This place is everything. From here you can see how Budapest is perfect. You can see so many beautiful bridges. The view is just perfect, you have to see it to believe it

Probably one of the highest places in Budapest. Perfect for taking photos and looking over the fort on the hill. One of the few places where you will not be charged for the privilege of being there.

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being

Buenos noches! ¿Alguien sabe si la Fortaleza de la Citadel en Budapest està cerrada temporalmente o si el cierre es definitivo? Vamos a ir a Budapest el próximo agosto (2016) y estamos dispuestos a subir a la Citadel sólo si podemos visitar la fortificación. Gracias por vuestra ayuda. Saludos. A Cuesta
