Petrin Hill, Prague
(4.2/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web)
On a clear day, Petrin Hill 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. Arrange your visit to Petrin Hill and discover more family-friendly attractions in Prague using our Prague trip builder.

  • A long walk up some quite uneven terrain which was quite steep in parts. Great views of the city from up here. Didn't pay the extra to go up the tower as the queue was quite long even at this time of ...  more »
