To get to these gardens, you ride a cable car from street level to the top. Once up there, the Petrin Observation Tower, built in 1891 and modeled on the Eiffel Tower, affords a magnificient view. There is also an observatory and two formal gardens. At street level there is a rose garden planted around a children's maze. Through a gate in the ancient wall (the "Hunger Wall") lies a lush, quiet garden with a small waterfall and pond with many varieties of flowers. This is possibly one of the most idyllic spots in the city.
