Overview

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!

There are several paths you can take both up and down and there is even a funicular that takes you most of the way up if you are physically challenged. Signs are posted all over town indicating which way to go. There is a hidden...More

Well worth the effort of getting to the tower. Nice views of the valley. You can either take the funicular or hike. Fun to watch the Peacocks roaming around the top.

On the top of Friendship hill sits Diana lookout tower. I would recommend going up via the many forest trials, easy to follow and there are some hidden gems there as well (ex shrines). You can get to the top of the tower by taking...More

While the Diana Funicular you need to take to reach this tower isn't all that cheap, but the view at the top of this tower is amazing! We saw the sun rays coming down through the clouds and illuminating villages in the distance. The breeze...More

Catching the cable at to top. You have the butterfly house, little zoo and a couple of peacocks to look out for. The actual tower provides a stunning view of the surrounding area. We walked back down which isn’t the best signed walk, but if...More

It is a very nice tourist attraction. You can see the whole city from the tower. The funicular is operated very efficiently, so do not bother about the line, it is going quite fast.
