However me and my friends decided to walk the root up to the hill, you can use the funicular and enjoy the mesmerizing views of Petrin Hill and the beautiful Prague. It is breathtaking

Having already walked miles I didn't fancy walking up Patron Hill, this option is great and you can use normal public transport tickets. Trains go regularly and is very simple. Worth doing

Took the funicular which dates from the 1890’s to the top of Petrin Hill. It takes about 10 mins but you get stunning views across all of Prague. Cheap as well

My children wanted to visit Petrin Tower so we used the railway to get to the top of the hill. You can use your tram/metro tickets on this ride. It was a nice experience using this method of transport. People complaining of being scammed, you...More

Wish I had read the reviews before warning of the scam regarding the bully techniques employed to try and get you to pay a “fine” of 800 CZK per person. Please click on all the reviews that have given this 1 star and read about...More

We took the Funicular to the top of Petrin Hill as it was free with our Prague card. This made no difference however as the gentleman behind the ticket counter just waved everyone through. Great views on the journey up and from the top of...More
