Architecturally interesting and a great spot to take some nice travel photographs from. The surrounding attractions make the trip worthwhile. Buy the hop on hop off bus passes they are absolutely the best way to travel around the sights of Budapest. A city worth more than one visit

It's every bit as beautiful as those tourist brochure pictures. But do try... More

Really the absolute best place to get great views of Pest with the Parliment Building and Danube.Unfortunately it is usually crowded. Get there early if at all possible.
