It's worth going up even if you don't have any intention of even looking at the castle. The views are literally insane.. Tip: Go just as the sun starts coming down and you will get the most beautiful photos of the Pest side. The views...More

The Castle is a great spot to visit. Would recommend walking up rather than the lift or bus. There are great spots to stop for photos of the city.

We walked up to the top but you can get a train for 6 euros per person to the top. Lovely grounds. Views are amazing overlooking both sides of Budapest

It's OK to visit this place. You can either just wander around or visit some museums. It's okay to see this place but it's not something that I will go back to visit again.

The whole area around the castle is a must see. The views around the castle are outstanding. There is a good bus service from the city or you can get the funicular, not sure how much it is though.

It's quite an outstanding building, now housing a gallery and museum. We walked around the outside of the castle and enjoyed the views on a clear day.

Looking up to the castle from the banks of the Danube or looking down at the Danube and both sides of the river (Buda and Pest) from the castle is breathtaking and magnificent. Whether you do this early morning, during the day, late afternoon or...More

Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a

It's a short very enjoyable walk, plenty to see, make sure to visit the hospital in the rock on the other side, well worth the effort!
