There are many ways to get up to castle hill. Worth to mention are the two gates at the northern and southern end of the hill. Stairs are found on the eastern side, all close to the tunnel/Clark Adam ter. At Clark Adam ter, you?ll also find a funicular railway (Sikló) which was built in 1870. It was destroyed during WWII and rebuilt long after its end ? in 1986. It operates (with some exceptions) daily between 07:30 and 22:00, single way tickets are available from around 600 ft. Note that an uphill ticket costs more than a downhill ticket.

Address: District I, Szent Gyorgy ter and Clark Adam ter
Directions: Next to the bridge at Clark Adam Square. Access by buses #4express, 16, 86, 105 (Clark Adam ter stop) or trams #19, 41 (Lanchid stop).
