We queued for 20 minutes for a 2 minute ride. Great view but nothing you couldn't see at the top.
Good excuse for an ice cream though
You get a bit of hassle from the touts trying to sell you alternatives. The walk would have...More
We have done other funiculars that were much longer, much steeper and less costly, but it was still a unique way to get up to the Castle. The cost was 1200 HUF/person, which is $5.75 CAD for a one-way ticket. The views from the back...More
Sure you can take other modes of transportation or even walk up to castle hill. But why do that when you can make the experience unique by riding a 100 yo FUnicular? Of course you will have a shell out a few Forints but for...More
If you’re a tourist in the area, or unable to climb stairs, this may be for you. For 1100ft a person you can get a one way ticket to the top. In off season we waited about 20-30 minutes in line for a ticket so...More
A funicular railway up and down to and from Castle Hill is what the guide book said. Never seeing a funicular railway before we decided to for go our walking and take a trip. There is a minimal cost for this 2-3 minute journey. There...More
1,800 HUF for a return trip on the Buda Hill Funicular was surely the best thing I spent money on while in Budapest last weekend. The ride itself is spectacular if a little brief and as a fan of engineering I loved it. The views...More
The easiest and quickest, well as long as there isn't a line for tickets, way to Buda caste, Fisherman's Bastion and the historic area so really a touristic 'must do'. Expensive for the short ride and the views from the car on the ride are...More
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.

That sounds perfectly feasible to me. Be aware that the funicular is reckoned the most expensive journey in Europe per metre: frankly I would walk or take a bus, especially if you have a BKK pass - the pass doesn't cover the funicular. An alternative might be, from Szechenyi Furdo take the M1 (the foldalatti) to Deak Ter and then get on a 16 bus, which will take you up into the Var. When you have finished in the Var walk down the steps to Clark Adam Ter and then walk across the Lanc Hid...More
