Great views of the city. Very pleasant atmosphere with music (street musicians). Great place for pictures with the church and parliament in the background.

Stunning Photos here and plenty of other things to see around it. We missed this the first time around and I would visit again. Very close the the Palace so do both in one hit!

Great view of Budapest from here. But the view of the building is more spectacular it's like a fairy tale castle. Definitely a must see. Plus a good little cafe up there to get a drink and ice cream from.

Concrete turrets lord over the quant hillside township of Buda. These architectural sentinels have withstood centuries of assault launched by human and nature alike. Today, tourists mill around the ramparts enjoying panoramic views of Pest across the mythic Danube. I overheard an apt comment by...More

The best view in Budapest? Certainly the best of our trip. Plus there's a cafe right on the rooftop which would be an excellent place for lunch (although we had already eaten)

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian

time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
