Hiking tour of the highest and oldest spots


This tour is a combination of hiking in the nature and an insight into the Medieval history and culture of Budapest. The tour is designed for sporty visitors both young people and seniors. The tour consists of three parts:
- Nature and the best waterfront view: the peak of Gellert Hill with its spectacular urban view and a walk on the interesting forest track on the other side of the hill.
- Off the beaten path nature: Sun Mount (Naphegy) with a break in a typical old pub and a special botanical garden.
- Oldest cultural site: Castle of Buda with the Medieval district, Matthias Church and Fishermen's Bastion, Royal Palace and the river view from its terraces.
The tour ends in Pest city center after a nice walk accross the Danube on Elisabeth Bridge.
The tour can be held only in good weather conditions! If the weather is bad and we cannot move the tour to an other day, I will offer you one of my other 4-hour tours in the same price: World Heritage Tour, The Heart of It All.

Itinerary

Our first stop will be on the peak of Gellert Hill. On the way up we follow the most Romantic mountain trail. Once we get to the top we can admire one of the most spectacular urban views of the world. Then we will walk down on the other side of the hill, exploring two breath-taking monuments: the Philosophers' Garden and the "Kings's Wedding".

We will continue accross the Sun Mount (Naphegy) where we will take a break in an original pub building left untouched from the centuries. As we walk downhills we will explore a special botanical garden which has one of every tree species of Hungary.

From there we will climb the fortified Castle of Buda. Once we are there we will see old Buda town with its Medieval houses, Matthias Church and Fishermen's Bastion with an amazing view over the Danube river. Finally we will explore the Royal Palace and its terraces. We will walk downstairs towards Elizabeth Bridge and once we cross the bridge we will head towards the city center where our tour ends.

A Recent Review of this tour

It was a pleasure to meet Adam and learn about his life in Hungary. He was very interesting to talk to, as well as being very informative and helpful. We enjoyed the tour very much. It was quite energetic and you would need to be reasonably fit to do it but we had some lovely views of Budapest and learnt a lot about the town and its history.
