    We walked over from the Pest side of the river and came up to the castle via a funicular and eventually walked across to the church and the fishermen’s bastion. This is a special magical area over in Buda right on the Danube. Highly recommended.

    Of all the cities we sailed past on our Danube River cruise Budapest is the most stunning. The way the city spreads across both banks and the incredible historic sites on both banks makes it unlike any other city in Europe. We sailed from Passau, Germany to here and now we are so enamored we are planning a trip from Budapest to the Black Sea and perhaps even a city stay.

    The palace grounds provides a panoramic view of the Danube River and the City of Pest. It’s worth the effort to get there. It’s easily accessible by the trams and by the funicular railroad. The views are spectacular. Some of the buildings are being restored. There is a bar on the grounds where you can get a couple glasses of wine, sit by the statue in front of the palace and watch the world go by. Best place for people watching.

    A lovely break from the hustle and bustle of the city; easily accessible by tram from the city centre. You can either walk through the park or hire a cart to cycle round; either are a great option. Beautifully maintained with lots of flowers, there is also a monastery at the end of the walk which is lovely. We spent about 2-3 hours here and it costs nothing for entry. There are food carts dotted around if you want to eat something as well as toilets, but these are usually 250 HUF per visit. Would recommend

    To say reaching the top in 30 degrees of afternoon heat and humidity was a trek would be an understatement. To say I was more than delighted that I did, would also be an understatement. The views are spectacular. The views are spectacular. Panoramic. There is an energy about this place that is hard to explain. It almost feels like you become revitalised after every viewing point.

    Was so looking forward to seeing it, having seen it feature in so many photos of Budapest... But it is currently closed and completely under cover for renovation.

    It was excellent place with great view...a town inside a castle, like you were lost in the previous century...

    Amazing- like a portal into the 80s. So many different machines! We thought it could get boring doing the same thing but they had so many other games aside from pinball (we spent 5 hours down there without even realising). Also great as they displayed information about the dates and creators of the machines.

    We were taken here on a guided tour and given the history of the various key figures. This is an impressive place highlighting Hungary’s history. The horse is a major part of their national psyche. The monuments are rich in meaning and well worth a visit.

    The citadel is closed to be renovated. But it is worth to go there and see the beautiful view of Budabest especially at night. There is so dark so don’t forget to have a flashlight in your phone :)

    Nice traditional bulding, an interesting tour with fancy chocolates. We came with a gift coupon, took part with a group of 15-20 people. It was wholesome. Recommended!

    The castle is in a very big park. We climbed up a tower to have a beautiful view from the top. The ticket was very cheap. But walking around is for free, unless you want ro go into the castle. Various statues around. Look out for the Anonymous statue! Beautiful buildings.

    We really enjoyed our visit to the zoo; lots to see and a variety of animals. It was approx 3000 HUF for entry (which is minimal for the amount of things to see and do and in comparison to British Zoos). Accessible by tram and metro.

    There are lots of interactive things for children and numerous indoor sections with animals / exhibits to see. We loved the butterfly tent, the gorillas and the section with the bats :) the animals all looked very well looked after and happy.

    There were several places to eat around the Zoo and lots of seating areas if you wanted to take your own packed lunch for the day.

    Would highly recommend
