Splendid, we spent the afternoon but really needed a couple of days, so much to see and enjoy. The first shop where the taxis drop off on the left is very expensive compared to the city prices.

Came up here with a walking tour and it has nice views of the city as well as some nice little shops to check out and some great architecture too. I highly recommend walking up rather then taking the funicular. By the time you buy the overpriced ticket and wait for it you'll already be up at the top, it's a short, unchallenging walk up.

Take a taxi and have the driver wait. The view is worth the cost. Try and get there at sunset for a fantastic view of Pest.

We went to the top of the hill on the vurnicular and the views were great. It was a colder, overcast day, but still offered a very picturesque scene. There are some other sights to see if you walk around the area, but the best part for us was definitely the view.

We walked around Castle Hill for the better part of a day. Lots of shops and restaurants to visit, plus Matthias Church and other cultural buildings on the hill too.

You can either ride the funicular up the hill or take the path/steps. We took the steps and it wasn't that bad. Benches and flatter parts to help you catch your breath if needed.

A must-see in Budapest.
