“A must-visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Lots of things to see and do. Go early to avoid tourist crowds, or after sunset for beautiful night views.

“Nice city view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Once you have climbed the castle hill you have earned yourself a nice view over the city and the Danube river. The streets up there are ofbetter quality than anywhere else in town. One reason for this might be the bus loads of tourists who march through the streets, however as this is one of the top attractions there is nothing else to expect. Walking around is still fun with the superb view. There are many restaurants on top so you can dine while enjoying the scenery.

“Beautiful area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

The Castle Hill area of Budapest was particularly beautiful. We took the short funicular ride up to the Castle, which saved many steps. I suggest good walking shoes up in this area as cobblestone streets are abundant. Beautiful at night, less crowd.

“Good views and lots to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

A lot to see up here, it is possible to get up without using the funicular but where is the fun in that?! Amazing views of Pest from here too and a nice walk around the old town.
