At 639 metres, Prédikálószék is one of the highest peaks in the historic Visegrád hills, 42 kilometres upriver from Budapest. Towards the end of 2016, a 12-metre-tall lookout tower was erected at the top, providing a breathtaking panorama over the Danube Bend. The climb is a moderate hike that takes approximately 2.5-3 hours from the nearest village of Dömös, reached by bus from Budapest Újpest-Városkapu. On the way up, you'll see the so-called Vadalló Stones, said to have been formed several million years ago as a consequence of a volcanic eruption. Once at the top, a spacious clearing is scattered with benches perfectly suitable for a picnic, beside the three-storey lookout tower. There's free WiFi, too.
