  • Driven by glowing reviews and with the help of google maps we arrive on this hill. After walking through the Woods, after visiting the Tower of Elizabeth we opt for this ride in the chairlift, a really nice experience. Recommended!

  • We all tried out the first chairlifts and needless to say, an incredible experience. Beautiful view, perfect weekend program, even families with small children.

  • Really nice view of the city downhill. Good excursion start point at the upper station. Fine dishes in the buffet. Ideal for couples, families.
  • Amazing old chairlift, great views of the city from the upper part. Tickets can be bought in vending machines by card and with English language option.
  • Approx 15 mins ride, especially nice when you ride off the hill! Kids of any age, baby carriage are allowed to be taken
  • Stunning view on the chairlift on the way down Janos Heyg. Ride is reasonable length and view is great. However a little expensive. Worth a go especially if you went up with the children's railway.
  • Excellent view, fun! We usually go up to normafa with the bus 21 or the cogwheel walk over and come down with the chairlift. That makes it a kinda easy excursion.
