I left from the mahart boat station, just in front of the "little Princess" statue and the Inner City parrish Church. It leaves just past Pier 10 and 11, where you can take boat trips on the Danube. I went in late September, and it was colder than any locals could remember. Near 0 C when I left. Did I... More

I'm not a city-person - I was sure of that again in the minute I got to Visegrad (from Budapest). If you want to get away from the city for a while, this is the place to visit. The view ... it's magical. Really. Castle itself is historical and I liked it - it was somewhat calm. Ticket 1400 HUF... More

Really great views from above. There are 2 ways up. The first one is a steep path through the forest starting right from the Solomon tower. I'd recommend taking this one, as it's much shorter and protected from direct sunlight. Unless it is raining or was raining the day before, as the path becomes very slippery and dirty. And do...

Hmmmm, seeing the reviews here some people mistake the Visegrad Citadel (or Cloudcastle) with the Buda Citadel on the Gellert Hill in Buda ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citadella ). This attraction here is the Cloudcastle in Visegrad, north Hungary, overlooking the Danube turn, about 46km north to Budapest. I've been here many times before, we frequently came here taking a walk and enjoying... More

It is a great little destination with a lots of history. Beautiful view from the top. Take change with you thou (Forint) because everything cost extra around here. The ticket for the panoptikum cost more. Our friend wanted to try to shoot a bow and arrow, that was 200Ft. There is a horse for kids to go around on and... More

I walked up to the Citadel from Visegrad, picking up the trail from behind the church. It was a 45 minute walk up with quite a good path and it was well worth the effort. There is small entry fee to the Citadel, it had fantastic views of Visegrad, Kagymaros, the Danube and surrounding countryside. There is a small museum... More

The walking trail provides a good work out (we are in our late70s), there is also road access, The experience at the top is superb with great displays on the history of the early Hungarian kings. The view of the Danube Bend is superb.
