I think lot of reviewers haver mentioned here the best view of Budapest and the shopping places and nice walk and everything but I think they are missing one thing is this all happens outside Citadel and has nothing to do with what is inside Citadel which you have to pay extra to go inside. They have a hotel and restaurant inside citadel but the reason it is famous is because of its use during the World War II. They have a war measurement inside the bunker where they have display of the World War II incidents by pictures and statues. They also have prisoners cells and information on how they were tortured when Hungarian fascist leader Ferenc Szálasi established a new government, with German backing. In 1945, Hungarian and German forces in Hungary were defeated by invading Soviet and Romanian armies.
When the war ended, Szálasi was captured by American troops and returned to Hungary. He was tried by the People's Tribunal in Budapest in open sessions and sentenced to death for war crimes and high treason. Szálasi was hanged in 1946 in Budapest. Some photographs of the execution are on display in the bunker museum in Citadel in Budapest. I think this has more historic relevance then just the scenic view of the city.
