4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
Head to the top of Castle Hill for expansive views of the capital and the Neris River while exploring the remains of a 13th century castle. Walk the cobbled path up the hill, or hop on the funicular for a quick ride up. To get even higher, or for 360-degree views, climb the Gediminas Tower, a structure remaining from the old castle. A small museum displaying information on Lithuanian history, artifacts, and a model of what the city looked like during medieval times is also here. The hike up the hill is moderately challenging, so if you have limited mobility take the funicular. Put Castle Hill at the forefront of your travel plans using our Vilnius holiday planner.

  • During my stay in Vilnius among the top places to visit certainly could not miss the castle of Vilnius. Well let me start by saying that contrary to what I read in some review to the top of the castle there you get with a FAST WALK? In fact 2 ways to get to the top. Skirting the Cathedral you will find the entrance indicated with open gate and there begins a busy BUT nice walk through a cobbled Street that runs alongside the Castle Hill or, of what's left of it, and as you begin to enjoy the wonderful view of the city including the NERIS River which crosses the city finally on top where you will find the tower which is the only part of the castle was completely integrates whose visit the advise against because only coming from one of the bastions of the remains of the castle can enjoy fully the views of the entire city. I conclude then by saying that for those who fail to follow the cobbled street you can use the funicular that goes directly to the tower. That tell you more ... ENJOY THE WONDERFUL PANORAMA ....

  • It has great views, but much more there is to discover. You can easily walk and save the money for the lift.

  • After the felling of trees has become bald mountain. View of Mount opolozen′ spoils. On the mountain you can make shots. If you decide to climb on foot, about comfortable shoes is required. Pitching (boulders)
