The Petřín Lookout Tower (Petřínská rozhledna) is a 63.5-metre tall tower in Petřín Park in Prague.

The tower was inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and although only one fifth of its height, it has the advantage of being situated on a hill.

The hill is served by a funicular.

Opened in 1891. Architect: Vratislav Pasovský. Engineers: František Prášil and Julius Souček.
