5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The whole area is well worth a visit take the funicular to the top and take in the stunning views. There are nice coffee shops and the fishermans bastion is a very nice walk.

“A step into the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This place gives several attractions. There's a great view to the Danube and all of Budapest; the building in the castle area really gives you the feeling as if you're walking in ancient times...

“Too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Although the castle hill area is very nice to walk around, I would not eat or buy anything here. It is very expensive and over priced. There are a few art galleries worth looking. The hospital on the rocks is a must see.

“Amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The epic views of the city from above may remind you of Paris, with church bells ringing in the distance, and both tourist and working watercraft chugging along under the scenic bridges.
We wished the fog had lifted sooner so that we could have lingered for longer, but now we have all the more reason to come back.
Must be a very romantic view on a warm summer night...?

“Charming glimpse into what was...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

While not as over-touristed as other cities, thats not for lack of beauty. Castle Hill appears to actually be lived on by locals which adds to an atmosphere of authenticity. Walk up, and back down again... you'll get a better idea of just how pretty it all is.
