Kamzík

The name of this 439-meter hill overlooking Bratislava.

The name of this 439-meter hill overlooking Bratislava likely comes from what it once was called in German - Gemsenberg or Wild Goat Hill, after the stray goats from the city that still wander the slopes of the hill.
Standing just below the hilltop is the 1970s television tower, which replaced an earlier one built in 1956.

The 70-meter-high tower has a café and restaurant offering a panoramic view of the entire Bratislava area, and in good weather even the Alps are visible. The tower is one of the symbols and a landmark of the capital

Kamzík is a major tourist center, close to the Hotel West and Koliba Expo, as well as near a bobsled run, ski lift, a number of cabins and the parking area. Since 1972 a chair lift has run to Kamzík from Železná Studnička (Iron Well) Valley. Kamzík can be reached via an asphalt-paved road running past Koliba which cars are allowed to use, or take the Bratislava City Transit tram line to the Koliba stop. A lift also goes from Koliba to the peak.
