“I recommend boarding the funicular and getting down on foot. The landscape is very beautiful.”

Diana Lookout Tower

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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!

If the weather is beautiful and you like hiking, climb the trail on foot. Visit all the points on the map and have fun. Diana Tower is not great, the wind blows strongly. If you can shoot, then you will have beautiful landscapes. I do not know if there is anymore, but next to the tower is a butterfly exhibition. Make all the money!

Get the cable car near the Grandhotel Pupp or walk by foot. But you surely you have to enjoy this view from the tower down on Karlovy Vary. Climbing the stairs of the tower or using the elevator is for free, too.
Near the tower is a Restaurant and a very small minizoo with sweet pigs and horses. So it is recommended for families, too.

We took the funicular (mountain train) up and we went down by foot. It has been a very nice experience. The way up in the train is exciting, the view from the train is we travelled with young kids so it was thrilling. We walked to the top of the tower, exquisite view. Then the way back to town is easy and enjoyable. The only minus is that the signs and indications are all in Checz, and people met on the way didn't speak English, but as usual, we find out way there

It had been snowing so a hike up and down would not have been suitable. Instead we took the funicular. The view at the top over Karlovy Vary was gorgeous. There is a restaurant up there as well.

We were lazy to walk up, so we took the Lanovka (mountain train). The cost was 80CZK for the two of us one way to the top(about €3,20). Please note they only accept CZK there.
On the top we climbed the tower and enjoyed the crisp and fresh air and of course the beautiful view.
Then we went to the mini zoo next to the Diana Restaurant and then to the restaurant.
Finally we walked down, back to the city on a really scenic route with multiple options to stop and see the scenery. There is also a restaurant near the Deer's Jump.
Every minute of it was worth it, don't miss it.
