  • Amazing view of the whole of Buda and Pest. I'd recommend going before first light and watch the sun rise. The sun sets behind the mountains so that's not really worth it, but it rises behind Pest, guaranteeing a beautiful view. Plus, in the morning it's not crowded or even fully vacant.
  • Absolutely worth all the climb 👍🏼 We climbed all the way from the river to the Liberty Statue, we started our hiking slightly before the sunset so we could enjoy the beautiful Budapest during sunset. We really enjoyed every single moment the view is amazing from above it's really wonderful I can't forget it.
  • It's quite a climb, but you can easily reach the top within 15 minutes. And then you are in for a treat: what a beautiful view from above on Budapest!
  • It is a must to go there. Try to use the small path from the Monastery Caves! You will experience a beautifull sight of Pest and the Danube.
  • Good view on the Danube and Pest. Sometimes there are some kiosks to buy food. Sometimes there is a stage with performers e.g. traditional Hungarian folk music and dance.
