Did a day tour to Castle Hill and the view of the Buda side and Danube River. The church is absolutely beautiful. It is a must see. Try to build in enough time so you do not have to rush through this site.

Massive structures and impressive architecture. Just enjoy the views and the feast for the eyes. The whole area, overground and underground, is worth taking time.

Walk around castle and the streets of Buda and you feel as if on the set of a historic film. Do not forget to look into courtyards! Amazing sites to view

The castle is impressive. Good to go and walk there and see the city from there. You can take very good pictures there.

We spent a lot of time on Castle Hill from early morning to late at night. There are great churches, museums, lots to see and do. Good places to eat, good value too. Stay to watch the lights turning on as night comes.

There is a minibus at the bottom of the hill that is free with the Budapest card--I would highly recommend that. It's worth spending some time walking around the hill--the architecture is beautiful, but there's not a lot a heart here. Understand that most of...More

The historical center to a city with a multifarious

natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
