Located on the Friendship Hill in the center of Karlovy Vary, you can take the cable car to the top of the mountain, and you can see the scenery of the whole town. It has become one of the best viewing spots in the local area. The towering viewing tower was built on a hill at an altitude of 562 meters. At the end of the 19th century, locals discovered this beautiful hill with a panoramic view of the city. Later, it attracted many celebrities to stop and linger. The viewing tower is 35 meters high and you need to climb 150 steps to reach the viewing platform. Now you can climb the observation tower without climbing, and you can take the cable car every 15 minutes, and you can easily reach the top of the mountain in just 3 minutes, which is very convenient.
Specially built a scenic spot, above you can see the whole city
Diana Observation Tower is a very well-preserved building. You can climb the observation tower to see the full view of the old city.
After drinking too much hot spring water, it is more interesting to take the small cable car to the Diana Observation Tower. The cable car is in a small narrow alley. There is a fixed time for the departure. I was just in time. I was waiting for a few seconds. Because I was in a hurry, I almost ran to the viewing tower after reaching the top of the mountain. The elevator was broken. He climbed all the way upstairs to the tower, hurriedly looked at the next scene, and then ran to the cable car to catch up. If you have more time, you can stay at the top of the mountain for a while.
This tower is located on a hill outside Karlovy Vary. Because of the cable car, the traffic is very convenient. You can reach the top of the hill in a short while. There is an elevator in the tower, and you can go to the top of the tower to see the scenery in a while. Of course, if you have physical strength, you can climb the mountain and the tower on foot. In short, the atmosphere here is very casual.
The rail to the lookout tower as well as the lookout tower are super impressive. Only downside was the ques to reach this place but the wait was worth it in the end.
We stayed in Prague but traveled out by bus (2hrs) a bit tiering but worth it. A great day out with beautiful views. We went to the highest point where you can get a tram lift up and down. So scenic! ...
Great place to see the panoramic view of Karlove Vary. There is posibility to the top of the hill by small funicular and after to use a lift to reach the very top of Diana Lookout Tower.
Definitely worth to hike to the top or to take to cablecar to the tower, the view over Karlovy Vary and surrounding after 150 steps is your reward.
The funicular trip is short and the view from the lookout tower is superb (lift available). The restaurant below the tower is excellent.
