This was our first activity when we got to Lviv. We put our bags in storage and walked up the hill to take in the sights. The walk is fairly easy and the views are nice. Don't expect to see a castle though...there isn't one up there.

This is an amazing location to view the city and surrounding areas with a 360° view! I believe there is a small walking path that leads up to the top, however I took the staircase to the top! It's along ways so be prepared if you take the stairs! Near the top are some souvenir vendors as well as a... More

Not much of a castle, but a very nice walk and great views of the city. Worth the walk for the views and exercise

The view is very good from the top, but there is no castle there. There was once one, but no any longer. Basically, you climb up in spiral and you have a great 360 degree view of the city.

After long climb up steep stairs you are rewarded with magnificent view of Lviv. From this vantage point you can see the different cultures that influenced the character of the city.

It is good way to walk, and after you reach the top, it has very good landscape ! If you bring some drink with you, you can enjoy your view more.

What is virtually left of the Vysokyi Zamok (as locals call it) is the name and a high flat top with a nice view over Lviv and its surroundings. Do not expect even ruins. It is just a kind of mound in a forest at 1.5 km from the central square. I liked the park more than the viewpoint because... More

It's just a hill with a fantastic panorama of the entire city. Nevertheless it was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours if the weather is permitting. There are approximately 250 steps to get to the top.

I took an early-morning run to the top of the Lviv High Castle recently while my night owl traveling partners slept in. I was amazed by the view I got of Lviv at sunrise. The trails up the High Castles are pretty well developed. Most anybody should be able to walk up without issues. As a run route, there were... More

Thanks to the annotated map provided by the Tourist Office, I was able to take a great walk around the city, taking in many churches and monuments and realizing how steeped in history it is. Ended up (with quite a few other people! ) at the lookout point of the old High Castle from which the whole sweep of the... More
