Beautiful place. Entrance for 1500 HUF. Mathiase church can be reached by bus no. 16 from City-Center.

Second best place to get views. Beautiful area but to get to the top tier they charge but from the lower tier the views are as good. Be aware it was very busy when we visited but to be expected.

We saw this as part of a tour to Mattias Church. It was worth the visit-the views are amazing! Bring your camera!

The view from this restaurant is the best in the entire city. It’s worth going for just the view (which is what we did). We were able to sit on the terrace which allowed us to enjoy the view for our entire dinner. In my...More

Good condition, interesting piece of architecture. But really there is very little to see and you will be one of thousands of tourists from the riverboats and tours. No point paying the fee as all you get is a little more privacy. The interiors are...More

Beautiful attraction in itself (awesome stonework), plus you get the sweeping views of the Pest side, across the river. Chimney cakes available in the Bastion (of course, what else?).

Great to walk around & admire the views over Budapest. Steep climb up to top of this hill, but worth it

There's not allot here but the view is magnificent. It is a simple walk way and the larger section is part of a restaurant and not admissible with the ticket.
