A little walk in the hills in Buda is a very Budapest thing to do. Jánoshegy has splendid views as does the Normafa below.

It is worth climbing up on the hill from Normafa, and then up on the stairs of the tower. You can also use the chairlift on the way back, which takes you to Zugliget.

My partner & I loved coming up to the Jánoshegyi/Elizabeth lookout time to time. Especially just before sunset. It’s magical & romantic. The building and the surrounding area has its own charm.
