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!

Although you can take the funicular railway, we chose to climb to the top. There are many trails to chose from and they are well marked. The main trail is not overly steep and walking through the woods is simply magic! The view from the...More

Don't miss it while you are in Karlovy Vary. The view is breath taking! For 2 euros you can have a conmemorative coin of the place!

Lovely views of surrounding area. Free lift to the top. Restaurants nearby and the start of many hiking trails in the woods. Worth a visit.

Romantic walk or for handicap people accessible by funicule.(train) Pleasant restaurant,good coffee and deserts. Visitors, well funded physically, can walk up the tower(140 steps) to see the whole city . Walking trails are not always well marked. Nice weather is essential.

The title pretty much says it: you ascend the hill by cable car ( 80 Czech Karuna) and then to the top of the lookout tower ( I think there was a nominal fee) for beautiful views of KV. I highly recommend!
