I loved this place. This places makes Budapest so special and lovely. You can reach it easily, a lovely walk, fantastic view, gorgeous program for the weekend. Can not wait to go back and try the Libegô. I recommend it to everyone who loves a nice walk.

Its not so difficult to reach from széll kálmán tér. Really nice view and good for short trecking around the city. Absolutely recommended

After riding the Children's Railway we walked up the path to find ourselves at a stop where we could have lunch and then walk further to the tower. Climbing to the top we were rewarded with a fantastic view of Budda Hills to Danube to Pest. It was fun to point out the places we had already been and see... More

We were a little confused on the best way to get to the look out tower but took the number 2 metro from our hotel in Pest to the main bus station and jumped on the number 155 bus from there. We were told it was the last stop but when we got off we couldn't find any signs or... More

Taking the chairlift both up and down, i can't say much about the climbing of the mountain, but the nature upthere is stunning and the Elizabeth point definetly worth a visit. Loads of wasps on the top this time of year, but it was very empty and loads of space for exploration when we were there! Also, taking the bus... More

So what it takes and does it worth honestly? If summer, I recommend to take a local bus, go to a planned point and then go for a light hiking. If spring/autumn, then hiking, or take the LIBEGO (=cable car)! It takes fairly long to go up with the ski-slope-like 2 seater cable "cars"to get to the top. Once arrived... More

Got the children's railway to janoshegy and walked the rest of the way. The views are awesome. Really great. We did it in 36c heat and it was a long climb but there's plenty of benches to rest on at the top. A small cafe await, but best of all, the views are free to enjoy for as long as... More

Take the chairlift to the top and you will get your reward! The lookout tower provides a nice view of Budapest!

Take the chair lift and get away from the bustle and noise of the city. The 360 degree views from the monument at the top are well worth the effort. Though we did not have time could also be combined with a visit to the famous railway actually run by children. Another time!
