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

This modern reproduction of a Hungarian tower provides a breathtaking view of the Danube and the city, particularly at night. It's near some excellent small restaurants.

It's a historical place of Budapest. You can find here also the Mathias Kirche. There is a beautiful wiew to the city from there. Inside is a restaurant. You can visit it during a sight-seeing tour.

“Beautiful view, wonderful architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Nothing to dislike, except for the crowds. The lookout points from the Buda side to the Pest side of the river were exceptional.
