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.

  • Without doubt, one of the most beautiful sights of Budapest, including the surroundings. Stay away from the central areas, but access is not complicated.
