As our reviewers had said, this is off the tourist track, and some homework and planning needs to be done, and well worth the effort. Our hotel provided help too, as well as info in the DK Eyewitness travel guide.
Take the Metro red line M2 to Szell Kalman ter.
Then Tram 61 to opposite the Hotel Budapest - the cylindrical building !!! it's only about 3 stops.
Cog Railway no 60 - theres only one to the top.
The old Tv mast is nearby, the journey is about 40mins.
Walk 300 yds to teh terminus of the Children's railway, and book to Janos Gegy ( Janos Hill ) about 2/3 the way along.
Alight and walk up though the woods, - sign at the station - chair lift.
At the chair lift , go left up the easy path- by the road, it's spongy!!! and right at the top.
Climb up the tower, yes it's free for the super views of the city.. light snacks and ice cream here.
Re-trace steps to the cahir lift and descend....... for a quiet and peacful rise through the trees, you will not be dis-apointed .
Then bus 290 to the tram lines and pick up tram 61 back to the metro stn.
Note - the Busapest travel card 2/ 3 days will cover the metro and the Cog railway, and 1.2 price on the Children's railway. the chair lift is full price but not expensive.
Well worth the effort, you will not get lost !! just copy and print any of the reviews and take with you. Suggest you take a packed lunch as the fayre in the cafes is limited.
