Trip Planner: Europe / Hungary / Central Hungary / Budapest / Fisherman's Bastion
The seven fairy tale-like towers of Fisherman's Bastion offer views of the Danube and Pest side of the city. Built in the late 19th century and restored after World War II, this Neo-Gothic and Neo-Romanesque structure within World Heritage Site Buda Castle takes its name from the medieval fisherman who defended these city walls. On the Buda side of the city, walk up or take a funicular to the top of Castle Hill to get to the bastion, near the 14th-century Matthias Church. Step inside one of the seven towers for spectacular views across the Danube River. Using our international travel planner, Budapest attractions like Fisherman's Bastion can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

It's like a dream😴💭. Amazing beauty. The best place after Hungarian Parliament is the Fisherman's Bastion. Free. No charges. You can have a great view of Danube & Budapest. Great place to click photos not only of views but also of yours. Loved. Nearby good eating joints. Spend at least half day here.
Amazing place, beautiful architecture. Fisherman's Bastion you can visit all for free. No charges. A great view of river Danube and Budapest is given from here. Nearby are good eating joints, places for coffee, you can spend whole day here. You will enjoy in every corner of this beautiful Bastion. Prepare your phones and cameras!
My recommendation is to visit this place before sunset and observe sunset during hot summer days. The place provides beautiful opportunity to see Budapest and sun will paint the sky and makes amazing atmosphere. I don’t know why, but no tickets were needed.
Absolutely stunning piece of architecture with even more stunning views!!! The views of the Pest were absolutely amazing! The place is a huge tourist attraction so it does get crowded during the day. Next time I visit, I will be sure to see it at sunset as other have suggested!
Fisherman’s Bastion is a magical and wonderful place to visit. It has a beautiful architecture like Harry Potter and medieval buildings. It has beautiful panoramic views. I would highly recommend to go for a beautiful photo at sunrise, lunch time, sunset and at night. There are many stairs but it’s worth it. The toilet costs €1 but you’d rather go to Starbucks as it’s free there.
