This is located near the northern end of Castle Hill. After seeing the magnificient Matthias Church and the great view from the Fishermen's Bastion, this is a big letdown. Unless you are a history buff or happen to be passing by, it is not worth...More
Less than 200 stairs up, this is a fun activity that is off the beaten path in the castle district. Less than 10 minutes walk from the Mathias Church, the walk to it will give you a beautiful and non-touristy view of the Castle District....More
Just recently opened the tower has impressive 360 degree views. 172 steps and 900 HUF puts you at the top. They are still working on the place so as yet there are no exhibitions or displays. Just the tower and the views. Still worth it.
There isn't much left of the church but the ruins are interesting and one can climb up the tower for a small fee. It is a quiet spot away from the main tourist sites and worth a stop if you are walking the perimeter of...More

There is not much to see here except the tower, one window frame and the foundation. It is still an interesting place, though, and only a 10 minute walk from St Matthias and a 2 minute walk from the national archives. Go and take photos!
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.
