“Transport up the Hill!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

This is not really an attraction, although it is quite interesting. It is a good way to get up the Petrin Hill and then you can have a pleasant walk down. If you have a long day doing the tourist things in Prague, you will probably be walking a lot, so save your energy and don't walk you the hill!

“Tram?”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

When making a visit to the Petrin Hill or Tower you should consider taking the Funicular railway to the top and enjoy the walk through the park on the way back down.

we bought 2 - 30 minute tickets at 24 crowns each. this got us up the hill on the railway without getting out of breath, saving our energy to climb the Petrin Tower.

Nothing startling about the trip, just something different.

“Just for travel”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

It is a pubilc transport vehicle, not more not less. They accept the pubilc transport tickets, it's a bit slow, but it's a good way to get to the top of the hill.

“Great views!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We used the funicular to get to the top of Petrin Hill. Lovely views of Prague from atop the hill. Petrin Tower is also worth the price of admission.
We had 24 hour transportation passed that covered the funicular railway.
TIPS:
Location: Petrin Hill, Malá Strana
Trams #22, #12, #20, #9 to Ujezd. Then, take the funicular to the top of Petrin Hill.
Funicular: (note: funicular is included in transportation passes & single transfer ticket– otherwise price is 32 Kč for roundtrip or 24 Kč for one way.)
