Don't fancy the walk to the Castle then let the fenicular take the strain

Fenicular to the Royal PalaceLeaving, or maybe even launching, from right in front of the Chain Bridge (Lanchid) and the 0km stone where all roads in Hungary are measured from, the fenicular is a giant 3 tiered almost vertical railway that takes the pain out of the climb to the palace. The palace, standing on the grounds of the original 13th century one and rebuilt countless times since then, with no royalty left to accommodate, now houses amongst other things the National Gallery and several state museums. If you tire of the culture the gardens in front of the palace afford a relaxing excuse to enjoy yet another view of the City.
