The Fisherman’s Bastion on Castle Hill is one of the most beautiful buildings in Budapest. This fairytale-like structure was built in honour of Budapest’s 1000th anniversary at the end of the 19th century as a panoramic terrace. Made with white natural stone walls, full of stairs, arcades and seven fairy white towers overlooking the whole city.

It is a real eye-catcher with its colourful and unique roof decorated with majolica tiles. Walk around this imposing Fisherman’s Bastion and be sure to take a look inside. It is very photogenic and one of the best things to do in Budapest. The Fishermen’s Bastion is open to the public all day and is free of charge.
