Buda castle is now not a castle but houses the Hungarian art gallery. Admission to the permanent portion of the art gallery is free with the Budapest card. The Hungarian art gallery was quite good but the icing on the cake is the visit to the dome and the view from the balconies. The view of the Danube and Pest... More

After the hustle and bustle of Pest, Budapest is a quiet viewpoint over the Danube and Pest not to mention the oft overlooked rest of the city to the West. Start off up the funicular - fun quaint and saves those legs. Take a one hour tour on a Segway from the Tourist Office by St Mattius church. They use... More

Buda Castle is a place well worth seeing. The design is attractive and it's sits perched on a hill with good views of the city.

A good way to see the castle would be to take the Hop On Hop Off bus tour (starting point at Erzsebet Ter). The bus passes many historical land marks, where you can decide if you would like to alight, view the attraction and get on the next bus. We did not stop at any of the earlier stops but... More

The building is very beautiful, impressive architecture and the view from the hill is mesmerizing. yet there is nothing else to it. Inside the building there is an art museum. yet I find it disappointing that there was nothing about the history of the place.

The Buda castle is certainly beautiful and I'm happy we saw it but to be honest I enjoyed it much more from Pest city center across the Chain Bridge at night. It is lit so very favorably that it's a delight to gaze at.

Definitely worth visiting the grounds and if time and interests permit the various museums on the property. Check out the free concert schedule during the summer. An imposing and massive structure unlike any other. A definite must if visiting Budapest.
