“Nice view”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Really nice view especially during night time. Climbing to uphill is heavy but it is worth of it. From here you can continue to old town and Buda castle.

“Attractive statue and park area”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Took a tour which took us up to Gellert Hill. We decided to walk the paths back down the hill to the bridge. It looked like a nice area to spend some time, unfortunately it was raining.

“Highly recommended for a night walk”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Absolutely a must visit at night, due to perfect view on the city. Would suggest to walk from the side of Liberty bridge & Gellert Baths, visit the big statue at the very top, then move lower to st. geroge statue, and finish on the other end of the hill on Royal castle side (should not take more than 1hr of your time, if you are used to walking (the climb is steep) ;)). Given good weather, you will definately enjoy the view on the city, view on the Royal castle, the bridges, etc. Budapest is beautifully lit during the night, and this is probably one of the best places to enjoy it from.

“Must see in Budapest”
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
