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.
Options to reach the summit are to take the short vernacular railway ride or to walk to the top. The queue for the railway was pretty long so we hiked up. The walk although moderately inclined was fairly easy and worth the effort. The castle...More

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 and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable 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
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
