Owner description: Built during the 19th century for the Hungarian Millennium celebrations, this mock bastion features pointed towers and turrets, reminiscent of the fairytale castles in Disney World.

Fisherman's Bastion was one of the things I was looking forward to see at Budapest and although it was very pretty and detailed with gorgeous views it was extremley crowded and it really let the overall experience down. I also found it too "touristy" with alot of stalls and souviner shops right beside it. Took away from the architecture and beauty of the place.

It's true you do get a great view of the river but you don't get a great idea of any of the history from all this new work. We found the citadell way more moving and a great view

Great spot to see great views of Budapest. The area around Fisherman's Bastion has many things to see within a reasonable walk. Mattias Church, Hospital in the wall, The Palace, Funicular cable car.

One of the most beautiful views you will ever see, gorgeous architecture; went on a Sunday evening and wasn't crowded with tourist, so quaint.
