Owner description: Lovingly restored after being reduced to rubble during World War II, this picturesque area is located in the heart of medieval Budapest, which is characterized by cobblestone streets, narrow alleys and lovely squares surrounded by baroque and classical buildings.

This is the fairy tale part of Budapest. The best views of the Pest side are here. The castle is no longer there so don't go looking for it. The buildings are now galleries and the home of the president but still worth the visit. Lots of improvement work going on in the area but it didn't spoil things for us. The area will only be better for it.

This place is a cultural theme park...great food (resturants and cake shops), beautiful churches, other sights obviously the castle (a couple of hours), labyrinth, hospital cave, museums. Get the Funicular to the top if you're legs can't take the hike!!

If you don't go anywhere else in Budapest make a beeline for the Castle district, WOW! what a view! The changing of the guard is different with the addition of drumming!

Some options are available to go to the castle : take the bus - nothing spectacular will happen, take the funicular- rapid, old, authentic or stroll up (or down) to the castle - easy, plenty of time to enjoy the views, cheap, healthy. Do it if you have time. Choose the funicular if you are in a hurry.
