Diana Observation Tower in Karlovy Vary


Category: Lookout and Observation Towers Region: Karlovy Vary and its surroundings Town: Karlovy Vary


The Diana Tower was built in 1914 as an excursion destination for the spa visitors of Karlovy Vary. A café with a restaurant for 250 persons were built in the vicinity of the tower on the hill known as “Výšina přátelství” (Friendship Height). You may reach the tower either by walking up the forest paths or by taking the funicular from Grandhotel Pupp.

Thanks to an extensive reconstruction of the observation tower in 1997, you may choose whether to reach the lookout gallery located at the height of 25 metres by climbing 150 stairs or more comfortably by a lift.

The lookout gallery offers a view of almost the entire city of Karlovy Vary, the lovely valleys of the Ohře and Teplá Rivers, and you may also admire most of the excursion destinations in the vast spa woods. The north horizon is dominated by the range of Krušné hory (Ore Mountains) with its highest peak Klínovec. The south and east views offer a panorama of Doupovské hory (Doupov Mountains) and Slavkovský les (Slavkov Forest).
