Offering views over the Danube and Budapest is Gellért Hill, which is a 235-metre hill in the city of Budapest, Hungary. The hill was named after Saint Gerard who was thrown to his death from the hill. In the early 18th century the hill was used as a vineyard. The Citadel was built on top of the hill in the 19th century due to it offering a strategic advantage for shelling. Today the hill is an affluent residential area.
You can get public transport to the bottom of the hill. Metro line M4 runs to ‘Szent Gellért tér‘, from there you can walk up the hill to its peak.
Opening Times and Admission
The hill is a public area, so is free to roam at any hour of any day.
