Very unique view. Ticket office a bit of an issue. You must walk up forty or so steps to get to ticket office. This wasn't well signed and caused confusion. Easy to climb, GREAT views from the top. Worth it all. Good value.

Visited the Old Town Bridge Tower after having a nice stroll one afternoon. Once at the top, there are lookouts which allowed good views over the Charles Bridge. On a clear day, you can definitely get some lovely photos.

Lovely old tower with a fascinating history and wonderful views over the Charles Bridge to the Castle. From up here you can view Prague city in all directions and all the landmark buildings and sights are highlighted.

No words can describe how beautiful this whole area is. Get there early if you want to miss all the tour groups. Also nice to wander around in the evening when every building is lit up.

At the end of the Charles Bridge near the old town is an imposing looking Gothic tower. We had been recommended to check this tower out so paid the fee to climb to the top. There are a lot of steps to climb and the...More

Thanks for the query and request for advice. These answers are pretty good. We would say the Old Town Tower, but this is a small city and easy to get around. We stayed at Hilton and the concierge willingly answered all of... More
