Budatower, Budapest

3.8
The oldest building in Kapisztrán square is the Mary Magdalene Tower built in late Gothic style, also the only medieval monument maintained in its original form.

After being closed to the public for decades, Mary Magdalene Tower opened its doors to visitors again in the summer of 2017.

The Lookout tower on the higher level offers an extraordinary panorama with views to the most important buildings of Budapest and the nearby Buda hilltops. The 15th century building will soon be home to a cultural and tourism centre providing insight into both the Buda Castle and the church, as well as the Midday bell chimes and how it is connected to Hungarian history. In the Ruins garden, visitors can enjoy an hourly carillon.

Open every day from 10am until sunset. Arrange your visit to Budatower and discover more family-friendly attractions in Budapest using our Budapest road trip planning website .
