Top ways to experience Camlica Hill
The area
Neighborhood: Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.

Perfect place to see the whole istanbul
Dec 2020 • Friends
We went to Camlica Hill at the sunset time, it was an awesome view, and also a great place to take beautiful photos up there.
We came back at night so we saw the night and nice lights of Istanbul, ships over the sea, the popular mosque and Ataturk bridge.

We walked up there. The weather was so clean, but a little cold.
I highly recommend it if you're gonna travel to this nice city.

Hill with great views and with a great Mosque
Sep 2020
Camlica hill is located on the Asian side, on an elevated position in Uskudar. You can reach it by ferry and then taxi (more scenic journey), or taxi all the way from European side via the Bosphorus bridge (also exciting as you cross the only bridge connecting two continents).
The Camlica hill is the best viewpoint in Istanbul, as from here you see almost the entire Bosphorus strait, as well the whole city. It's a favorite local's picnic spot, wedding place with an open air restaurant and famous gozleme (Turkish teriffic pastry) eatery.
Another new, outstanding attraction is the last year finished mind blowing Camlica Mosque, but you must read about it in a separate review.

What a place
Nov 2019
what a place, located in Uskudar in the Asian side of Istanbul.

it have that charming view of the Bosporus sea and all the European side.

The park is wonderful, you can see bride and groom coming over to take photos of their weddings.

The park has several playground for kids and some public chairs and tables for picnic.

Also there is a café and a restaurant, but it is averaged one and needs improvements.

however there are several restaurant before the entrance if you choose to dine here.

I recommend visiting the park then head to Kadikoy Bagdat street for dining.

What a view!!! Beautiful mosque, more beautiful, to me, than Hagia Sofia and Blue mosque... Amazing view and park to chill and just look at Istanbul from a hill. We accidentally found this, but I would add it as a must see in Istanbul.

What a wonderful view of Istanbul from the Asian side. We went in the night time and all the lights of the city just looked amazing. It was cold, but worth the visit.

Bosphorus View
Dec 2019 • Couples
Lovely park with great views over Istanbul and the Bosphorus. We visited in December but the gardens still looked great. Perfect place to get out of the busy city and enjoy peaceful surroundings.
