Tour description

We invite you to join us to explore Buda Castle Hill, the city’s most beautiful and historic district that dates back to the 13th century, and learn more about the world - famous Matthias Church, Fisherman’s Bastion, Royal Palace, and other notable architectural icons. 

You’ll also learn about the various periods of history which influenced this neighborhood and the transformation of this picturesque neighborhood while walking along the cobblestone lanes, twisting alleys, and secret gardens from the Civic part to the Royal part of the Castle District listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List of Sights. 

Buda Castle Hill walk can not be complete without the whole world's underground cave system that goes back hundreds of thousands of years with roles including wine storage, the hospital in the rock, and shelter during World War II.

Major sights we are passing by:

  • Matthias Church
  • Fisherman’s Bastion
  • Maria Magdalena church ruins
  • Buda Castle Promenade
  • Jewish Medieval Praying House
  • Dominican Monastery ruins
  • Royal Palace area with Matthias Courtyard

Our leisurely walk in the Castle District will be a warmly remembered experience.

Joining our tour has loads of benefits. Ask for our personal Budapest map, our Budapest newsletter with free outdoor activities, do's and dont's, must see places with opening hours, and much much more. At the end of our tours, we do not run away.  You have plenty of time to ask questions and make the most out of your travel experience!

Great tour, lots of interesting information from Dora. It was raining, so a lot of people didn't arrive, which was a shame, but Dora continued and did the tour with just a few of us, and in the end, just 3 of us ! She was happy, full of fun and information, she was a delight, thank you Dora

Good tour. Would recommend doing at the start of your holiday. Our Guru was Hungarian and was very informative. Enjoyed visiting each stop. We actually returned to Buda (was staying in Pest) the following day to explore more.

Charlotte is a fantastically animated tour guide who clearly LOVES what she does. I really enjoyed her style and was able to learn so much more about the beautiful Buda side of the city.
