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.

  • Its a smaller version of Eiffel tower to get a nice view of Praha. There is a ticket to get to the top. There is an elevator to reach the top but usually busy with seniors so we had to take stairs. The view is nice from top but its not open. There are glass windows at the top.
  • 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.
