  • About a 20 minute bus ride from near parliment so quite easy go get to. Was a long que which was only to by tickets to use the chairlift so it was a little frustrating when seeing chairs not being use...  more »
  • Visiting the Libegő during March was a great idea as the place is not crowded yet (there were no queues at all) but the weather is good & sunny enough to enjoy the 15-minutes ride on the chairlift and...  more »

  • 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.
