Liberty Statue Reviews
Took the little train up the hill towards the Citadella then walked up to the top to the big statue. Lovely views of the city from the top especially the river and the bridges. Walked all the way... more »

Great walk uphill! Great view! There’s a bar if you’re thirsty when you finishing puffing from the uphill walk 😂 I made this my first stop and carried on down the hill towards the other must see sights! Great day well worth it! In autumn the view is very pretty!
A “must visit” place! Many, many places to be in Budapest and that one is one of the best. You have to walk about 20 minutes in nice park and alleys above the “Liberty bridge”. Amazing sightseeing and views to Budapest and Danube river. There is a coffee and beer shop as well as many small gift shops around. Enjoy your walk!
