“Beautiful views and some lovely buildings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

The views across the river are lovely from here - it's a good spot for photos. Some beautiful buildings round the area but lots of work being carried out at the moment. Big tourist spot so try to be there out of the main tourist hours. Quite disneyesque in places!

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Walked up to the Fishermans Bastion which is situated next to Matthias Church, both are absolutely stunning, the Bastion looked like something from a disney fairytale. Definately worth visiting.

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Great view over the Danube and the city . Many beautiful buildings and lots of places to take photographs . While we were there the road works restricted public space but should be fine when work finishes .

“The Best View of the Danube in Budapest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is the area where most tourist arrive to take pictures of the Danube and enjoy a massive amount of historical joys with the St. Matthews Church (Mathias Church) and also the voluminous restaurants and coffee houses/bars. You will truly enjoy this feast of history and great sights to see and capture.
