Love it, great views of the city, beautiful! The trek up the trails were quite difficult and not well marked but doable. Transport is available but we wanted to do the trails, next time will locate the available transport. Visited Dec 2011

This monument comes with an interesting story which is shared on the monument information placards. You are able to see the incredible view of the city from the top. You can reach this either by walking up the public street, via the trails from the Gellert Hotel or via tour bus. The trails are not for the faint hearted as... More

Great experience! When you climb the hill, you can see Budapest from the view of 360 Degrees. One of the most picturesque places!

Great walk to wonderful vistas across Budapest. You can see most of the city, the river and the bridges. The statue is impressive.

When you reach the top, you are rewarded with a breathtaking view. I recommend going there just when it shifts from day to night, as watching the many colored lights coming to life is... More
