Nice walk up the hill. Great view of Budapest from the top so take your camera with you :).

Prepare to meet other tourists as well since there are always tourists up here.

This area is worth a visit just for the views of the City alone. The Red Bus stops here and then walk down the hill.

Start looking at it from street level. Afterwards, climb the stair (yes, there a few but take your time) and get a great view over the Elisabeth Bridge and Pest. Afterwards, continue on the paved paths to the very top of the Geller Hill (snacks and drinks for sale on top). There are plenty of benches along the way,so tak your time. The view is worth it!

This hill is another good viewpoint of Budapest. Really crowded. Go there and take nice photos of Danube and Budapest.

Even better view than the famous Castle Hill...and less crowded too! The walk up is surprisngly quiet and peaceful. From the top you can see both sides of Budapest and it is absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy coffee or wine in the small souviner shops and stands...but beware the restaurant/cafe is a bit over priced.
