Great to take the chairlift up the hill and look down on a number of private gardens. The wedding cake lookout tower gives you a great view across Buda and all the way over to Pest.

One of the best viewpoint to the city, a nice hill, though not easy to access. One is by the chairlift, which is the best and can be a lovely part of a day trip. The viewpoint is free, there is a historical part of...More
