How to get there
Route 1: You may reach the lookout if you start from the Hot Spring in the centre of Karlovy Vary and walk up the forest paths and the stone stairs leading along the Chamois statute.
Route 2: An easier alternative is to take the Diana funicular from Grandhotel Pupp to the Jelení skok (Deer Jump) intermediate station and follow the comfortable path that leads along the Myslivna (Gamekeeper's Lodge) Sanatorium to Peter's Height and the lookout arbour.
History of the structure
The wooden arbour on a rock bill near Jelení skok (Deer Jump) directly above the spa centre is probably the oldest lookout structure in Karlovy Vary. The arbour was built in 1804 upon the order of Mr. Mayer, a wealthy Viennese merchantand a Karlsbad native, according to whom the arbour is also known as Mayerův gloriet (Mayer's Gloriette).
