“Beautiful walk and a GREAT view!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I loved the walk up to Petrin hill! Only the first part is steep and the rest is a beautiful walk through the park and even the walk has great views. TAKE THE WALK!!! It is great exercise :) The towers itself was worth the money to go up. I also walked up the stairs which are not too bad. Also this way you get views the entire walk up. The only small disappointment is at the very top the windows were closed so it was not easy to get good pictures and it was a bit stuffy up there. This is a great activity in Prague that does not take too much time. Go on a clear day!

“Great activity to do”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I really enjoyed my trip up the Petrin Hill and tower. Best to save it for a clear day. Lots of stairs to climb - maybe not best for vertigo sufferers! Great photo opportunities and a chance to see the expanse of Prague. Enjoyed the mirror hall as well for a laugh, even though it was over rather quickly.

“Good place to exercise & walk”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We had a very pleasant time in Petřín Hill. It was a quiet park, but had some great inclines for hill climbing. We decided to forgo the funicular since we wanted to get some exercise. At the top of the hill was the Petřín Tower which is a smaller version of the Eiffel Tower. There was also an observatory and a maze. You can see some amazing views of the city at the top of the hill.

“Nice to go for a short hike”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

If you have time and the weather is good, have a walk around this city park. Be aware there is a lot of steep climbing! There is a funicular but still much walking. You can visit the tower - yikes! Nice views for photos but feels like it could be your last hoorah - kind of rickety. If you are really afraid of heights don't attempt. There is a cool mirror maze exhibit there too. The park is poorly marked so get a map ahead on internet or take a photo with your phone on one of the large entry maps. Even then, it's hard to navigate as nothing is marked. There are a couple of nice cafes to sit, have a drink, and enjoy the view.

“Great getaway from busy Prague center”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Petrin hill is just a short walk (with a little climbing) or a Funicular ride away from Prague center. It is worth a visit as you get gorgeous view of the city and also place for a nice leisurely walk.
