“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We stayed in the Castle Hill area on a recent trip to Budapest. The views over the Danube and " Pest " area of the city are amazing. Walking over the cobblestone streets seeing the many statues, fountains and churches is awe inspiring. I recommend taking a guided tour of the area to really appreciate the history.

“A view to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

My daughter & I took the funicular up to the castle area, where we enjoyed the fabulous views across the whole of the plain of Budapest to the mountains beyond, where it meets with Asia .
We very much enjoyed visiting the church where the restoration is almost complete. Every detail was meticulous, including the restoration of fabrics in the Oratory. How sad that so much was razed to the ground during the war, but how wonderful that so much throughout Budapest has been restored to its former glory. How resilient the Hungarian people have had to be throughout its turbulent history. At the Fishermans Bastion we were treated to an impromptu violin performance by two elderly local men, clearly enjoying making their music. What a wonderful treat.
We were able to take the number 16 bus from the church area to Pest - me travelling free as an EU senior citizen! ( I don't even get this privilege at home)

“Do not miss the SPY MUSEUM next to the castle. It is somewhat hard to find- of course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

The guides are wonderful and you will learn the history of spying - see the machinery that was used- radios- direction finders, etc.

By the way- the walk down the hill from the castle is 10 minutes and lovely- you do not need the funicular. The 16 bus on the opposite side of the chainbridge will take you right to the castle. Nobody tells you this in your hotel.

We found the Budapest card worthwhile.
