At World Heritage Site Buda Castle, you'll encounter medieval architecture, lush gardens, and centuries of royal Hungarian and Austro-Hungarian history. Though Nazis stole the palace's luxurious room exhibits in the 1940s, the building is still home to the Hungarian National Gallery, which holds significant collections of Hungarian art. It is also the site of the Budapest History Museum and National Szechenyi Library. This 13th-century structure has been renovated and modernized after it was nearly destroyed in World War II. Explore the surrounding neighborhood, known as the Castle District, which is celebrated for its historic houses, churches, and public buildings.

I haven’t been inside so far, but the outside is outstanding. It’s been having renovations for a while, so there is always some part that you can’t get to see due this, but the rest is really nice. Good views of the city and the parliament
Beautiful architecture, amazing view over the city! Highly recommend going here at night so you can see the city and the bridges with all the lights. Going up I went by foot and it wasn't hard at all, really easy to walk and relax while going up.
