“A nice day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Luckily it was a hot day when we went up to Castle Hill, so we were able to take advantage of the grassy areas for some sunbathing. The views were great - you could see the whole of the Pest side and the river Danube below. There was a bar there too which was quite expensive, you also had to pay to use the toilets up there. We went up on the funincular which was a good experience.

“If you can, climb the hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The climb is nice, albeit difficult. You can stop along the way and enjoy different spots to see the city. The view from the top is magnificent.

“Good for walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Anywhere in the Castle district is at the top of the hill, we did a walk one day and walked up and down the hill which is quite steep that said the castle district has lots of cobbled streets and parks surrounding it which makes for a pleasant walk.

“Castle Hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The Castle Hill area is worth a visit. Pre book a walking tour before you set off, it lasts 3 - 4 hours - both informative and you visit the best places.
