Petrin Lookout Tower, probably one of the most imposing landmarks of Prague, was built as part of the Jubilee Exhibition in 1891 and is loosely inspired by its famous cousin in Paris; the Eiffel Tower. It is 63.5 meters high, and 299 steps lead to its peak, which is about the same, (if not a bit higher) altitude as its Parisian counterpart. The view from its top overlooks not only the whole city, but on a clear day you can see nearly all of Bohemia. On a clear summer day, the view is magnificent and the sunsets are even more breathtaking. Try and spot Snezka , Czech’s highest peak and if you do, be assured that you have visited on the best day.

This was amazing went there at sunset we took the cable car up there which was quirky and fun. The tower its self has 600 steps to the top but there is a lift for those who don't fancy the climb. The tower does move but it's perfectly safe and the staff are brilliant it's an extra 60kc to go up in the lift but it's worth it if you struggle with stairs the views are stunning and well worth going to see. Takes about 3 hours in total to travel up to the tower plus going up and down again.
Great place to see the historical part of Prague and the park from the height. Also nice when it's dusk. It can be crowdy here, there's a lot of tourists who want to get up. There are two options of tickets also: to come on foot or to go by elevator. Also you can visit the cafe there.
Stunning views, great experience! Climbed all the steps and felt amazing. It’s like being on the top of the world, just 299 steps up. Love it
An overall enjoyable experience except for getting on the tram. You need the exact change in coins or use a card to buy a ticket.A little chaotic as everybody were swapping small denominations of money to buy a ticket.But after that ordeal it was a great experience beautiful views as you go up. The tower itself is spectacular although I didn't go up just watched the youngsters enjoying themselves.
I really enjoyed the view from the Petrin Tower. It was only 150Kc to gain access to the top. Very over crowded, but definitely worth it for the spectacular view you get of Prague. The best way to make it to the top of Petrin Hill is by the cable car. Just purchase a ticket inside the office, and make your way to the top. It was only 32Kc. You could try and walk it, but it would take twice as much effort. Much easier just to take the cable car. There are beautiful gardens at the top of the hill too, I would suggest walking back down to street level, and exploring everything there is to see.
