Halaszbastya, Budapest

4.6
The seven fairy tale-like towers of Halaszbastya offer views of the Danube and Pest side of the city. Built in the late 19th century and restored after World War II, this Neo-Gothic and Neo-Romanesque structure within World Heritage Site Buda Castle takes its name from the medieval fisherman who defended these city walls. On the Buda side of the city, walk up or take a funicular to the top of Castle Hill to get to the bastion, near the 14th-century Matthias Church. Step inside one of the seven towers for spectacular views across the Danube River.

  • The Fishing towers are a magnificent historical and architectural treasure. A unique style that cannot be seen in other countries. Remarkable location above the Danube, a must-see complex!  more »
  • We planned to walk to the Buda Castle District from the Pest side. So we crossed the Chain Bridge and ended up walking to the Fisherman's Bastion first. It was an easy walk from the Chain Bridge. We.....  more »

  • Very nice place with a beautiful view over the river. Leave enough time so you can explore this area as there are many interesting things to see. If you are into photography you can take amazing photos here, especially if you get early while there are not so many people here.
  • Came back here multiple times during a short holiday in Budapest. It offers a great view on the parliament and on the Pest side of the city, and on the Danube. It deserves to be visited at all times of day, especially at dawn and at dusk, because it keeps changing shades of colour and atmosphere. Also, don't miss out on the multi colored tiles of the church's roof inside the bastion's walls.
  • One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.. during November the weather was not good it was raining but still we had a lovely time.. you should be ready for lot of pictures when u visit here.... No need to buy pass for bus it is rubbish.. best option is to take a 2day or 3 day travel pass of public transport... One of the best and fastest public transportation in the world...
  • This part of the City, across the Danube is simply old world elegant, but repaired, revived and full of great views, sights, food and fun. There is an extensive underground network of caves and tunnels nearby used during the wars that shows in museum fashion how the city had to hide to be safe. When you are out on the hill tops on the Bastion, you understand the grandness of Budapest for centuries.
