Liberty Statue Reviews
We walk to the hill in winter. The scenery was amazing with trees in snow. From top the view is great although it was quite foggie. You must try from the street food gullash in bread more »
If you haven't seen Budapest from Gellert Hill so you missed the most beautiful views! I went there at night and the city lights were impressive. more »
Great walk uphill! Great view! There’s a bar if you’re thirsty when you finishing puffing from the uphill walk 😂 I made this my first stop and carried on down the hill towards the other must see sights! Great day well worth it! In autumn the view is very pretty!
A “must visit” place! Many, many places to be in Budapest and that one is one of the best. You have to walk about 20 minutes in nice park and alleys above the “Liberty bridge”. Amazing sightseeing and views to Budapest and Danube river. There is a coffee and beer shop as well as many small gift shops around. Enjoy your walk!
