We used this impressive structure to locate ourselves every so often as you can get lost in this city. I’m sure you do get amazing views from here but we decided against using it as the queues were always very long and we found an alternative option!

We bought the cheap daily tram tickets that allow unlimited journeys and went to both sides of the river. You can easily get high enough to get amazing views of this wonderful city without the expense.

The Budapest's Eye is highly recommended for both children and adults.
We recommend to arrive as early as possible in the morningin order to avoid the long queues. The wheel could well be the first stop for a city tour day.
Despite the overpriced ticket that some tourists complain about, don't forget that this is a spectacular city view attraction from a Bird's eye view.
Worth every penny.
Please note that pensioners are eligible for discounted tickets.

Great experience for the kids, with a great view of city centre, the surrounding buildings as well as parliaments, the Bascilia and Buda Castle. The ride lasts 5 minutes or so and is faurly wirth the cost. Prepared to pay about HUF 8000 for a family of four.

A blonde lady from the staff started yelling at us that we are not allowed 5 people in the same cabin, even if we proved to her, with documents, that we are family and all vaccinated. The discussion lasted so long that a huge queue formed and we lost all fun.
Before enterong the premises, at tiket point, we presented all the passports and vaccine certificates.
Too bad for money, a ride is still expensive (10 euros / adult and 6 euros / child).

The line was confusing and a little disorganized which caused for unhappy queuing, especially with some line cutters. When you've been standing out in the cold for an hour, people tend to stop being polite (if they ever were). But, the actual ride is worth it. The views were spectacular and you go around a few times so you really get to enjoy what you're seeing. We went at night, but I bet the experience is worthwhile at any time of day.

Fun to take pictures above the city. I went when it first opened up for the day and enjoyed looking out over the city and taking pictures. It is in a public park and many families with children were enjoying this attraction.

In center of Budapest you can find (and ride) Budapest Eye. A smaller version of "the other capital city Eye", but yet fun to ride it.
On-boarding is well done, there are 4-5 gates to get in and you can even get Priority Boarding :).
Cabins are quite small, usually they get 2 pairs, but this add more comfort to the ride.
Enjoy!

I ride the Eye at least once every time I visit Budapest. I've never experienced rude staff on the Budapest Eye. I find them to be welcoming.
I love the view from the Eye - day or night, it's a great activity that doesn't cost too much. The line moves quickly and you'll enjoy three rotations before disembarking.
If you're there in the summer, be sure to go have a froccs afterwards at the outdoor bar.

Budapest Eye is a Ferris wheel erected in Erzsébet Square in 2017. It is 65m in height (the largest Ferris wheel in Europe), with 42 partially open cabins. The view from the top of the Eye is panoramic. It is illuminated at night, and on the 15th of March is lit up in the national tricolor. The ride to the top takes 8-10 minutes, and one ticket is 3 revolutions. The Eye is operates year round. It opens at 10am, and closes at 11pm Mon & Tues, midnight Wed &Thurs, 1am Fri and Sat and midnight on Sunday. A ticket (3 revolutions) costs 3,000 HUF with discounts for children, seniors and students. I thought the view from the nearby dome on St. Stephen's basilica was better, more stable (clearer pictures) and higher (96m), and I could stay on the dome platform as long as I wanted.

Stumbled across this by chance but thought it looked pretty good and was not disappointed. Not too bad value wise and you also get really good views of the city. We went up at night and the City buildings are all lit up very nicely making it a worth while stop.
