  • Cable car that offers an excellent panoramic view of the city and its surroundings. Take the opportunity to go to the "Erzsébet Kilátó", a fantastic viewpoint which is some meters above the higher output of the cable car at the top of Mount János, or "János-hégy". You can also reach the top station of the cable car by calling children's railway, or "Gyermekvasút". Recommend going on a day sunny and cloudless, for most of the visual.

  • You wont be surprised to learn that the lift was built in the 70s, but it feels relatively safe (once you survive). Kidding, it’s really not bad at all! It’s about a 15 minute ride up and the views ke...  more »
  • It made no sense to climb up. We rode along the route: toothed tram, children's railway, the observation deck. Having been on the lookout-went down by cable car. It is very interesting.

  • 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.
