Photograph Budapest and the Danube River from Citadella

Added by Margo Schmiederer

A beautiful overlook of the city and Danube

The Citadella is a beautiful overlook of the Danube River and Budapest. It used to serve as a fortress and is now open to the public for free. To get there, you will need to climb many stairs, so it is encouraged to wear comfortable shoes!

There are multiple sites and locations that can provide exquisite view over the Danube river and Citadella is one of them. I would not consider it the best one and most of the other sites were also much more interesting themselves (I mean apart from the view they offer). I highly agree with the OP that should you decide to visit Citadella, wear comfortable shoes! :)
