“Excellent views”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We had reached the Castle & Bastion area by the funicular (tip: Buy return tickets). The views over the Danube & Pest are excellent and present great photo opportunities. The cafe at the top of the Bastion provided welcome hot mulled wine for a cold February day. There is a small charge for the nearby WC facilities

“Nice sight on top of the city”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I spent a few hours in and around the castle and I think the best of all of it was spendint some time with a caffe on the Halaszbastya how the locals call it.

“Looks like it is from a fairytale”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This was a nice structure to walk around and take photos of. Not much information about it, but it has a great view over the river and Pest.

“A must during any visit to Buda”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

One phrase - a must... if you want a great photo of your visit, the fishermans bastion is the place to take it, trust me.
A couple of cafes nearby, gypsy musicians and a couple of guys with a Golden Eagle and a Hawk!
