We queued for 20 minutes for a 2 minute ride. Great view but nothing you couldn't see at the top. Good excuse for an ice cream though You get a bit of hassle from the touts trying to sell you alternatives. The walk would have...More

We have done other funiculars that were much longer, much steeper and less costly, but it was still a unique way to get up to the Castle. The cost was 1200 HUF/person, which is $5.75 CAD for a one-way ticket. The views from the back...More

Sure you can take other modes of transportation or even walk up to castle hill. But why do that when you can make the experience unique by riding a 100 yo FUnicular? Of course you will have a shell out a few Forints but for...More

1,800 HUF for a return trip on the Buda Hill Funicular was surely the best thing I spent money on while in Budapest last weekend. The ride itself is spectacular if a little brief and as a fan of engineering I loved it. The views...More
