“Should be on your list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Beautiful place, one should add to his or her travel list if coming over to Hungary. If you are lucky there will also be some sort of exhibition (it's quite common, especially during summer).

“Magnificent view worth the walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We walked up one of the many paths up the hill. Great views as you get higher and even better 360 degree views at the top. Best of all, you can do it for free!

“Great panaromic view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

If you visit Budapest this is a must see location! i strongly advise that you should go there before the sunset and see both day and night.The panaromic view is amazing.There is also a restaurant but it is fully booked so we could not get in.But if you want to see all Budapest in just one scene thats the perfect spot you sholud go!

“Dismal tourist attraction”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

This is a review of the citadel at the top of Gellert Hill, not the hilltop itself, with views of Budapest. The citadel charge is 1,200 Forint, for which you get access to the Nazi bunker, replete with unconvincing wax dummies and replica historical items, such as wooden hand grenades and a few Nazi pamplets. The views are no better from the citadel than from the street below. The reception from the staff was more depressing than the bunker itself.

“another lovely site to see the Danube river from a high point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

get your camera ready, have some photographs for the citadella walls, and then have "a lot" of shots for the beautiful view on the hill.
