“Must see in Budapest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

We went to the Gellert Hill on a hop on and hop of tour which can be highly recomended. The tickets for the tour last 48 hours and the audio information you get is very good and the voice in the audio set is very easy understandable with very clear pronaunciation. The information is also avaiable on - I think 15 other languages
The view from gellert hill over the Pest side is fantastic

“Best View is at Night!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Best view of the statue is at night from the river. If you climb up to the statue you can only see the back side as the statue faces the river and is on a steep hill.

“Go at dusk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Got the tram over and after a bit of phaffing around we started climbing up the hill at around 3.30pm, although lots of different paths and steps so not easy to tell which is the most direct route. Got to the top just as sun was setting and got the most amazing views over the city with all the twinkling lights and was just priceless. Definitely the time of day to do it.
