  • More from this to make monumental site which is well worth a visit, but could be associated with the Citadel. The view of the city is of course super. The hop-on hop-off bus stops also at the Citadel, so you must run up.

  • A beautiful view of the Budapest from the mountain. We have done the bezigtiching with public transport and on foot. Nice area for walking. Unfortunately the castle was not open to the public.

  • It is a hard climb to the top of the hill, but it is worth it. Beautiful view, even in the foggy winter day we were there.
