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!

Definitely worth a visit. 90 czk return so excellent value. A really steep funicular railway and a lift to the top of the tower. Spectacular views across the town, forests and valleys.

Great views, having come up the funicular, it would be daft not to go up the tower. We took lift up but walked down. Don't do it if scared of heights. Once you are on the hill, it is free.

We climbed the hill to get there, it was already dawning, so not many people. Got to it via zoo (do not ask how). There were 2 peacocks - regular blue and white one - so was fun to see them walking around being fed....More

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...More

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.
