If you are fit, then walk up through the park to the Petrin Tower. I, and most others, took the funicular railway instead.
You can walk up the tower or, for an extra 55 koruna, take the internal lift. Well worth it for the view.

Over priced tram ride to top.

Mini copy of Eifel tower is boring.

Not much to see at top of hill.

Nice sights on way down.

I decided to venture up Petrin hill one evening just for a quick look, and turned out to be one of my favourite vistas! I took the funicular tram up (on a 3 day pass, so no issues with time) and wandered over to the tower. I paid to walk up the tower (105 I think?) and went all the way to the top. What great views!! I was pleasantly surprised and got some great pics. The park itself was buzzing with families or groups of friends having picnics on the hillside which looked like a fabulous way to see in the evening. A nice break from the hussel and bustle of the city below! Highly recommended!

Very nice to get a break from the bustle below, and the tower has an amazing view of the city and the Bohemian mountains in the distance. Prices are reasonable too, presumably because the locals come here to relax.

A trip to Petrin Hill is a great way to get away from the crowds and relax for an hour or two. The funicular ride to the top of the hill is part of the fun of the visit. While camera buffs may want to go to the top to take photos of the surrounding city, the views from the top are blocked by trees. However, the funicular makes a stop on the way to the top and from there you can take terrific photos of Prague.

The top of the hill has a garden with thousands of roses. It is quiet and many couples and mothers with young children go there to take a quiet stroll. You can visit Petrin Tower, which is a scale model of the Eiffel tower. For a fee, you can climb to the top of the tower. Or else, just sit under it and enjoy a cold drink.
