Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Hungary  /  Central Hungary  /  Budapest  /  Janoshegy
At a height of 526 m (1,276 ft), Janoshegy stands as the tallest hill in Hungary--the country's highest peak. 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.

  • Nice trip itself here, because the top of the city takes you to the toothed tram. Old carriages go uphill under a slightly high angle enough ears and around houses and villas budapeshtcev, this quiet life. Upstairs is Park Normafa. named after somehow Opera Bellini (rather than the worksheet and not Kalman))) "the norm". Perhaps the creators of the Park, he recalled the sacred Grove of Druids, which starts the first step spekaklja. The Park also offers beautiful blowing on the inside part (Valley), as well as the Danube and pest. Better bring binoculars, but without it you can see the Cathedral. Istvan, the houses of Parliament and the Ribbon of the river. In the Park in March, skate skiing, and rise to the top on foot, without a lift. There are also several eateries with local pancakes lanosh.

  • Be sure to visit the ropeway and Tower Erzsébet Kilato-will not regret! But get ready for a relatively steep rise. The elderly can be difficult! Upgrade from the cableway is not too long, in the Tower, I think, about 100 steps, but opening panorama just stunning! All Budapest seen from a bird's-eye view. From the Tower there is a café, nothing special, but for the rest will come down. I would have recommended to walk through the forest and then descend by cable car in the town. Beautiful place!
