Full description
Experience one of the must-see sights in the Buda Castle District, the Magdalena (Buda Tower as it is also often called). The Church of Mary Magdalene itself was built in the 13th century, and after the church suffered severe damage during World War II, it was closed to the public for decades. The tower was reconstructed, and since 2017 has finally been able to welcome visitors again.

After some exercising and walking up the 170 stairs, you will arrive to the highest floor from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the city. You can observe the most unique sights such as the Hungarian Parliament, the St. Stephen's Basilica, or the Liberty statue from a different perspective.

On each floor of the tower, there is an information board about the past of the Castle Quarter and the tower. You can learn about the towers as well as the cities history while up or down. When you decide to go back down, you will be free to take some time to relax in the gardens.
