  • Very beautiful place for sightseeing the landscape! It's worth going for contemplating the Sunset. Many gift stores and restaurants nearby. You can go by transport or walking (easy/medium level) inside a cool track. Restrooms available for free. Definitely a 'must-see' spot!!!
  • Short and steep hike up the hill with views at the top to definitely make it worthwhile - not to mention the beer vendor. We got to the top at the golden hour, just before sunset. Great views of Budapest and the Danube.
