Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest is a fairytale lookout point, offering some of the best views of Budapest. Plus, being over 100 year’s old in age, it has a beautiful and romantic feel to it, like something straight out of a classic Disney film. This viewpoint is open all year-round – day and night, making it the perfect place to venture for an evening stroll after dinner to see Budapest lit up at night.
The many domes and towers here rise far above the city, and since the Middle Ages, the seven turrets have represented the seven tribes of Hungary. To climb up to Fisherman’s Bastion (being one of the highest points in the city), there is a small charge but afterwards, you can relax in the café on the terrace and enjoy the panoramic views.
From these lofty heights, you can see the spectacular Buda Castle, excellent views of the Danube river and all of the historical jewels along the waterfront – which make it a UNESCO World Heritage site.
