nice views and worth the walk. Take some water in summer. Not for those who struggle physically

A bit of a climb, up stairs and paths but worth it for the views of Lviv. Not much to see of the castle! Lots of wildlife and birds in the woods enroute!

This place has an interesting view of Lviv. You can reach the top by stairs. Probably it takes about 20 min.

This high castle hill about 2km east from Rynok square is a good vantage point to see 360 degree view of Lviv town. However on top there is nothing to expect with only the Ukraine flag on top and little sitting space. Come around 5.30-6.00pm...More

We enjoyed our walk here, through the streets and up through the public gardens, However the views from the top were a little limited because of the large number of local school groups. We did pass one English couple, but kept stum as we overheard...More

It's quite an easy walk up, though may become challenging if you're hopelessly unfit. On the way there and back you pass some residential areas that are not a part of the famous touristy Lviv, which allows you to see the "real", local city.

It's not far away from city center. You can easily go there on foot. View is very nice and on top you can drink Kvas do drink which is amazing.

Really nice walk and well worth the view. Got to say though, can clearly see the smog over Lviv from that high though!

Even it takes about 10’ to get to the top the views are worth. I do recommend to go at noon when the sun it’s nearly down
