The Lesser Town area is a must-see in Prague. The tower itself is attractive, and there are several attractive buildings nearby. As you approach the tower on 'Karlův most' from the Charles Bridge, look out for the Devil’s Channel – part of the river Vltava,...More

The Lesser Town Bridge Tower is a very old tower the start of the Charles Bridge but there is nothing more than that.

Worth the entry and climb for views over the river and up towards the castle. The steps may not be suitable if you have mobility issues.

We climbed the 128 feet of the Lesser Town Bridge Tower. It provided a great view of the lesser town and old town. It is a must do when in Prague.

Cheap (100 crowns), great views up to the castle and also over the bridge. Didn't get to go over to the other part of the exhibit though.

This is a beautiful tower at one end of the iconic Charles Bridge. You will come here as everyone does and you will love it, just gorgeous. Beware big crowds.

January seems to be a good time to visit this tower. I came around 1:00 p.m. and had the place pretty much for myself. The views from the top are very enjoyable but expect to climb quite a few steps to get to the top.

Visited Wednesday 11th October and Thursday 12th October. The Tower is on one end of Charles Bridge and you have to walk under it as you cross over the bridge.
