  • From the dropoff point it is still a hike to the top. The top is crowned by the Hungarian Statue of Liberty but its the views from the top that impress. The view is stupendous. This is a must stop.....  more »

  • This is a great place for hiking - if you like physical activity - follow the "hearts". But you are welcome to know that there is nothing at the top except beautiful views of the city. The best views of Budapest.
  • What a walk but definitely worth it. We had a lovely weather and enjoyable walk through the mount it is peaceful and nice to feel above the vibrant city of Budapest. With good weather conditions you can see pretty far
  • The "statue of liberty" as they call it... A symbolic landmark for the martyred Hungarian people. Offers a great panoramic view of the entire city. The walk up to the top is also pretty pleasant. There's a kiosk too here for snacks and drinks.
  • Great place for those who like walking up the hill. Stunning view, photos cannot describe how beautiful the city looks!
  • As the name it shows, I could feel freedom! The statue is beautiful! Prepare yourself to go up with many stairs, but you can also choose paths which are less tiring and have a few stops to take views! Recommend you to go with casual/sport clothes, mainly tennis/sneakers to have a comfortable walk as it's like basically a mountain area, a beautiful natural area preserved. At the top have a bar, which is nice :)
