Inaugurated in 1870, the Budapest Funicular was the second funicular to be built in Europe.
During World War II, the cable railway was partially destroyed. Years later, it was rebuilt exactly as it had been and was reopened in 1986.
In our opinion, the best way to get to the top of Castle Hill is by taking the Funicular and then walking back down.
Clark Ádám Square not only houses the Funicular, but also the city’s Kilometre 0. It is used to measure the distances in Budapest and Hungary.
