General Information

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.

Best views in the city


Easily the best elevated views in the city are seen from here in my opinion. Fairly easy to get to on the metro with a short walk from the stop. and completely free too, Awesome.
