The Zugliget Chairlift is Hungary's first passenger cableway, which has taken hikers to János Hill and back since 1970. It is one of the capital's most popular landmarks and was called Libegő in a public naming contest. It transports passengers 1,040 metres in two-seater hanging chairs on a 2,600-metre-long cable. The elevation is 262 metres, and you’ll cover the distance in about 15 minutes.
Pro tip: you can find a playground and snack bars at the upper station. The Erzsébet Lookout on János Hill is a few minutes' walk. It’s not to be missed! You can come down on foot (but only in trainers!), but you can also jump on the narrow-gauge Children's Railway, as the János-hegy and Virágvölgy stations are just a short walk through the forest.
