“Too short, but nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

A good way to go up hill, and really nice view, but the trip is almost too short. The line was almost longer than the trip, and it was not that cheap, but the kids loved it.
Compared to other things in Budapest it was a little bit expensive

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

During both night and day the view from the railway is fantastic. We used it twice a day for a week as we were staying in the castle area. Its like stepping back in time with the beautiful wooden carraiged with polished brass. Well worth a visit.

“Quick/Cheap/Scenic way up Castle Hill - worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is a fab way to get up the hill and it's very cheap plus you get can some fab photos. The Funicular ticket booth/entrance is located literally just opposite the Szechenyi bridge on the Buda side - you can't miss it.

“Quick way up the Hill!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

It was snowing and we wanted to get up the hill quickly. Expensive for such a short trip - around £3 per person single. On a dry day I would walk and enjoy the stunning views.

“Short and sweet ride up Varhegy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Great way to get up the hill in the rain with wonderful views.
Otherwise i would rather take the pretty walk up. Pretty chilly in February but still a nice walk in the snow.
