The seven fairy tale-like towers of Fisherman's Bastion offer views of the Danube and Pest side of the city. Built in the late 19th century and restored after World War II, this Neo-Gothic and Neo-Romanesque structure within World Heritage Site Buda Castle takes its name from the medieval fisherman who defended these city walls. On the Buda side of the city, walk up or take a funicular to the top of Castle Hill to get to the bastion, near the 14th-century Matthias Church. Step inside one of the seven towers for spectacular views across the Danube River.

  • If you are only able to visit one single spot during your stay, you should go to Halaszbastya. We walked up from the Metro station which took roughly 10min.

  • Our wedding reception took place in this fine establishment and I could not have been more satisfied. The food tasted rich and unique, the combination of modern and classical was absolutely balanced. Tasted delicious, looked amazing and the ambiance is one of a kind. It's worth it ! Go there!
  • This location is absolutely stunning. I made a lot of beautiful photos there and this place keeps surprising. When you think that all the possibilities have been photographed you still find new spots. I recommend to go early in the morning, with the sun rise or why not during the night. At those times there’s absolutely 0 people and you can enjoy making pictures without hordes of tourists running around.
