Top Budapest attractions

Budapest History Museum

Castle Hill

Castle Hill is a huge plateau standing 170 meters above the Danube. It is an UNESCO World Heritage Site because most of Budapest’s most valued monuments and museums, which you shouldn’t miss, are located here. You will also see the stunning Royal Palace, which is where the castle was constructed in the 13th century. Two museums now stand on the site.

Basilica of St. Stephen

The construction of this cathedral took many years to be completed. Its dome shattered in 1868 during a storm, requiring the entire building to be destroyed and completely rebuilt. In 1905, workers finished construction. Go to the top of the cathedral’s new dome; the view is one of the most magnificent in Budapest. Then go behind the main altar to the Holy Right Chapel, where you will see the preserved right hand, called the Holy Right (or Holy Dexter), of St. Stephen. There are guided tours in English at various times during the weekdays.

Dreher Brewery and Beer Museum

Check out the museum at Hungary’s largest beer producer’s brewery. Besides being allowed a tasting session, you can see how their beer has been brewed and bottled over the past centuries and watch a movie about the beer-making process.

Holocaust Memorial Centre

Pages from the ‘Auschwitz Album’ are displayed here. The photographs, found by a survivor after being freed, show the grisly internment and extermination of the Hungarian Jews. In 2004, the centre opened on the Hungarian Holocaust’s 60th anniversary. There is also a revitalised synagogue from 1924, which hosts exhibitions.
