Our hotel was Budavar B&B located in Buda area, so this square was the first thing we found while we headed to the hotel from the airport. This is a good point where you start your Budapest trip. You can climb up to the hill by the funicular railway or on foot, or you can to the Pest area across... More

We walked around the square for a few minutes and enjoyed the views across to Pest. The funicular can be taken right there and you can also just sit on the wall and people watch. Great place for a stroll.

Clark Adam Ter is the square at the base of the funicular. You can reach it easily by walking over the Chain Bridge and you will be there. From here most people will take the funicular up to Castle Hill District. The tunnel, vehicular, that will bring you to The top of Buda Castle is here also.

The square that gives access to the Buda Castle, where you can take the funicular to go up the hill. There are also some places to eat (pretty costly, of course) and a fountain with drinkable water, very useful during summer time.

Very important for traffic on Buda side of Budapest, since a large tunnel which goes under the Castle hill is connected with the Chain bridge via this square and its roundabout. If you're going to the Buda castle via funicular, you'll surely come across this square.

I was expecting more when I read 'square', as it was really just a roundabout with pretty flowers, but it is literally just opposite the chain bridge as you get off, so you'll see it whether you want to or not!

It is not really a square, more like a roundabout.... Anyway, this is a good starting point to go up to the Castle of Buda! :-) You can take nice photos of the Danube River and the city!

Although not really a square it is a nice area if you want to have a look at the amazing tunnel or take the vintage funicular ride up to the castle and hills. There is a nice area here with a lovely cafe outside that on any visit here is always really busy. The square takes its name from the... More

Having mis-read a sign, we were most disappointed that this wasn't a square in the honour of Stoke City's Scottish international footballer Charlie Adam, formerly of Liverpool and Blackpool. The square is essentially a transport interchange and therefore while it has some lovely things around it, (Restaurants, Chain Bridge, etc) it's hard to rate it as any more than average... More

Adam Clark was the Scottish builder who was commissioned to build the Chain Bridge and the road tunnel under Castle Hill. Off the square is the funicular railway terminus and the zero kilometre stone from where all measurements in Hungary are made. The roundabout is truly a terrifying experience not to be taken lightly and only by local taxi drivers... More

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
