Janoshegy, Budapest

(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.
