Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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!

Just at the side of the grand pupp hotel there is a funicular ride up the side of the cliff, you can walk up but it is steep and funicular wasn't expensive, there is a road up as well as there were cars parked.. Up at the top there are walks and also the tower which has great views all round from its viewing platform, there are around two hundred steps up to the top, but it also has a lift. There is a restaurant up there as well, when we visited there was also a wedding so a busy spot.

Must see if you have few hrs to spare. Can go up by funicular, and walk back. The views from top is simply breath taking. It's usually windy on the top of the tower. Take a jacket. There is a nice restaurant serving local dishes, beer and deserts. There is a small gift shop, and a mini zoo with few cute animals. Kids love it. Walking back is refreshing. Take about 25-30 minutes. The forest is pretty at any time of the year.

We were in KV in February, so much of the forest 'green' was absent, but worth a trip up the Diana Lookout Tower to see the town of Karlovy Vary and surrounding area. You can easily catch the tram or walk up/down. Access from the town main thorough fair is near /behind the Grandpupp Hotel. Ideal starting point to get your bearings. For those who like walking, the walking trails are easily accessible and well marked. The Lookout Tower itself has a a charming feel completed in 1914.

Work off all the rich meals by a walk in the woods above Karlovy Vary. Paths are well established but some lack good marking.

Even if it is a little laid off, but must see. So whatever you do, just go and visit it. I would suggest to take tram up, but down you should take a walk through the forest walkway.
