Head in the clouds
Why locals love it
When you first get on the Budapest Chairlift, you are mostly curious and a bit scared too. It's a quick (appr. 15 minutes) but fascinating trip. When you get used to the way of travelling (after the third time or so) you start enjoying the process of travelling. 15 minutes up and down - and you feel as if you did a meditation session.
Why you should visit it
The chairlift takes you from Zugliget to Janos hill from where you can walk a little bit higher and reach The Elizabeth Lookout Tower with the incredible view on Budapest from the top.
Actually the whole journey is breathtaking, from the very moment when you jump on the chairlift seat and start staring around.
Don't take too much luggage with you - chairlift seats are small.
Check the opening hours - they depend on the month!
