Main visitor attraction in Budapest. Much more than just a castle more like a small town. So much to see and do there. And the views over the river to the city are stunning

We visited both the National History and National Gallery on 2 separate days. Good quality museums and the exterior of the castle belies the modern interiors. Still a work in progress outside. Beautiful views of buda and pest and Danube from this location.

The walk over the bridge and up to the castle is very enjoyable and pretty and the views from the top are amazing. You can see the Budapest skyline as well as the buildings along the water such as the Budapest parliament which is astonishing....More

We didn't think there was any need to spend a great deal of time here. Good for the views but for us, little else. It looks superb at night when it's lit. We walked down - the path is right beside the funicular railway.

The historical center to a city with a multifarious
