"Gellert Hill" Gellert Hill (Hegy) Tip by cobrioc
Gellert Hill (Hegy), Budapest: 5 reviews and 8 photos
Favorite thing: Gellert Hill is the perfect vantage point to view central Budapest. At the summit are the Liberation Monument and Citadella.
The hill itself is named after Bishop Gellert who had been invited by St. Stephen to help convert pagan Magyars to Christianity.
Fondest memory: As legend goes , in the wake of Stephen's death, Gellert met his untimely death after being toppled of the hillside in a barrel by militant heathens. His bronze statue stands on the spot where he was martyred.
To reach the summit you can either climb the winding paths from the statue or Hotel Gellert , or catch a bus to the top.
The panoramic views from the summit are
unparalled elsewhere in Budapest.
