  • This had Budapest's version of the "Statue of Liberty" and it is well worth seeing when in that area. You can't miss it!  more »
  • Quite a long and hard walk if you want to reach the place but I can say that totally worth it. Don’t forget to wait for it comes to dark. The city lights are so beautiful.  more »
  • Worth the hike up (quite a steep walk so need to be fit enough), though it's probably possible to get a taxi up most of the way, did see a road too. From the top you get a stunning view of the whole o...  more »

  • The most important attraction in Budapest. The view from top is wonderful. You can climb up on foot or go up by hop on- hop off bus. I recommend to book 2 days ticket with Big bus company, I believe it is the best . I booked the ticket including walking tour with local guide , 75 minutes river trip and hop on- hop off for the 2 days for the 3 lines.
  • The statute is not breathtaking but the place where it stands is. This is the spot to visit if you want to overview Budapest and take that picture to put on social media. The way up is hard but it definitely worth the visit
  • The way to the liberty statue is steep but not too long so getting there is totally worth, especially to have a look on this impressive monument. On a sunny day, take the time to enjoy the view from up there and wander down to the town (many ways).
  • Beautiful view from the top of the hill. Very beautiful garden. after climbing up you can find man with cold drinks
  • One of the best spots in Budapest. A historical venue, with one of the most remarkable statues in the city. Major part of the city can be viewed from just in front of the statue.
