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!

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.

Dear Sir, the minizoo behind tower includes two shetland ponys, four cameroon goats, two göttingen pigs + six piglets and two peacocks (not "two cows and one goat" as you write). I think you should declare the truth on Tripadvisor and not mystify other guests... And short notice - the view from the tower is more than 70 km and... More

Once you are up here the Tower provides good view. I suggest to take the pathway downhill towards Grandhotel Pupp and visit the other tower near here.

Ecxcellent view, free access by elevator. There is also a butterfly garden close to it with plenty of marvelous butterflies. A small Zoo is very nice with two peacocks walking free. Take a walk down from it, the forest is unforgettable.

The Diana lookout tower lays on a beautiful spot in Karlovy Vary. There are different tracks (which is a overestimated word) upside. There is also a little train to go up and/or down. The view upside is very nice, on one side to Karlovy Vary and to the neighbour village, on the other sides to the beautiful surrounding hills. I... More

One of the best views to the Carlsbad city. The First stop called the Deer Jump brings you to the same name Vista point. You will arrive there thru the Tsar Peter I vista point.
