We took the funicular to save time, but in hindsight, we probably should have climbed the hill. It is difficult to take photos from the cars. The hill has a very clear, well-marked path and, though it might take a bit more time, it wouldn't be terrible to climb. The funicular was nice, though!
Visited this place on my recent trip, expected to see fantastic views of the city of Budapest, and boy were my expectations met. There are a couple of ways to get to the top of the castle, namely, hike up or take public transport or the funicular. The funicular was by far the most expensive of the 3 options but well worth the experience in my opinion. Although, I was recommend that changes are made to the train capsules that do not allow for a good view, as there are no open windows.
Saved us the steep walk up the hill. Google maps could not clearly tell us how to get up to the Castle and Fisherman's Bastion, and so we went with the funicular - which is the most direct. There are people there trying to sell you bus tickets, and once at the top we saw that city buses got there somehow, but navigating was harder than it looked, and in the end, worth a few Forints to save us the time. We thought walking back down would be easier - and while it is, in some regards, it's also indirect, and it would have been simpler to take the funicular round-trip. For many, it won't be worth the money - just take the long walk with a view - but I'm glad we experienced it at least once. Note, it's a very quick ride, and not easy to take great photos through the windows.
It was my first time riding a funicular. Nothing to fancy, it feels like your typical elevator ride but with a nice view.
The transportation is very handy and located in the heart of the city. Will take you to the top of the hill and one can really have a great view of the old town, the parliament building and the museum of history is right there. The people working there are the worse class, rude, grumpy and will yell at you. If you think you can have a good view while in the transportation, be ready, they scream at you that should be 8 people per wagon, but there are only seats for 4. One better have hungarian money to pay or your credit card, which they don't seem to like.
