Lookout · Tourist Spot
Create an itinerary including Petřín
On a clear day, Petřín offers sweeping views of Prague and beyond. Rising some 130 m (420 ft) above the left bank of the Vltava River, the hill is one of the city's most popular recreational areas for both visitors and natives. The hill's dominant feature is a 62 m (200 ft) high lookout tower, inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Although you can scramble up the hill on foot, the easiest way to access the top is by a century-old funicular railway. Once there, you can climb the lookout tower's 299 steps for a small fee, or picnic in the park for free. For Petřín and beyond, use our Prague travel planner to get the most from your Prague vacation.

  • On a sunny day, the walk is absolutely charming. In spring the trees are blooming and their colours are just beautiful. I would recommend to do everything on foot, it’s not just good for the health.....  more

  • Best spot in Prague. With a funicular on the peak all the way down to the bottom
