Petřín, Prague

4.3
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.

  • We enjoyed our visit to the tower and mirror museum. We decided to walk up the STEEP hill instead of taking the funicular railway and it was an ‘energetic’ experience! The tower has magnificent views....  more »
  • Well worth the climb to the top of the tower. Kr150 well worth paying. Enjoyed simple takeaway food in the cafe on the tower ground floor.  more »
