If you have a tourist travel ticket (public transport) you can use this on the funicular railway as well. This gets very busy and the funicular is very small, so the queues can get quite long. I recommend to arrive early before 10am to miss the crowds. Take the funicular to the mid station, get off and get a drink... More

Took the funicular up to the Petrin tower. You can use your metro ticket or buy another one there. Tip: If there is a line up & you don't have a ticket just go into the ticket building & stay left....there are 3 machines on the wall for tickets. Then just get into the lineup for ticket validation & you'll... More

There was a bit of a queue to go up in the funicular and then a bit of a queue to but the admission tickets, 160czk plus 60czk if you want to use the lift. The lift does not stop at the mid section. There are two sets of spiral stairs running round the outside of the tower, one upwards,... More

The great thing about this place is the stunning views from the top of the tower. It's quite a trek from the street unless you take the teleferic

You don't go there for sure, so we can be there alone, when we want to go somewhere with that beautiful Prague's view and many meadows to sit and chill ;)

It was a good place for picnic or walking. The hill has observatory and parks. The Petrin tower wasn't very tall but charge $150, so I didn't went up there. They have mirror house and magic house too. It s a good place for summer time. If you have time, you can walking down the hill. The view was beautiful
