Diana is perhaps the most popular tourist attraction in Karlovy Vary. Take the funicular from colonnade street to get direct to this beautiful place incl. best famous look-out tower, 100 y. old restaurant, forest terrace, butterfly house and mini-zoo. Only in restaurant Diana you can eat surrounded by spa forests while watching our peacocks. From the look-out tower Diana you can take perfect photos of whole Karlovy Vary and surroundings. The butterfly house is a perfect goal of your trip in all weathers. On winter warm up by large fireplace in our historical restaurant, on summer surely use walking paths through the spa forests which starts right from our place. Visiting the "Tourist area Diana" will be nice and relaxing part of your trip to Karlovy Vary and you can come all year long.

Who has not been at the Diana Observation Tower, has not seen Karlovy Vary!

Travelling with the cabin to the hill is unique experience and the view is spectacular. We recommend to buy a daily ticket for city transport that costs 80Kč and you can use also cabin Diana within this ticket and also travel round the city whole day. If you want to buy ticket just for Diana cabin - return ticket costs... More

We came, we saw, we did it. It was a lot of steps up to the top. 150 to be exact. Easy peasy! It was a cloudy day but the sights of the town were great. I'm glad we came to check it out.

we took the funicular up and walked down ( about 20 minutes ) which is a nice way to do it. Weather was poor but the views from the top are outstanding anyway. There's a nice little cafe/restaurant which had a roaring fire going when we went so very cute all round. There also seems to be a little wildlife... More

The steps to this can be found near the hotel pupp.We went for the walk and not for the tower or the cable car ride.These attractions are closed for part of January and February but you can walk to the top in about 40 minutes or less depending on how fit you are. The walk is amazing in the snow... More

The view is beautiful but in my case it was a very short visit. I don't recommend going on a windy day... it can be really unpleasant.

The Diana Lookout Tower is very close to the Grandhotel Pupp. A short walk to the gate-pay area, to catch the funicular railway. This type of travel is so neat. Cost only 80CZK return trip and runs often up and down the hill. The funicular end stop at the top of the hill is where the Lookout Tower and Diana... More

Looks like its top point in KV with a great view to the city. 80 kroner per person for round trip (45 for one way) on funicular (would not recommend walking during the winter time) Free access to tower by elevator, on top there is 360 view to city and surrounding area. There are also butterfly museum, mini zoo and... More

Not much to say but you should go up there to see the city, it is a must and really recommended. You should visit also the butterfly garden there, really beautiful.

It was very windy and icy the day we visited. But surely the view on a clear day would have been awesome. The Butterfly room at the foot of the tower and the petting zoo was nice for kids.
