Overview

Petrin hill (formerly one of King Charles’ vineyards) offers beautiful views of the city and several attractions for the whole family. The hill is located close to the river, Prague Castle, and many restaurants and cafes.
The park is a popular place among tourists and locals. They come to enjoy the view, take their dogs for a walk, and having a picnic in the summer.

It is easy to recognize Petrin Hill thanks to a large tower, reminding Paris’ famous Eiffel Tower. This is actually a TV tower, you can climb on to view even more incredible views.
The park includes several different attractions, and we think it’s a place you must go to when visiting Prague.

Additional Information

The attractions in the park include the Rose Garden, or rosarium, at the top of the hill, Nebozízek Garden, Seminary Garden, the Mirror Maze (a labyrinth), the Petrín Observation (resembles a small Eiffel Tower), restaurants, and more.

There are numerous ways to get to the park, but taking the funicular up the hill and walking down is recommended. The Petrin Funicular runs from 9 a.m. to around 11:30 p.m. year-round. You can use it using the same tickets like the rest of the Prague public transportation system. Getting to the top takes about 4 minutes. While it is free to enter the park, some of the attractions charge a modest fee. The funicular departs from Ujezd street in Lesser Town (Malá Strana), near the Ujezd tram stop.

Best Time To Visit

The best seasons to visit Prague are spring and fall when the weather is mild, and there are fewer tourists.
Summertime means warmer temperatures and many tourists. It also means higher hotels and flights rates.
Prague also enjoys many visitors during the Christmas season, but note that you should expect a fair amount of snow and low temperatures.

* Remember to check the weather forecast few days before the trip and before heading to the airport. *
