Twin Peaks is a pair of hills 279 meters above sea level in the central part of San Francisco. Equally high peaks are called „Eureka“ and „Noe“. It is the second highest point in San Francisco. Twin Peaks is one of the most famous and most visited places in the city. It's a great way to see the city from a different perspective.

Circular lookout

The hills offer wonderful circular views of the city and its surroundings. Twin Peaks is therefore a popular tourist destination and also an important part of the city's history. Native Californians used this site to observe game before hunting. Due to the open space to the ocean, it is often windy and there are clouds that make the view difficult.
