  • We wandered over to the Gellert Hill a couple of times during our stay as it was so beautiful. The views of the city are breathtaking from up here and well worth the walk.  more »
  • An absolute must while in Budapest. Incredible expansive views of the city. Whether you go up in the evening, stopping at restaurants on the way, or go up for drinks at night, or go on a hangover...  more »
  • This is a great place for hiking - if you like physical activity - follow the "hearts". But you are welcome to know that there is nothing at the top except beautiful views of the city. The best views of Budapest.
  • What a walk but definitely worth it. We had a lovely weather and enjoyable walk through the mount it is peaceful and nice to feel above the vibrant city of Budapest. With good weather conditions you can see pretty far
