The Eye looks better during night, but the views from it are better during daytime. The "trip" lasted 5 spins and the ticket was 9 euros.

Crazy when it comes to the mill is not especially for 8 euros. The maximum height of 65 meters. For one ticket were laps by 10 min. Offering views of Budapest and even at night! 42 cars and the best in Europe Eye. It has...More

3 years ago summertime we have visited Deak Ferenc ter, and the `eye` in the evening. It was a very good walk from Heroes' Square through the city in late evening, and around the eye there is Basilica, lots of people, youth, tourists, couples, friends,...More

Best by night when you can enjoy the Budapest skyline. Fairly expensive, but gets affordable if you combine with the Hop-on hop-off bus.

If you look online, the Sziget Eye says it is coming back sometime in 2016 as an even larger and more pleasant ferris wheel, so I can only comment on my experience in September of 2015, allegedly a few weeks before it originally closed. The...More

The place give a really beautiful overview of the city, I truly recommend, best at night. If you are a tourist with only a few days, do a "combo" with the hop on hop off bus.

Expensive attraction and the view is not the best. Smaller than in Vienna or London and the windows are dirty.

Enjoy a nice view over the whole city of budapest. It really worth it but the price of 8 Euro is way to high for only 5 rounds.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
