“Take the Funicular .... Cool Mode of Transport !!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a fun way to descent from Buda Hill, you could take the bus, but do try this as an alternative method of transport !
Its easy to find on Buda Hill and the views of the Danube whilst descending are great, plus all you have to do is hop over the Chain Bridge ( amazing piece of engineering) and your into Pest and ready to soak up the fun cosmopolitan shopping experience .....

“Pricey but worth it”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

After walking through Szechenyi Bridge we decided to take the funicular to see the sunset at Castle Hill. Note that the common transport is not valid here and cost something like 1400 forints two ways. The trip takes only a couple of minutes. Sometimes there is a line to go up.

“Customer service ”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We visited here yesterday and wanted to save our feet on the walk up, so purchased a 1 way ticket for each of us. We were going to walk down, but decided we might aswel hop back on here down the hill.
However when greeted by one of the rudest Hungarian lady we decided to walk. This wasn't because of a lack of understanding, rather she had no time to offer any help when asked a question, rather she pointed to a sign and walked out of her office. Disgusting

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Although it's a quick way to get up to Castle Hill, it's pricey; better to take a stroll up the shady, windy path.

“Go on, be a tourist”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

It's not needed, it's not cheap but it is a lovely Funicular taking you up to the castle area from the chain bridge. Everyone on it was a tourist and it costs 1100 HUF one way. Nice views (but you get this from the castle area anyway. If you're short of funds, just have a look at it, walk up the pathways which thread up the hillside, crossing the funicular on bridges. You won't miss much by not actually riding on it.
