    The Fisherman's Bastion is a great place to view the Danube and the view across the river. It is a good place for some souvenirs and to tour St. Mathias Church. It is worth the walk if you are not already staying in the Castle District.

    A bit strange that the ticket office is in an adjacent street rather than at the church entrance. (Tickets can also be purchased online).
    The main building is grand in its splendor but the signage to the viewing platform is poor. There is a lift that takes you part way followed by an unlit spiral staircase. This surely contravenes health and safety. Apparently, there is an additional lift but again the signs to this are non-existent.
    Views from the top, however, are second to none, albeit the perimeter is also too narrow when it is crowded.

    Doing a cruise on the Danube at night in Budapest harbor area is something to see with all the buildings lit up - just beautiful.

    This area would take a couple of days to properly look round. It’s smart, clean. It’s a bit Disney with history. Huge amount of renovations going on. I’ll be sure to return when it’s done!

    This is a lovely memorial for victims who were shot into the Danube river, worth stopping by while in the city.

    Highly recommend when visiting Budapest! Every hour on the hour there is a musical fountain show which is really neat to watch!
    Once it gets dark it lights up
    At 9pm it lasts for an entire hour

    Great views over Budapest and the Danube. Worth the climb (which really isn’t that bad!). It was a shame the monument wasn’t open.

    This bridge is currently being renovated so much of its beauty is obscured. The lions that proudly guarded each end have been removed for safekeeping while the bridge itself is repaired and refinished.

    There is so much to see on the hill where Buda Castle is. This is just one of the lovely spots. The roof is especially beautiful. Lovely walk around

    This area was reduced to rubble during World War Two, but over the past several decades this historic district has been rebuilt in a fashion reminiscent of the original. The district is packed with points of interest, beautiful buildings, and many vantage points offer panoramic views of the Danube River and Pest which stretch out below.

    AMAZING and not to be missed. I took my teens along to show them my "gaming" past life and a great time was had by all. It is mind boggling all the machines here and not just pinball but all the classics. Honestly it is a brilliant way to spend a few hours. It does get loud so if you have anyone in your group that is sensitive to noise then I suggest they bring along some noise cancelling headphones or ear buds. The gentleman at the cash desk is super friendly and kind. AND if by chance you really have time to kill then you can re-enter as many times as you like that day. If you have kids I highly recommend going when it opens at 4 as it does get busier later on. Hats off the the owner who has done a great job. Once you pay admission you don't need coins of tokens for the machines just rock up and play. We even got t-shirts! (this is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from Westend Shopping Mall)

    great experience. The museum staff helped with photography and were patient and flowed with our nonsense and did so with a smile.

    Fascinating museum and great tour guide -Ezster was very knowledgeable!
    Tour size was slightly too large so made some aspects difficult to hear or see.
