Budapest Castle Hill Funicular Tours

Open since 1870, the Budapest Castle Hill Funicular carries passengers from Clark Adam Square and the Szechenyi Chain Bridge up to Buda Castle nearly 200 feet (61 m) above. Just the second funicular railway built in Europe, it was destroyed in World War II and reopened in 1986. More than 300 feet long, the funicular runs at a 40-degree incline and takes passengers up the equivalent of 30 flights of stairs. Two cars carry 24 passengers each and run in opposite directions; one is running uphill while the other runs downhill. On clear days, passengers enjoy superb views of the Danube River and the west side of Budapest as they ascend the funicular. There are also two pedestrian bridges crossing over the funicular tracks which offer closer views of the cars for those walking down from Buda Castle.

Practical Info

The base of the funicular is located on Clark Adam Square, just over the Szechenyi Chain Bridge on the Buda side of the Danube River. While it is within walking distance of many hotels on the Pest side by crossing the bridge, you can also take a tram or bus to Clark Adam Square. Funicular cars run every five to 10 minutes and the trip takes just a couple minutes.
