    My very special place. Unique architecture and stunning views over the Danube. Come before sunset and watch the city lights come up! No words could describe it... my favorite spot in Budapest. 💛

    Beautiful views of the Danube & Parliament here. Come at least 30 minutes before sunset if you want a spot to watch the city lights come up. No need to pay for the view - bottom tier is free & same.

    Head to the entrance across from the Hilton. We got upstairs for €1 and it has an amazing panoramic view. I'd still recommend it even if you have also done the citadel.

    One of my favorite places in Budapest! Head over there on the end of the afternoon and take your time (maybe in the restaurant there) until the sunset. The city by night is also stunning.

    Awesome views of the City. No need to pay for the "panoramic view". Walk all the way up to the tower and you find a place to but water, sit on the table and enjoy the view.

    The admission fee for the top level seemed to have been suspended when I went in November 2014. Even if you have to pay though, it's probably worth it, for the views and the architecture.

    You can take your photo with a falconer and see the whole city from this "mountain." Head into the residential area afterwards for lunch.

    For me, the most amazing place in Budapest. You'll feel yourself in one of middle times castles. Amazing ambiance and sceen! If you wont see, you will lose so many things!

    In the night the view is amazing, especially from the top (which is free in the night) Budapest looks amazing with night lights. But it's windy, you might get cold.

    If you're looking to take that perfect insta worthy shot, definitely come early before the masses storm this place. Bathroom is €1. You needn't pay extra for the roped off €1 view.

    Amazing view from this historic view, just look for the free parts, the parts were you need to pay are not worthy. Amazing to watch Pest and the Parlament

    You can pay to go to the top level or stay on the ground level for free! While looking at the cafe go to the left. There is a small opening where you can get to a ledge to overlook the city for free!

    Nice views. We visited before 9am and no tickets were needed. Even with tickets only half is open for walking - the other half is comprised of a museum and a cafe.

    Ideal pace for a picknick. Best view when it's dark and luckily that's the moment it's free. Second best view of Budapest (after Gellert Hill)

    This is cool and a nice view, but I think the existence of Disneyland kind of ruins it for me. It's kind of like real life Disneyland castles.

    Don't pay for this, just visit it late in the evening. It's very beautifull ... with all the buildings, the lights and the views on the city.

    What a view! Food is great and modern (not for a local experience) and mind the drinks as the check rises pretty fast.

    The terrace was built in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style between 1895 and 1902.

    Please don't pay for the views, it doesn't worth cuz you can see it for free, for example in Ciutadella or next to de payment zone, where is a restaurant!
