Great views over the city and the history is interesting to get to know a bit more about the situation in Budapest during the 'wars'. If the weather is nice, the park behind is worth a visit to wander around and relax

Took the tourist bus up to the top and was amazed by the views across the Danube and Pest (the flat side of Budapest). It's worth taking transport up and then trekking down at your own pace otherwise you miss some great historical areas and buildings. Again it a great place of photo enthusiasts. It does get populate with tourists but there are enough places to go off the beaten track. Definitely worth going in the summer (June or July).

We decided to walk to this attraction via a park as the citadel is situated on top of the hill.the views are well worth it as you can see across the whole of Budapest and the monuments are lovely. But in hindsight should have used the hop on hop off red bus.

Hungarians have done everything in the last 10 years to brush up their capital - especially at nighttime the view from the Citadella is something you will never forget!
Some 25 years ago I would take ladies up there and we enjoyed a bottle of sweet hungarian pezsgő (sparkling wine) and we enjoyed the view down to the wonderful city and our youth ;-)
To enter the fortification you have to pay entrance-fee; if you stay outside, it´s still free.
Parking (small fee at the ticket-vending -machine) available; especially at nighttime many parking-lots available.
