If you get a chance, take a leisurely stroll across the Chain bridge both in the day and in the night. The views are really spectacular.

Leaving the castle and taking the funicular down, this bridge was closest to the Pest side. The bridge has ample, safe walking areas. It is decorated with lions. It’s easy to take pictures of and from the bridge.
