It is worth taking this iconic railway up to the castle. Try and get in the lowest carriage for the best views. Good value and don’t forget to ask for a discount if you qualify though you do need appropriate identification.

If you are going to the Buda Castle area, this is a great way to avoid the stairs. There usually is a line and it is a bit expensive. Best to say, it serves the purpose..

The only other funicular I have ridden is in Niagara Falls. That one offers simple seating and amazing views. Clearly the Buda Hill Funicular is a great piece of history, but it the views are very disappointing as you descend. The car is divided into...More

Nice way to get to the castle rather than walking. Takes less than a minute. Nice experience in old vintage carriage. We got our tickets as part of a package from our Big Bus so we didn’t have to queue for tickets at the booth.

No, but it is not expensive and certainly better than trying to walk up.
