It is a nice hike, not too hard but prepare comfortable shoes.

The Citadel, which sits atop Gellert Hill, was constructed by the Hapsburgs following the failed Hungarian War of Independence. It was thought that its prime strategic position would make it easy to control both Buda and Pest, should any future uprisings occur. Troops were stationed at the Citadel…

In exchange for the half-hour cardio exercise that's required to mount the verdant Gellért Hill, your reward will be sweeping 360-degree views of Budapest. For the best experience, take the path that's to the south of the hill, setting off opposite Gellért Bath, and descend on the other side.

Farmers Market
“The Great Market Hall in central Budapest is Budapest’s most famous marketplace. Whilst many locals still use the market hall as a place to buy their groceries, the market is incredibly popular with the tourists too. Locally grown fruits and veg, and locally sourced meats are found on the lower floors, and souvenirs including lace, chess sets and leather goods are available in the upper floors. As well as individual ingredients, it is possible to pick up homemade local delicacies like goulash and langos from the food stall upstairs.”

Island
“Huge island in the middle of the Danube in the city. It has everything for a fun day out, including a singing and dancing fountain, sprawling rose garden, mini-zoo, convent ruin, food & drink, Japanese Garden with ponds, big meadows for picnic or sports, large outdoor pools (you need to pay in to these). It’s quite a walk to go around it so nice to rent a pedal carriage, or hop on the little sightseeing train to get familiar with the area. ”

Coffee Shop
“Budapest is a unique city in more than one ways. For those who love spa and wellness, it is unique for being the only large city in the world, which abounds in fountains of healing water. 70 million liters of 21-78 Celsius warm thermal water spring forth daily from its 118 natural thermal springs. No wonder, that as early as in 1934, Budapest was awarded the supreme title "Spa City". Three years later, the first International Balneological Congress was organised, and the seat of the International Balneological Association was established at the Gellért Thermal Bath in Budapest. The Congress reasoned with the following words: "...no city can put forward a stronger claim to this than Budapest. Endowed by nature with a wonderful generosity of excellent thermal waters and unrivalled natural beauty; additionally, its high medical professionalism, the excellent equipment of its healing institutions, the high level of scientific research, makes Budapest the optimum choice for international affairs of balneology to be handled from here..." The Gellert Bath and Hotel itself was built in the preceding decades, and opened its doors in 1918. Outdoor pools were added later on, and today it combines modern technical developments with rich historical heritage.”

Scenic Lookout
“Although the Fisherman’s Bastion looks like a medieval monument, it was actually built in the early 20th century in a neo-Gothic style, specifically to act as a panoramic viewing platform across the Danube, Margaret Island and Pest. It is named after the Guild of Fishermen, which was responsible for defending that stretch of the city walls during the Middle Ages. The seven towers of the Bastion represent the seven Magyar tribes that helped to settle the Magyar people in the Carpathian Basin. Come at sunset to see a particularly beautiful view of the city.”
