“Great way to spend a spring morning.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

The climb was work, but relaxing in a way. The scenery was beautiful and didn't feel like I was in a city at all. The views are great from the top, just avoid all the people trying to sell you stuff. Make sure to take another route down to see more of the hill!

“Panoramic beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

the hop on hop off bus tour allows a 15 minute stop here for photo opportunities and this should be taken advantage of because the views of Budapest are stunning

“A long climb”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

It is one hell of a walk up there and to be honest, when you get there it is a little disappointing as the best view of the statue is really from below. Also, there is a lot of graffiti which is rather sad. However, it is on the way to the Statue of Liberty at the Citadella so not really that much out of your way!

“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Make sure to visit the fortifications - there's a war time German bunker which is well worth a visit
