The climb to the top of the Citadella is tough, especially if you are not used to physcial activity. But the views at the top more than make up for the same. I would suggest going late in the evening as the same allows one...More

We visited at night time and although the views up there are AMAZING we didn't feel safe walking up. The trail was poorly lit and felt unsafe during the evening. The views are really great - you see all of the city lit up including...More

We climbed up to the citadella just before sunset and were rewarded with outstanding views of the city and a lovely pink sky. Worth it! Take water and sensible shoes as it’s quite a climb! We went at 1900 and it was still 33 degrees...More

Absolutely stunning views from the top! Thought it may be quite difficult but it really wasn't that bad. There are a few cafes at the top, as well as a lovely park, children's parks and some market stalls. Definitely worth the climb!!! Definitely worth a...More

Oh wow what a great place to eat, with the views too. We were very cold and this food gave us some energy. So nice, please try it, big enough to share too.

The main thing that stood out was the view. The trip to citadella is worth it just to experience the view. It is unreal! If you’re travelling in the winter, be prepared to embrace the cold as it gets extremely cold at the top.

We walked all the way from the Chain Bridge. Stopped a couple of time as there are hundreds of steps but we'll worth the walk. As soon as you get there you are confronted by a man and associates trying to make you play the...More

This was hands down the most expensive place we ate in Budapest. Rubbish food, very poor mulled wine, and attacked by resident pigeons during. And did I mention very expensive? Don't do it. Wait until you get down again instead. Really. It's bad.

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being
