Charles IV Lookout (514 m above the sea level)


This beautiful Charles IV Pseudo-Gothic Lookout originates from the year 1877. The Charles IV Lookout offers the view from two levels. But before you can look around the landscape, you must conquer the spiral staircase and its 79 steps. You can enjoy the beautiful view throughout the entire year and at any time of the day or night. Admission to the observation tower is entirely free and the tower is open to the public.

The Charles IV Lookout can be reached by the funicular from the Grandhotel Pupp. Get off at the Jelení skok (Deer Leap) (or you can walk there from the Diana Tower) and follow the yellow signs, as though you were going towards the Postal Court. On the way you will come across a number of direction signs and orientation maps, bowers and rest areas.


Come to Karlovy Vary for treatment and discover the healing power of thermal springs.
