“Great History Lessons”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Great history lessons to be had, changing of the guard at the presidents offices was interesting, great views of the city but I cant help but be reminded of the square from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang the movie when the kids where kidnapped.

Took the Funicular up to the top and what a site it was, fantastic views over Pest and the architecture of the castle was simply a joy!

“Sterile reconstruction and terribly twee.”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Full of coach parties, devoid of all atmosphere. Lovely view of the Pest though. Toilets are hidden behind the ice-cram palor should you need them.

“Great Views”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

You can easily reach Castle Hill on foot by crossing the chain bridge. The climb up the hill is a relatively easy one, as the trail slopes up slowly. It gives great views of the Chain bridge and of the Pest side of Budapest.
