The view from the car is the same you get from many places. The ride is very short and not spectacular. There is a queue but it moves fairly quick. If you want to avoid climbing you can take the ride up and walk down,...More

Nothing spectacular here. It's ok but not a really exciting trip. I would just walk rather than take the Funicular.

While the cars on the track looks authentict, the view from it really isn’t why you should jump on it. The ride took a minute, i guess, and the cars were too packed with other turists, like myself, trying to take a fancy panorama through...More

They charged us 1,800 Hungarian Forint each way, thinking it was an entry to the castle. Let me tell you, you can walk up a set of steps if you walk 5 mins or less to the left of the Funicular. When you’re up there...More

Yes, this definitely beats walking up that steep hill, but it's a bit expensive (about 6 euro) and a very short ride. I think it takes about 2 minutes maybe? Long line to buy tickets and to get a ride. Cars are small, can only...More

The Siklo was convenient and fast (although in fairness it doesn't have far to go). I found it a bit expensive for what it was to be honest, but if you want to go to Castle Hill and don't fancy the walk, then it does...More

The one-way fare of 1,200-Ft is relatively expensive for a 1 1/2 minute ride. (It is about 800-Ft per minute.) Before you know it, you are already at the top. Given the number of people waiting to ride the funicular, it is very likely you...More
