There are 3 ways to get up the hill, by walking, taking bus or funicular. The funicular costs around 1100 Forint. Personally, i think the funicular does not worth the money because the funicular ride is less than 1 minute. If you happen to have a ticket for public transport, bus 16 will take you up the hill and stop right in front of the Fisherman Bastion. Walking up the hill took us only 10 minutes (to be fair, we were more like jogging than walking) and if you are travelling in a limited budget, walking is an ideal way to get up the hill. The view from the top of the hill is amazing. You will be able to see the Pest (eastern side of Danube). Watching Budapest from Castle Hill during night time is indescribable.
