Budapest is a green city. There are a ton of parks and green spaces spread throughout the city. Every knows the City Park (Városliget), and Margaret Island (Margit Sziget) – the green heart of Budapest. On the Buda side of the city, there are the Buda hills, including parks and possibilities to hike. Last month I walked/hiked up Jánoshegy with my sister, the highest point in Budapest. And it was worth it!
The top of Jánoshegy (János hill) is the highest point in Budapest with 527 meters. The hill is in the Normafa area. In this green area, you’ll find hills filled with parks, playgrounds, forest, restaurants, etc. There are several walking, running, and bicycling paths. We saw families with children in the playgrounds, couples on dates, but also friends enjoying the cooler weather. That can only mean Normafa is always a good idea.
