Took the winding steep path, up the side facing the baths. Worn out by the time we got to the top, but it was definitely worth it. Was a great winters day and the views were fantastic.

If you want a terrific view of Budapest this is the place to go but be prepared for crowds. Surprisingly it is also a good place for souvenirs with some excellent offerings at reasonable prices. You can take an on/off bus to easily get there....More

It's quite a walk up a winding path but worth it once you get to the top. There are some statues half way up and plenty of places to stop and sit down for a breather!
