“Great views of Pest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We loved the view of Pest from Castle Hill. you get a birds eye view of the Chain bridge, Danube, Pest city, and the Parliament buildings. There is a lot of reconstruction of the roads up there when we were there and can get a little crowded on whats left to walk on. The views by the cathedral are the best.

“Lovely view from up in the castle and great fun at the Wine Festival!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Me and my partner stumbled across the Buda castle as we crossed chain bridge. We paid to get the lift up to the top and back because it was just quicker! You can walk up there if you dont want to pay for the lift. Once we got up there, there was a wine festival going on, so we paid to go in there too and it was a great experience! Lots of wine, cheese and food and live music. It really was a great atmostphere and great experience. The view of budapest from up in the castle was a beautiful sight, and was even prettier at night! Got abit chilly though!

“Walking tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Lots to do and see around the Castle Area. Various sites - mostly expensive due to it being very 'touristy'.
