Not much to see since there's no real castle there - just a hill and some part of the walls, but the hill is wort a walk for a nice view of the city.

Perched above the city this area gives 360 degree views of Lviv, from the historic area to the commercial districts across the rail tracks. Maybe even catch a glimpse of Poland in the far distance on a crisp clear day. We were dropped off by Uber at the base of the stairs to the top. We hiked on a snowy and icy staircase, but the city workers were trying to salt and sand the walkway for safety. The hike is up many flights of stairs and may not be suitable for some. At the top is a round open viewing platform with a large Ukrainian flag and a tv antenna a few hundred feet away that you can see from all over the city below. There is a snackbar and souvenirs and pay-use portable toilets.

It'd be great if not the poor visibility. Stunning place for not so long walk, cheap and so so warm wine.

Lviv High Castle is a very good place to see the city with a good view. You will get tired going up, but it worths it.
