A must see in Budapest as it offers stunning views of the river, city and Parliament. The whole place has been recently restored/ cleaned up and it shows. Highly recommend

Wonderful views overlooking the pest side of Budapest from here. Good picture spot. tip: skip the main wall to the right and go to the wall on the left. Your admission to this section includes one drink, the tower is a slightly higher vantage point...More

The architecture is amazing, offering fantastic views of the Danube and city. It is close to the church and all the interesting buildings of the castle district of Buda. Not to be missed.

From the Bastion you have a great view of Parliament, the Danube River and the Chain Bridge. This is part of the time you spend on Castle Hill.

Absolutely beautiful series of small spires along a wall overlooking the river, up in the Castle District. Gets very busy. Better come earlier or later. In evening you can eat & drink at the wall edge overlooking City and River Danube all it up.

Don't be fooled by it's look of history. Relatively new but design from the tribal tents straight out of a story book. Children love it and superb views.

Thank wiseolly

empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many

Sure, should not be a problem. It may be a little cold, but otherwise i don't see any problem with it. Make sure to visit the church right next to it as well.
