It might be quite difficult to get on the top of the hill (on foot only), but the view is worth it! There is the Ukrainian flag and a nice place for taking pictures. Might be very windy, since the area is high and open. However, the town looks gorgeous from there! But I hardly saw any gifts or snacks... More

Despite the name it isn't a massive walk to the top. The view is good but I prefer the view from the top of city hall. Still worth it.

When people go here for the first time they get disappointed cause the don't find a castle here. So just make sure you have clear expectations. I personally like this place. It's a nice hike not far from the city center. And it opens a great view on Lviv. Make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes and ready to do... More

It has a strong historical background, which is usefull to hear + it is the only place in the city, where you may watch all Lviv and recognize places you've just visited.

Actually there is not a Castle, It is more likely a Hill and at the top of the Hill you can see 360 degree view of Lviv. Must see place in Lviv

Mind you, there is no castle up there. the walk is fairly easy. I didn't much like the way the path was narrow and slippery and the bannister was very rickety. I do not recommend to go there as the view is not that interesting and the climb is not well paved and no security rails are in place.

It's always nice to look at Lviv from the very top, especially in night in winter, with all the city lights shining against white snow. Got great pleasure from our visit of the High Castle last weekend!

This was our first activity when we got to Lviv. We put our bags in storage and walked up the hill to take in the sights. The walk is fairly easy and the views are nice. Don't expect to see a castle though...there isn't one up there.

This is an amazing location to view the city and surrounding areas with a 360° view! I believe there is a small walking path that leads up to the top, however I took the staircase to the top! It's along ways so be prepared if you take the stairs! Near the top are some souvenir vendors as well as a... More
