What people are saying:

2018.06.05 Even if the sun is shining in my eyes, I must come to Castle Hill to see the panoramic view of Budapest. Ride the cable car to the castle, with a wide view, and the round-trip fare is very fair. The cable car has been in operation since the Middle Ages, when it was driven by steam. The cable car, which had been changed to electric drive, took us to the top of the mountain in less than 2 minutes. Standing at the highest point of Buda, looking around, the Danube is right in front of you, and Pest on the other side of the chain bridge is quiet and charming. As I remember, the side with the castle is Buda. In just three days, I have been deeply attracted by this beautiful and magnificent city. If you plan to travel to Europe, remember to include Hungary in the list of cities. It will not disappoint.

    The place is swarming with tourists. It is not a very well guarded place as the chances of running into scammers are high. Views, you can get from other places. Across the Danube views, ok from here.
