For me the place came to life when dusk fell. The city views and the Danube looked fantastic! Highly recommended.

The major attractions here are Mathias Church & Fishermans bastion as you do not have access to the Royal Palace.

We really enjoyed walking around the castle hill neighborhood and looking at the nice buildings and homes. We had no problem walking up the stairs to the castle, no need to pay for funicular. Took the public bus back to Pest.
