You'll encounter some of the best views of Budapest and the Danube at Liberty Statue, home to the Citadella, a World Heritage Site. This hillside played host to several vineyards in the 18th century and currently features several embassies and expensive homes. The reigning Habsburg Austrians built the citadel atop the hill after the Hungarian revolts of 1948 and 1949. Hike to the fortress at the summit of this 235 m (771 ft) rock hill for views of the city below.

  • Great views overlooking the whole city although the citadel was closed at the time of visiting. Signage was very poor and you wouldn't know of the works until you get to the very top! More work should be done to accommodate tourists on the paths.
  • A huge climb to get to your reward... The Liberty Statue. There I was, standing in front of a construction 'closed' sign. The entire show was unavailable at the time when tourists come. With no warning down the mountain this is a really bad experience.
