Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our self organised tour of the Buda hills saw us trek up from the children’s railway stop at Janoshegy, a brief beer stop, and the. The climb to and up the tower. Stunning views across Hungary and Slovakia - a guide on what could be seen in each direction would have been helpful - then back to the chairlift ride down

We dropped our cat at Normafa and walked all the way to the Elisabeth Lookout Tower on the forest trail . The view was just perfect, we could see the Hungarian Parliament clearly!

It's not close to the city center, but it's absolutely worth it. I was near Oktogon so I had to take a tram, then a bus, then a short hike (but very easy, not an intense hike). It's free to get in and you can go all the way to the very top where the views are absolutely stunning. 360 degree view of the entire surrounding area.

Something worth noting is that you will buy your chairlift ticket from one of two machines THAT DO NOT GIVE CHANGE.
One adult and one child return totalled 4000HUF so I inserted a 5000HUF note and only then did it come up on the screen that it wouldn’t give change.
The chairlift ride up is nice. The tower is pretty. The tower cafe was closed when we went 10.30am on a weekday in April. I can imagine it being much busier during summer.
The expansive parkland around the tower has trails and at least one amazing-looking kids playground. It’s worth bringing a picnic up and making a couple of hours of it.

We got the 61 tram from Buda to Budagyongye then the 291 bus to zugligeti, from here get the chair lift up the hill and a short walk up to the tower, it is spectacular both in its looks and the view it gives from the top, free to enter. Was very windy on our visit but the view from the top is great.We walked back down, which is not for the faint hearted but a good work out, or you can pay to go back down the chair lift. Great trip out of the city and a break from the norm!

First there are two ways to come to Elizabeth Lookout, first is free and by foot and the second is by chairlift for 1200 HUF for one way or 1600 HUF (4.5 EUR) for return ticket.
Parking is free in both cases.
If you go by foot you will need more than 1 h uphill, and then 10 min more to the Lookout, and if you come by chairlift than 12-15 min ride + 10 min by foot.
At the bottom of Lookout there is a big park and playground with restaurant and non working toilet.
Then when you decide to climb a little more to the Elisabeth Lookout you will get even more spectacular view from the top.
Entrance is free to the tower. But on the third level on the top there is a lot of insects and bugs, so be aware of that. We didn't mind, and the view is amazing!
We recommend it to stay at least a couple of hours and you can bring your own food and water and make very interesting picnic.

A lovely bus ride with winding curves takes you up from Budapest old train station, it takes you to the foot of the chairlift. When reaching the top lift station there is a cafeteria with food and drinks available and nice views over the city. If you want the best views ever, It is a fairly steep long climb to the tower but take it easy, you'll get there! When you get to the tower climb up right to the top for breathtaking views! All worth it!
Maybe while waiting for your bus to take you on this lovely and price wise cheap excursion, visit the worlds most beautiful Mc Donald's next to the station on a square, in a great historic building.

Nice are with well marked hiking trails in the woods, playgrounds, jogging path etc. The viewpoint is well reserved, with small historic "museum" on the first level and is free to visit. A coffee on the ground floor (cash only!) and free toilet. Wheelchair accessible until the base, but not inside.

I recently visited the Elizabeth Tower and was impressed by the incredible 360-degree views it offers over Budapest & surroundings. Plus, the tower is located in a lovely park and you don't have to pay to enter the tower. I would definitely recommend visiting this site for a unique high-up perspective on Budapest.

We did a half day trip to this place children’ S Railway then the chair lift finishing with. I would have preferred hiking up through the forest or just come up via the chair lift. Once at the top of the lift there are a few shops for foot and drink . You can then walk up the incredible hill , 600m very very steep. Amazingly you could see cyclists riding up as well . Once at the top it’s amazing. The lookout itself is a sight to behold. There is a bar at the base which is daylight robbery and only takes cash. You can then climb up to the very to
the very top. The pictures do not do it any justice at all
