      Hello Vera, there is no need book a ticket in Fisherman’s Bastion. You can freely walk on the rampart and balconies, while the upper turrets are coin operated with a turnstile gate. No online tickets are sold for Fishermans Bastion, as there is no need for it. Have a nice Budapest visit in May. We are having a wonderful spring weather this year!

      Dear Eva, for a group of 11 tourists there is unfortunately no group discount on the Fisherman’s Bastion, but you can buy student tickets if you wish to climb to the top of the towers (basically 1 more floor higher than the free balconies and terraces).

    Hi there,

    I recently visited Fisherman’s Bastion during my visit to Budapest. On the evening of 13/12/2014 myself and friends went for drinks in the Bar area inside the Bastion, there was live music which I absolutely loved. I was wondering if there was any way of finding out who the musicians were so I could buy some of there stuff!

    thanks,

    William

      Hello Maria, unfortunately, there is no elevator for older people, but you can also approach the Fisherman’s Bastion from near the Matthias Church, taking a bus (Castle minibus, part of the public transport), or taking a taxi. This way, you do not need to climb stairs, unless you wish to go up to the top of the Bastion to have a view of Budapest from the upper turrets and terraces. That said, the views are excellent from the lower levels, so it is highly recommended to visit. The surface of the roads and squares in the Buda Castle area are mostly covered in cobble stones, so make sure to have a pair of comfy shoes.

      Hello Violeta, many parts of the Fisherman’s Bastion can be visited with a wheelchair. The lower terraces offer great views, the surface is not smooth though, so expect cobble stones in the Buda Castle area in Budapest. The upper towers are not accessible with wheel chair unfortunately.

    Hello,

    Can we buy tickets online to avoid queueing? And is there any guided tour through the site? Are we able to re-entre the Bastion after we leave because we would like to enjoy a different view of it in different time of the day.

      Dear Saxon, at this moment there is no booking tickets online, but we can recommend a guided tour in the Buda Castle area, which includes visiting many parts of the Fisherman’s Bastion, as well as a tour inside the Matthias Church, and guided walking tour in the Buda Castle area (2.5 hours in duration.)

      If you buy an entry to visit the upper turrets of the lookout fortification, it enables you for a one time visit.

      Hello Joseph, yes the Fisherman’s Bastion is a good place to pop the question, it has beautiful views, just like the Citadel or the Danube itself with its many river cruises and floating restaurants in Budapest. There is a restaurant in the Bastion itself you may wish to contact for ideas / help.

      Dear Maria,
      The easiest way to reach the Fisherman’s Bastion from the city center by public transportation is if you travel by metro M3 until Szell Kalman Sq. and from there, you can either walk up the Buda Castle Hill or take bus no. 16 to get up there.

    Hello! We would like to set up a photo shoot after our wedding on 17 December 2016. Is it possible if we buy the tickets, or do we need a permission from you or the municipality of the district? Only the 2 of us (maybe the best man and the bride’s maid) and the photographer will be there. Thankfully: Alexandra

    Buenos días.
    Quería saber si para subir a las torres del Bastión de los pescadores, se puede subir con la tarjeta Budapest Car o hay que pagar para pasar por los tornos y subir, ¿cual es su precio?
    Gracias.

      Buenos días Maria,
      Los balcones inferiores son gratuitos, pero si desea entrar en la zona superior, hay una cuota de HUF 800 por persona. Con una Budapest Card válida, puede obtener un 10% de descuento en este precio.

    Hello! I’m going to Budapest from June to July, this year, and I’d like to know which one of those 2 months is less crowded and if there’s any difference in the value of the ticket to the Top View.
    Thanks!

      Hello Sofia,
      usually all the summer months are quite busy so there’s no way of telling which one would be the best to visit. The price of the ticket is the same throughout the year.
