Thanks to its height of 526 metres, the top of János Hill (János-hegy) is the highest point of Budapest. It is a popular destination among hikers, mountain bikers, runners, nordic walkers and families. On top of János Hill stands the Erzsébet Lookout Tower, built in 1910, whence you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama of the city. In clear weather you can see as far as 80 kilometres, and locals claim that in certain atmospheric conditions even the peaks of the High-Tatra are visible in the distance. Take bus 291 from the Nyugati Railway Station, and when reaching the last stop, change for the Chairlift, which will take you up the hill, to the vicinity of the Lookout Tower.
