    This is one of the nicest places I have so far seen in Budapest. We went first from Pest to Buda. In Buda, we switched to a bus that we went with in like 5 minutes until we came up with a chair lift facility. Once you find a pathway up to the top of a tower. Fantastic environment with just the right amount of people. We went up the tower and then went down and drank coffee and beer. It was so nice to sit in so we sat safely two hours just below the tower. Relaxing ..... Then we followed a walk path and went down to Buda. Really nice field with people who just took it easy on the way down. Highly recommend this trip!

    Definitely worth a visit. Here it is easy to get to by bus 291, which leaves the West End shopping center. Päätepysäkäkin is next to the building, which leaves the chair lifts up. Elevator shall be paid to the machine, either in cash or by card. Elevator trip took about ten minutes. At the top was a little restaurant.
