Atop it stands an elegant, historical lookout tower with an observation deck that offers panoramic views of the city. You'll have the chance to hike, mountain bike, or run here. You can access the top of the mountain by chairlift; a short bus ride takes you to the bottom of the lift.

  • Its not so difficult to reach from széll kálmán tér. Really nice view and good for short trecking around the city. Absolutely recommended 
  • Loved Budapest and so, I think all places that provide a greater view of the city, are worth being visited. The Janos Hill is the highest point and you have an incredible view of the entire city. Only recommend to be visited on a sunny day. In winter they say is too cold.
