You'll encounter some of the best views of Budapest and the Danube at Liberty Statue, home to the Citadella, a World Heritage Site. This hillside played host to several vineyards in the 18th century and currently features several embassies and expensive homes. The reigning Habsburg Austrians built the citadel atop the hill after the Hungarian revolts of 1948 and 1949.

  • Budapest and all its beauty is enjoyed from all angles, altitudes and perspectives, and from up the hill it has also to be seen.

  • It’s a long way to get to the top but on the way you have an amazing view of Pest. Take your breaks and enjoy the way up… Tip: the best time is during sunset…
  • Nice view of the city. Nice walk up. Slightly more difficult to reach by public transport
  • Walk till the statue is really good. I went in the evening, and it was well lit, hence safe. From top you will be able to see good view of Budapest's iconic places.
  • Great view. Unfortunately being renovated so can't get close to it
  • It was a shame that it was locked for renovations, but still very pretty. No indications prior to getting to the top that it was closed off.
