I took a bus 291 from Nyugati pályaudvar to Libegő (last stop, bought the ticket from the ticket machine, it was, I think, 350 HUF one way) - I wanted to go up with the chairlift, but - for my luck:) - it was out of order to maintance on that day. I say for my luck because otherwise I would have missed a hike where I did not see any people at all - only some lizards (very small ones), butterflies, birds and the view to the city. It was awesome with that beautiful weather. A little steep though, so I guess with rain it's not so nice. I got to the path when I passed the chairlift building and went along the asphalt road for a while (5-7 min maybe) until I saw stairs in the right - from there it's a beautiful hike to up. You get out from the forest right where the chairlifts go and from there is a little more to go to Erzebet tower. No ticket and again - what a view! There's a little cafe/shop also - cold water, ice cream, etc.
To get down I thought I go the same way but then - why not make it more interesting and find another way. So I thought I'll try out the Children's Railway, that is not just for children but where children work. So I went down, again through a little sweet forest path and I got to Janoshegy train stop and waited a little while. I took a train to Hűvösvölgy, it took about 20 minutes and cost 600 HUF. From there I took tram nr 61 to Szell Kalman ter and from there I went on with subway.
I was very pleased how everything worked out:)
