Incredible selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. If you enjoy fresh fruits - this is the place to go. Hungary enjoys incredible climate and soil that produce very tasty fruits and veggies. Also safe to purchase other items here. The narrow aisles can become crowded...More

This is a lovely area of Budapest, up on the hill overlooking the beautiful river. The building are very clean and photogenic. A little crowded but that is to be expected.

Visitors are usually amazed to learn - and so was I - that this was only built in 1903. It reminds me of a fairy-tale castle. It is worth visiting, it offers excellent view of the other side of the river and the city. Don't...More

Good views from here but equally from other place which you don’t have to pay for!! Admission 2,000 Ft (£5) & not worth it!!

The view was incredible. A bit touristy but it's certainly worth a visit. Recommend paying for the special spots to see the other side of the city.

Loved this place, the castle is very 'Cinderella' like, absolutely beautiful. I definitely recommend a visit to this site.

Bit surprised to have to pay to walk along the bastion, good views but could be seen elsewhere without paying.
