Hunger Wall, Prague
(4.4/5 based on 220+ 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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Hunger Wall by using our Prague travel itinerary planner.

  • After a little effort to reach the place (or else you can take the funicular), you'll find this spectacular set of statues to comemorate the victims of the war. It's sad and beautiful at the same time...  more »
  • One of the iconic images of Prague. Situated at the foot of Petrin Hill it is certainly worth having a look at if you are in the area. 
  • Coincidentally walked along and frankly wondered what it right. Not really bother.

  • 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!
  • Fantastic place! High quality, newly refurbished place with great atmosphere and service
  • Very clean and convenient to everything you will want to to see in Prague...highly recommended to anyone... the coffee in the cafe is excellent quality!
  • Prices are good and well organized flats
  • Very good coffee and cafè menu.even with a newborn this is a nice place to sit, rest and enjoy grande cappucino
