What travelers say:

A neo-Gothic and neo-Romanic viewing platform located on the Buda side of Budapest, Hungary, on the Castle Hill on the Danube River, near the Magash Church. It was built between 1895 and 1902 and was designed by Friger Schulek. During World War II, the fisherman's castle was almost destroyed. From 1947 to 1948, Janos Schulak, the son of Friedrich Schulak, was in charge of the restoration work.

Additional Information


Pack your camera for a trip to Budapest’s Fisherman’s Bastion, reputed to offer the best views in this historic city. Built in 1902, the massive neo-Gothic, neo-Romanesque structure sits atop Castle Hill in a location adjacent to Matthias Church. Filled with winding staircases, parapets, turrets and white stone projections, on a clear day, the Bastion offers unrivaled views of Margaret Island, Saint Stephen’s Basilica and Parliament. Seven towers that symbolize the seven historic tribes of Hungary offer the best photography angles; you can enter them for a small fee. Entrance to the rest of the Bastion terrace is free of charge.
