“Worth a quick look only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

The site itself isn't very interesting or unique. The views of Pest are what's worth seeing. There is a small charge to climb the bastion walls.

“Wonderful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

This beautifully restored monument is well worth the short walk from the tourist bus stop. It offers magnificent views of the city, the parliament buildings and of course the Danube river. Plenty of souvenir shops, bars and restaurants in the vacinity.

“Fairy tale setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Just loved this area, once agin views are stunning from the vantage points and the turrets? give the place such a fairy tale setting. A few restaurants surround the area and not far from other attractions on Castle Hill. Althoug hop on hop off bus goes by, it's not a difficult walk.

“beautiful buildings and history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

This was our second visit here, and the builings are breath taking, and the views across the city are amazing. The only down side is the eyesore which is the Hilton Hotel which has also been built at this location, how they got permission to build that there is beyond me.
