Castle Hill, Vilnius
(4/5 based on 380 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.

  • The "Castle Mountain" can be reached on foot or by cable car. Walking is not hard and do long rides for 2 euros you can climb and descend, for 1 euro-travel in one direction. At Castle Hill is Gediminas Tower Museum (entrance fee), the ruins of an ancient fortress and an observation deck with views of the city. Place of discharge must see in Vilnius. "Castle Mountain" dominates the neighbourhoods of the old city, is located next to the river and opposite the more impressive mountain "3-piece crosses".

  • In the museum itself get failed because it was closed. But I was not saddened, because with beautiful views of the mountains. On one side you can see the old town and, standing majestically above it, the Church of St. Anne. On the other hand, you can enjoy views of the river Neris, the Vilnius tv tower and the city as a whole.

  • Prefer a hike to the top of the Gediminas Hill to enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Vilnius.
