“View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Even though is quite high, the climbing is worth to see view of Pest. I think is wort to see during the day and during the night when the city is iluminating.

“Beautiful area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Wonderful architecture surrounded by cobbled streets and amazing views over the city. Lots of photo opportunities. Make sure you have a good walk around and don't just stick to the main area by the Fisherman's Bastion. 'Eyewitness Travel' gives you a nice little walking route around it which pretty much covers it all. Had lunch at a nice little cafe on the defensive walls overlooking the city. A must see area when in Budapest.

We used the funicular to go up to the castle and then , having looked around the area we walked down through the grounds back to the Chain Bridge.

“A Great Way to Start”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Take the funicular up to Castle Hill. It's a great way to begin your tour of Budapest. Superb views, cobbled streets, quiet alleyways, cafes, bars and restaurants. Take a full morning to stroll around and soak up the atmosphere and the history of this splendid hill.
