Owner description: Built during the 19th century for the Hungarian Millennium celebrations, this mock bastion features pointed towers and turrets, reminiscent of the fairytale castles in Disney World.

Fishermans Bastion is a must while you are in Budapest. We walked up and found it very pleasant, but did notice a lot of buses and taxis between the Castle and here.

The views are stunning and the buildings up here lovely. We paid a small amount to go into the Church which was simply gorgeous, as well as up the tower (200 steps) for great views.

Plenty of seating around about, plenty of cafes too and more to explore in Buda once you're up here.

Beautiful views of the Danube and the chain bridge.
Reminded us of the trulli in Alberobello, Italy.

If you get a chance this is a beautiful place. Great photo ops. We went with a private tour guide who told us about the history and the reason for all the different areas and that made the beautiful area even more interesting. If you don't have a guide I would recommend reading about it to add to your experience.
