I do regularly visit "Lviv High Castle" - it's a big hill called : High Castle, (please note you won't see the actual castle ones you get to the top )- with stunning views of the city of Lviv, highly recommend to visit the place in the evening or dusk too, so you can see the city light up.

Best panorama Lviv view. It's hard to climb, but it cost that. Excellent end of party night even with bottle of delicious champagne as a nice tradition.

After a short walk up the stairs, there is a breathtaking view of all of Lviv. Our guide gave us the history of the city and this really helped us understand it. Friendly people at the top, got offered wine to share! Great idea of how large the city really is.

It might be quite difficult to get on the top of the hill (on foot only), but the view is worth it! There is the Ukrainian flag and a nice place for taking pictures. Might be very windy, since the area is high and open. However, the town looks gorgeous from there! But I hardly saw any gifts or snacks... More

Despite the name it isn't a massive walk to the top. The view is good but I prefer the view from the top of city hall. Still worth it.

When people go here for the first time they get disappointed cause the don't find a castle here. So just make sure you have clear expectations. I personally like this place. It's a nice hike not far from the city center. And it opens a great view on Lviv. Make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes and ready to do... More

It has a strong historical background, which is usefull to hear + it is the only place in the city, where you may watch all Lviv and recognize places you've just visited.

Actually there is not a Castle, It is more likely a Hill and at the top of the Hill you can see 360 degree view of Lviv. Must see place in Lviv

Mind you, there is no castle up there. the walk is fairly easy. I didn't much like the way the path was narrow and slippery and the bannister was very rickety. I do not recommend to go there as the view is not that interesting and the climb is not well paved and no security rails are in place.
