We only toot the ride up, walking down from the fishermen's bastion is easy and we actually found this ride a bit expensive in comparisson to other admissions in Budapest. Yopu don't have to take this ride for the view since you get to see that up on the hill anyway, but the carts are lovely and have a bit of a nostalgic atmosphere and yes: it really beats walking the way up!

I must say: the lady behind the counter and the girl at the gate weren't that friendly, which gave the whole experience a bit of an uncomforable feeling.

This is a great way to "climb" the hill at Buda up to the Royal Palace. It's relatively inexpensive and there's a good view, albeit the same view as you'd get at the top anyway. It's much much easier to wait a few minutes in line for this than to walk the whole way to the top!

We had been walking all day and was glad of the siklo as I didn't fancy walking up the hill, we paid 900 Forints to go oneway, The quick trip was worth it although staff were rude

Costs about £3 each return. Short ride but good fun and great views on way up and down in a nostalgic carriage.

The Funicular is a quick and effortless way to climb the Buda hill. You will also get a nice view while you ride it - but you get that same view once you get to the top of the hill anyway. It was expensive for the quick ride, and a relatively long wait in line. If you are in shape just head for the steps!
