I didn't think it was worth a visit. But there aren't many things to do in Karlovy so might as well visit the tower. I was there for 10 minutes. The view wasn't all that great.

if you are in an average physical condition, then you can walk to the top. Otherwise, use the cable cab and stroll down on foot. Not very expensive ride, considering the excellent view.

On of the places which must be seen in Karlovy Vary. Fortunately there is a lift inside the tower. It is better to walk uphill, because when the cable tram arrives, there can be queues for the lift.
