Liberty Statue, Budapest

4.6
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. Hike to the fortress at the summit of this 235 m (771 ft) rock hill for views of the city below.

  • A very tiring, but totally worth it. Unfortunately the rain was even more tiring than expected, but the view and the statue itself, it's a must see when you go to Budapest. A show.

  • Need you a little patience before arriving at the top, it is not easy to climb upstairs to admire this lovely city views! Nevertheless, it is worth a visit and there are quite a few places to look and to make breaks during the climb! Once at the top... we remember why we took our time! =)

  • It is really worth! During our first visit in Budapest we have omitted the ascent, we have now made that up. From the top you have an entirely different view than, for example, of the Castle Palace again. The increase is also feasible, are already on the way some nice vantage points. It took us 15 minutes.

  • Beautiful views from up here. Nice and clean and definitely a place to bring a picnic in the warmer months. Only had a day here so didn't get to spend much time here. I will be back.
  • We found the Statue of Liberty to be an impressive site, that we viewed from a Danube Tour (by Dock 8A - recommended). Interesting to view it from this angle and very grand high on the hill!
  • Amazing views as this place is at a higher altitude than the Buda Castle. Must visit if you can as you will not be disappointed.
  • Beautiful historical monument at the castle of Budapest city. Good photo opportunities, beautiful panoramic view of the city.
  • One of the top sights to cover in Budapest. Absolute must for photographers to capture iconic postcard like photos of Budapest.
