The fenicular stopped working. Very pleasant way is walk up the hill around the Cathedral & the palace. No restaurants up there.

The funicular is not working. The ground is eroding immediately to the right of the lift. Grass is all washed away. You can still walk up the hill for good views.

Traveling with small kid with stroller. Was planning to go to castle with castle hill lift, but was not in operation. Disappointed.

Lift out of order when I visited. Apparently there had been a landslide next to the funicular. Walk up to the hill is quite short, but steep. View of the city is good.

Its a short but steep walk to get to the top of the hill, but its worth it. There is also a lift if needed. The view is very good, to both sides of the river, the old and the new.

currently the castle, the funicular and the museum at the top are all closed. We wee told that there were no plans to re-open as the hill itself it crumbling and is unsafe for visitors.

Castle Hill is my favourite part of Vilnius along with the Old Town. The views of the town are stunning from up there and the climb is easy and has excellent paths. From Castle Hill you can see not only the castle itself but the...More
