The communist times have simply been unfortunate for the Hungarians. A lot of property that held very high cultural value was destroyed and was turned into ruins. The Maria Magdolna Templom is one such example of the destruction of the communist times. This church infact, was the only functional church during the Ottoman regime and even this was soon turned into a mosque. It is located in the Castle district of Buda and today holds a very high position in subtly narrating the unfortunate history of Budapest but also in telling a survival story of its own.

Mary Magdalene Tower, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review

  • It was a nice view and is worth doing, especially as it only cost 900HUF each. But I can't say I was blown away. Maybe I had set expectations too high...going up towers in other old european cities has been my favourite experience there, and maybe that's not a fair comparison. But it's fully enclosed at the top which I think slightly takes away from the experience and just isn't quite the same breathe taking views for me. Don't get me wrong though, it's worth a walk up the 172 steps!

  • Just recently opened the tower has impressive 360 degree views. 172 steps and 900 HUF puts you at the top. They are still working on the place so as yet there are no exhibitions or displays. Just the tower and the views. Still worth it.

  • Nice ruins with an old church done up with modern stylings. Nice to see, can't say whether or not it's worth payingflr anything.

  • Modern (re)construction but nice view and easy access.

  • 172 steps for great views of Budapest!
