This was one of the highlights in Budapest! Fisher Bastion is allready a wonderfull place itself, but it also offers a great view to Budapest.
A quirky looking landmark that looks a lot older than its is. A wander around the walls the with the wonderful Mattais chruch in the background is a must.
The views of the city are superb!!
* The name comes from the fact that it was built on the site of a former fish market. It is an excellent look-out place, offering great view on the other bank of Danube

St. Istvan Statue at Fisherman's Bastion
A statue of St. Istvan, Hungary's first Christian king, stands in front of Fisherman's Bastion. One of my earlier tips on Budapest has a short bio of St. Istvan (Stephen).
View from the Fisherman Bastion
That´s a great view from Fisherman´s Bastion. I loved it. Here you see the river Donau and the Parliament.
I can recommend to make a guided tour in the Parliament. I know it´s in german or english.
I do not know why the name is fisherman bastion. But there you have a great view about Budapest and the Donau. It is near the Matthew Church and there are a lot´s of tourists...
This strange looking monument was built in 1905 and is dedicated to the fishermen who helped defend Budapest from enemy attack in the middle ages.

Taken from Halaszbastya(Fishermen Bastion). It's a big contrast between modern and ancient. It's a pity that this picture wasn't scanned well!!!!! :(
The View from the Top
The view from the top of the Bastion looking back to the Pest side. You get a clear view of Parliament and much further if the weather is clear.
A fairytale like structure overlooking the Danube, built on the site of an old fish market. Traditionally known as the place where the fishermen were supposed to have defended the castle wall.

This consists of a tower that would not look out of place in Disneyland. It gives a great view across the Danube.
It is a touristy place but nevertheless romantic with the fairy tale look of the bastion and one of the best city views. Also popular with buskers.

Regardless of the season,...
Regardless of the season, Fishermen´s bastion
(Buda side) is worth a visit.
Considering the crowds in summer, the cold season might not even be that bad a choice in this case!
