  • Don't miss the beautiful view of Budapest from the chairlift. Take the bus from the Szell Kalman ter and buy a return ticket OR go by bus to Normafa and walk a mile to the top station.  more »
  • This exciting ride offers a really nice view over Budapest, taking you to the highest point of the city. Even on the cold day it was there it was nice - the weather above the clouds was much nicer tha...  more »
  • Via the Cog Railway and the children's train has gone up to the bottom station of the chair lift. Ticket purchased (1000 huf one way) and hitchhiked down. It was a bit soft but definitely worth it! Beautiful view, friendly staff, not crowded and relax coming down after a decent click. Worth to bedoeken in Budapest.

  • Great way to see the city from above. Ticket vending machine in English as well, takes coin, banknote and cards. Purchase of a souvenir fun picture of chairlift with us once you reach the top is a great add-on. Nice casual eatery at the top station with hamburger, hot dogs, strudel, schnitzel, langos, snacks and hot/cold drinks. Playground for kids and run path for joggers. Short walk up to Elizabeth look out tower. A must if you have enough time in Budapest.
  • This chairlift is the best way to get up to the top of János-hegy (John's Hill), and then it's just a short walk to the fabulous, must-see (in fine weather) views from Elizabeth (Erszebet) Tower, the highest point in the Budapest Hills. In fine weather you can see the Tatras to the north Fabulous views.
  • The best and convenient way to reach the Erzabet tower. Beautiful views. 1000 forint to one way ticket. 1400 to round trip. The last station of 291 bus line.
  • Great view from above and great feelings through the journey!
  • The endstations are a bit run-down state, but the view is perfect - the downhill direction is preferred - you can take one-way if you go to the Normafa with bus 21. On weekends the queue is pretty long.
