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.

  • Rose walk, went down too by foot, a good view of the whole city, if the wind is something pretty cool maybe, but this is looking on the street.

  • It's not a super easy stroll - and for the love of all things, be careful on those cobbles - but it's a great little walk to the top of the hill and well worth the view on a fine day.  more »
  • We wanted to visit but were told by our guide that it is closed due to erosion and could be for a month or so - check before setting off to take the trip to the top  more »
