The cogwheel tram, which is officially tram 61?, leaves from Varosmajor, accessible by BKV villamos symbol.svg: 59 or 61 from Szell Kalman Square. It climbs through the wooded Buda Hills and at the top. - Some history Since 1868 a horse tramway ran on schedule from the Lánchíd to Zugliget set in operation by the Budai Közúti Vaspálya Társaság (~ Public Railway Society of Buda). Nikolaus Riggenbach (the designer of the first European cog-wheel train line of Vitznau-Rig opened in 1871) with a colleague applied for the construction of the cog-wheel train line leading to Svábhegy. The first introductory vehicle ran from 4 p.m. on June 24, 1874, and regular traffic began on the following day. The whole line was built according to Riggenbach's cog-wheel system. The normal-gauge single track railway was 2883m long all the way uphill with a difference in height of 264 m. The terminal point was built at the present Városmajor. - Extended in 1890, when traffic started to the Széchenyi Mountain increasing the length of the line to 3700m. From July 2, 1929, the new electrically powered vehicles ran every 15 minutes. 1973 saw a full reconstruction, during which the whole track was renewed using the Strub cog-wheel system, and new vehicles introduced.

Except the train driver, all of the posts are operated by children, beside adult supervision. - History: In 1947, the Hungarian State Railways (MÁV) socitey decided that a railway operated by children would be built. The first section, from Széchényi Hill to Előre station (now Virágvölgy) was inaugurated on July 31, 1948. The second section, to Ságvári-liget (now Szépjuhászné), was completed one year later, and the last section, to Hűvösvölgy, was opened in late August 1950. OW/RW HUF700/1400, student half price.

Hotel Gellért, built in Art Nouveau style

Worth seeing even if you don't intend to swim (in summer, the outdoor part is open to visitors; entrance to indoor part is paid). See the Baths section in Budapest for details. - About the hotel: Hotel Gellért is a famous, first class four star hotel in Budapest, Hungary. The hotel was erected on the right bank of the river Danube between 1916 and 1918 in the (Secession) Art Nouveau style with some biomorphic elements, at the foot of Gellért Hill, next to Szabadság Bridge. The four star Danubius Hotel Gellért, onetime Saint Gellért Hotel and Spa, was renovated in 1962 and in 1973. The spa, swimming pool and plaza built to the hotel is one of the most beautiful spas in Budapest. Hotel Gellért got the name „the first lady of Hungarian tourism”. Gellért is one of the most famous historical hotels in Europe, which is well-known among businessmen and tourists as well. - Inside of the hotel is built in Art Nouveau style with high glass cupola and wrought iron decoration. The characteristic, oriental cone-shaped towers of the hotel and eventful frontage attract the look from long distances. Inside the hotel less, but more in the spa the original Art Nouveau furnishing stayed with artistic mosaics, colourful windows and statues. The ornament of the stairs starting from the reception in the hotel is the glass window, made on the basis of layouts of Bozó Stanisits, representing the Chase of the Miraculous Deer from the famous old Hungarian legend. At the beginning of the 20th century the apartments of the nobles were characteristically magnificent, while the other rooms were simply furnished with carefully designed pieces. The stylish furnishing of the rooms does credit to the work carried out by artists under the direction of Ferenc Szabja. The domed hall opened to a formal courtyard which was used as a conservatory with its sliding glass roof. The semi-circular lawned courtyard was surrounded by an alcove for the orchestra and a colonnade of the pump-room. The Indian maharajahs with their numerous attendants visiting Europe frequently put up at the luxuriously comfortable Hotel Gellért. During and after World War II the richly coloured coffered ceiling of the galleried foyer and the domed hall reminiscent of the great halls of the Roman thermal baths suffered almost irreparable damage. At the end of the 50’s the reconstruction of the hotel was started. Nowadays the Gellért Hotel is characterized by cosily furnished rooms in which the materials and colours of the textiles, furniture and coverings combine to radiate a sense of calm.
