  • It had been snowing so a hike up and down would not have been suitable. Instead we took the funicular. The view at the top over Karlovy Vary was gorgeous. There is a restaurant up there as well.  more »
  • We enjoyed a lovely view of the Diana lookout tower. It's especially nice if there is snow, so like us in the December 2017.
