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.

  • One of the must-sees on your Budapest trip. Beautiful panoramic view. Unfortunately, the memorial closed for renovations, but we were still able to enjoy the breathtaking views of this magnificent city. Good place to go for trekking.
  • A healthy hike up the hill with very nice panorama views of the city. The statue is sadly currently (July 30, 2022) under maintenance with a fence around it, but you can still get a decent look at it! Overall definitely worth the climb.
