Create an itinerary including Petřín
On a clear day, Petřín offers sweeping views of Prague and beyond. Rising some 130 m (420 ft) above the left bank of the Vltava River, the hill is one of the city's most popular recreational areas for both visitors and natives. The hill's dominant feature is a 62 m (200 ft) high lookout tower, inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Although you can scramble up the hill on foot, the easiest way to access the top is by a century-old funicular railway. Once there, you can climb the lookout tower's 299 steps for a small fee, or picnic in the park for free. For Petřín and beyond, use our Prague travel planner to get the most from your Prague vacation.

  • Most beautiful park in Prague to just walk, relax, and enjoy great views of Prague. Lots of easy walking trails, flower gardens and observatory on top. Also Petrin tower to climb or even better...

  • It's beautiful. I'm glad I visited but I felt like it's a tourist trap. If you want to use elevator to go to the top, you have to pay double otherwise you have to use stairs. Even you buy a ticket...

  • An absolutely awesome spot to see a panoramic view of Prague! Definitely take the cable car up the hill and save your legs for the climb up the tower to see those amazing views. We also checked out the mirror maze which was pretty cool and had some fried cheese burgers. A great way to spend a half day.
  • Nice place for a walk, if you don't take cable car, be prepared for a steep walk. Good place to wander through greenery.
