What travelers say:

The Fisherman's Castle is next to the Buda Castle. The Fisherman's Castle offers a view of the city, the Parliament Building, the chain bridge and, of course, the beautiful Danube. The Fisherman's Castle is said to have been built by Hungarian fishermen to protect themselves from foreign enemies.

Additional Information

Introduction

Pack your camera for a trip to Budapest’s Fisherman’s Bastion, reputed to offer the best views in this historic city. Built in 1902, the massive neo-Gothic, neo-Romanesque structure sits atop Castle Hill in a location adjacent to Matthias Church. Filled with winding staircases, parapets, turrets and white stone projections, on a clear day, the Bastion offers unrivaled views of Margaret Island, Saint Stephen’s Basilica and Parliament. Seven towers that symbolize the seven historic tribes of Hungary offer the best photography angles; you can enter them for a small fee. Entrance to the rest of the Bastion terrace is free of charge.
