It's one of the highlights of our Budapest trip. Great view from the top. You can get there from hop on hop off bus, local buses, or take the cabe car lift up.

Arrived up the hill to the changing of the Guard. Myself and my companion independently thought it was something out of a Mel Brooks set. Lovely site with interesting history

“A nice walk in the past....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

One of the most beatiful part of Budapest from Matthias Church to Rondella of the Castle.
The church is renovated and is great with the nice tiles on the roof.
The Fishermens Bastion is a unique building with a stunning view to Pest. Some little, narrow streets with houses from the XVIII-XIX. century. Walking on, you can see the Sandor Palace, the residence of the President of the Republic. Some steps to the Funicular, which goes to the Chain Bridge. Walking on, we enter the Royal Castle and court. The Castle is the home of the Hungarian National Gallery and some other museums. In the evening the illumination is extremely wonderful and breathtaking.
You can see almost every part of Budapest in floodlight.
