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!

Funicular to the Diana Complex just off the Grandhotel Pupp costs ~3 Euros and take less than 5 minutes. Slow elevator up tower or bypass with 150 stairs. Nearby pup and food reasonable.

The view was nice but to be honest I expected a far better one... Maybe my expectations were too high. Anyway, it was worth visiting and the forest all around with tiny pathces of the town was beautiful.

It´s easy to get up to the tower by using the funicular. It is also possible to climb up the mountain by foot or even with bicycle, wich some people did. When you have seen enough of the area, there is a good café nearby.

Me and my girlfriend were really surprised by the great view when we visit the tower. Really worth the money taking the funicular up to this watchtower. Afterwards we walked down one of the nice paths. Could be open a bit longer in the evening.
