District I Budavár - Buda side Attractions in Budapest

The Castle Hill of the Buda side occupies a whole district on its own; The Castle District or District I. It dates back to the end of the 13th century and maintains its medieval charm to this very day. It is divided into two main parts: the Royal part occupied by the grand Royal Palace (pick number 3), and the Civilian part with delightful little cobble stone streets (the most beautiful one being our fourth pick, the Úri Street) and baroque buildings resembling the Medieval Town plan. A beautiful panorama opens of the Pest side and of the Buda hills, with romantic look out terraces to enjoy the view from.
The three main sights on the hill are our first three picks, the Matthias Church, Fishermen's Bastion and Royal Palace comprising the set of landmarks without which the Castle Hill would lose its character.

Beneath the district are a series of caves, and the Buda Castle Labyrinth in fifth place is one that has been opened to the public.

In sixth and seventh place are two great places to enjoy Hungarian wine: the King's Wine Cellar and Museum, a series of wine cellars from the 14ht century only recently opened up, and the House of Hungarian Wines.

The Marzipan Museum in eighth place located in the Hotel Hilton is the place to feast not just your eyes but also your stomach on some delicious marzipan figures!

There are several smaller museums in the area, of which the Museum of Military History (our ninth pick) is a great example.

Last but not least the Funicular, an antique carriage making a romantic ride up to the Castle District.
