I went late night, walked around, was well kept and pleasant with great views of Budapest. I should gone during the day because I would've been able to see much more, although the views of Budapest from there were probably better at night.

Located next to the Liberty Statue on Gellert Hill, with great views all across the city. If you are interested in history, you should not miss it. You can still see the bullet holes on the side. There are cabins for food.

Even though I could not find my way inside there are nice photographs on the exterior that explain a lot about the history of the Citadel.

Worth a mooch but fisherman's bastion views and surroundings are miles better. Looooong walk up and tiring even in cold weather. Views from top are nice but id defo say I'd choose fisherman's bastion over here any day. Especially if you ain't super fit!

I have been to Budapest 3 times so far and each time I visited this place. If you want to have a picture with a beautiful back ground of Budapest, thats the place you should go. White bridge looks great from here.

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being
