Come with us to the Imperial Cities of Prague, Vienna and Budapest to see one of the top Budapest attractions: Fisherman's Bastion.  

Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest is one of the top Budapest attractions without a doubt. The present day lovely lookout towers/ decorative fortification of Fisherman’s Bastion were built in the 19th century to serve as a lookout tower for the best panoramic views in Budapest, Hungary. Needless to say, there used to be real castle walls where now you can take fantastic photos from, but the present day structure has never served as an actual fortification in Buda.

  • Entrance fee: free balconies combined with fee paying top turrets
  • 7 turrets to represent the 7 Hungarian tribes who founded the present day country in 895
  • Cafe on the terrace of the Fisherman’s Bastion Budapest
  • Chapel inside the Fisherman’s Bastion Budapest (open from March 2013)
  • Protected by the guild of the fishermen during the Middle Ages, hence the name
