Having spent the day in Karlovy Vary we found ourselves at the top of the town near the end of the shops and decided to take the small venicular railway up the hillside and ascend Diana Lookout Tower. The ascent on the 'train' was good and only took a few minutes and was fairly inexpensive. The tower itself is next to a restaurant/cafeteria with outside benches and was a nice place to rest following the day walking through town.
The tower however, was a fairly lengthy climb to the top. The lift ( there is one ) wasn't working the day we were there and being a little less active than I should be I was a bit out of breathe when I made it up. However, the views were pretty good and it wasn't that busy. A great spot to look out across the valleys and Karlovy Vary below and take some time to relax for a few minutes.
Coming down was easier and a quick bite to eat before dropping back down to the town. Probably all in all a one hour excursion which was basic but worth the effort for the cost.
If you are in Karlovy Vary and have an hour to spare check it out.
