“closed twice this year for maintenance”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed in the Roma hotel which is opposite the railway but is closed for repairs on the following times Spring: from 11 March until 27 March 2013, Autumn: from 14 October until 1 November 2013.

Well worth using to save your legs going up, and a nice walk down through the park

“An enjoyable ride- but make sure you validate your ticket!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Having read previous reviews about the railway we where unsure whether or not it was something that we wanted to do. But my partners interest in trains confirmed that we would be taking a trip on the railway.the transport system in Prague is easy to use but ensure that you don't get caught out there is a machine at the top and bottom to buy tickets but make sure that you validate them as you walk through the gate!

“Great value”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

For the price of a Prague metro ticket you can ride to the top of the hill. In most cities they would make this a tourist attraction at a much higher price. The view and walk at the top is good and our children enjoyed it. Don't forget to stamp/frank your ticket before you enter.

“Temporarily closed 03/11/13 to 03/27/13”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Sign at entrance showed closed 03/11/13 to 03/26 or 03/28/13 or maybe earlier (writing this several hours after seeing sign, so can't remember). I don't read Czech, but assume it's closed for repairs. Entrance is fairly close to road/Hunger wall so a short walk up following green signs should be able to confirm which date it re opens.

“Corrupt Petty Officials”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went on a snow covered day and the views were spectacular. However, we spent most of our time there being bullied by a couple of corrupt officials. We had paid for our tickets but failed to frank them. They wanted us to pay cash for a fine. Theywanted no cards andno receipts involved in the transaction. They took our passports off us and threatened to call up the police. We said "yes, please call the police" . After half an hour and intervention from local travelers we got our passports back. Please beware.
