Owner description: Lovingly restored after being reduced to rubble during World War II, this picturesque area is located in the heart of medieval Budapest, which is characterized by cobblestone streets, narrow alleys and lovely squares surrounded by baroque and classical buildings.

Although the Citadel was closed to public; that did not prevent us from enjoying tremendously the superior Panoramic views of Budapest and the main attractions of both Buda and Pest; the green Buda, the Danube and its magnificent Bridges, the Parliament, St Stephen’s Basilica, St Matthias Church, and many other beautiful locations.

It is a must visit to all photographers and scenery lovers.

This place gives a good view on the city. The way up is not too hard, but it's a small hike. From the top you'll be able to see the city. It can be very crowded with tourists, specially during summerime. It's nice to go in the evening, when the sun is less bright.

Great views of the city, historic sights, cafes, shopping and St. Mattias Church. Would definitely go back!

On a holiday trip to, inter alia, Budapest, our first place to visit was Castle Hill. And what a place to visit. Sitting atop Budapest, it offers of panoramic view of the city and its surroundings. Most breathtaking is the view of river Danube and the Pest side of the City, which is virtually on flat grounds. One can see imposing parliament building on other side of the river, as also several modern building, many of them 5 star hotels. The castle and church on the caste hill are very impressive. All in all, one can easily pass 2-3 hours enjoying beauty of the place, surroundings and breathtaking brid's eye view that the place offers. Full marks for the spot.

Whether you want to tour yet more castles and churches or not, you must head up here just for the spectacular view of Budapest from the Buda side. it is really exceptional. There is also a cafe located up top with a stunning view as well.
