  • Follow the blue map (D1) and it takes 40mins to the top. The view is rewarding and the tower entrance doesnt cost a dime. The lift is available.  more »
  • The trip with a cable car up here is definitely worth it! And the steps up to the tower too. From there, we had a great view of Karlovy Vary and its surroundings.  more »
  • Was there on May 24th. Really "have to visit" destination. Nice view!! Used a funicular to get up and walked down. Do it!  more »
