“Must visit”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Citadella is at the top of Mountain Gellért, the view is beautiful at day, and truly amazing at night. Also a great place for a date, it's really romantic.

“Exelent panorana”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

You can see the whole city from the top of the hill and it is even more impressing during the night. Totally worth the climbing.

“Great views over the city”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

You can catch a local service bus to the bottom of the hill then its only about a 15 minute stroll up to the top.Once you are at the top you get some of the best panoramic views over the city.It can get quite busy up at the top because all the tour busses call there,still not to be missed.

“Maybe the nicest view in Hungary”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

On the Gellért hill, face to the city, wonderful panoramic view to the surrounding area. Easy walk if you are by car, from the city is more difficult, but it worth. Good information boards about the fortress's history.
If you are in Bp, do not miss it.
