Fisherman's Bastion


4.6 (11)

Fisherman's Bastion (Halászbástya) is only 100 years old (Built from 1895 to 1902) , and is a favorite lookout in the city located on the Buda Castle Hill in the I. district. The Danube and the Parliament building can perhaps be seen at their finest from the vantage point of the Fisherman's Bastion. In medieval times, the fish market was nearby and the bastion was built to commemorate the fishermen who protected this part of the city. The neo-Roman Halászbástya has seven tent-like turrets symbolizing the seven Hungarian tribes that arrived to the Carpathian Basin in 896.
Fisherman's Bastion, as part of the Buda Castle District, has been a World Heritage site since 1987.

You can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee at the Panoramia Cafe & Bar or try a fine dining meal at the Halászbástya Restaurant located in one of the turrets open all year round.

It is not neccessary to go up to the level where there is admission fee, since you can see the same beautiful view from the last free level. Also you can enjoy a cup of coffee looking at the Danube and the Parlmiament from the Panorama Coffee or the Fine Dining Halászbástya Restaurant.
