Best view of the city!

Amazing 360° view of the city, which is wonderful on a clear day, and not too bad on a cloudy day, either! As others have said, no castle remains, but it's a great walk up, and... read more

No castle at all. It just a small ruins of a castle but if you climb the hill, it will be worth it. You could enjoy the view of the city..

It's a nice walk uphill. The view is nice,you can see the city in its entirety. Once there was a castle, but unfortunately not anymore.

A nice uphill walk. Great exercise for sure :-) The view from up there is nice so one can wonder what must have been like when there was actually a castle in there. To my taste, it misses a bit of the touristy stuff (binoculars, pointers to what you're looking at, etc). Without that, in my opinion, it's just a... More

Definitely wear comfortable shoes and be ready to walk. Fantastic 360 degree view of Lviv. We went at night and it was spectacular.

Very popular place not only for tourists but for many locals. It is very nice hiking trip, takes around 45 minutes-1hr to get up the High Castle (Vysokuy Zamok on Ukrainian). Beautiful panorama view, especially around 6pm when lights are softer( for photography lovers). The best place to see whole Lviv city.

It was a beautiful day so we decided to take a walk to the high castle. It is very steep and the pavement is not very even. Overall it was fun, but there is nothing written in English that explains what you are looking at.

It was exhausted to go up the hill while you literally were slicing on the ice, but the moment you reached it, it's unbelievable.
