4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Originally intended to help defend Prague Castle and Mala Strana against attack, Hunger Wall stretches through Petrin Park from Strahov to Ujezd. It was built between 1360 and 1362 on the orders of Charles IV in a time of severe famine. Enjoy a stroll through the park along the length of the mighty wall, and admire the strength and history of this ancient fortification. The construction work helped provide a livelihood for the some of the city's poorest residents, hence the structure's unusual name. It underwent repairs in the 17th, 18th, and 20th centuries.

  • This is a must see attraction for sure. Very interesting monument. The steps there are very tall and hard to climb as they are also slanted downwards. Worth the effort. Great pictures. 
  • Perfect in every way. More of an apartment than hotel. All the service of a hotel but with a giant living room in addition to the bedroom and kitchenette. Close to tram stop. Away from the noise. Nice neighborhood feel. Great restaurants within a 2 block radius. I can't wait to go back to Prague for the Christmas markets and stay at Hunger Wall Residence!
