“Superb area and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Take the ventricular train up to the top for 1000 fts, (£3) and then take your time to stroll around the streets and the castle area. many snack bars and restaurants which are good prices. Well worth planning to spend most of a day in this area of Budapest.

“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Judging by the queue for the railway, it would have been quicker to walk, but was worn out at the end of the day. Then I saw the cost of the tickets would have bought dinner for one of us, decided to give it a miss, view or no view. Too much still to see without wasting time being taken for a ride (in both senses of the term).

“Buda Castle in Budapest, Hungary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Went to the castle by walking from Parliament building. Crossing over the Danube via the Chain Bridge. One can reach the castle via tour bus, or can walk up all the way up. I choose to walk as its not difficult to do so, plus the weather on that day is very nice except a bit gloomy. The view from Buda Castle is simply amazing! Worth to visit. And one of the must-go for those who have limited time in hands to do city tour.
