“Enjoyable views”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Great views of the city - we didn't go in but it was great to go to the top on the funicular, and then walk around the top and see the views. A very easy walk back down the hill and into the city again. Highly recommended!

“Great to see from afar, nothing much to do once you're there”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The Castle Hill looks great from the opposite bank but once you are actually there there's not really much to see or do. None of the museums sounded very attractive so I just saw the buildings from outside. Plus the fact that the Palace was destroyed and rebuilt probably explains why the Castle Hill lacks the feeling of "oldness'' one would expect... Apart from tourists, the place seemed to have no "real" everyday life.

“A mUST SEE!! Left a great impression on our kids too!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

A must see in Budapest. Even my kids were amazed. Don't miss the views of
The Danube at night. Amazing! We all came home giddy about our day that was spent at the Budapest Christmas market, all of old Buda and Castle Hill.

“Charming”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Great for a stroll and a view of the city below. Fisherman's Bastion and St. Matthew's church were not to miss.

“Great Views”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We walked up and it is worth the walk as the views are very good at the top. There are also cafes and resturants in and around this area so you can grab some food and drink too.

You can also get the Funicular up/down.
