Urban Workout

The main hunt for the city's runners if of course Margaret Island, but if you feel a bit stuck in a hamster wheel doing the same 6 kilometre routine over and over again, climbing Gellért hill can prove a pleasant distraction. It can also point out the existence of some unknown muscle groups which are apparently not used while you run, but are sorely required when you climb. One of the steeper routes meanders up the hillside from Elisabeth bridge- it is certainly tiring if walked at a quick pace but it rewards you with a splendid view that widens as you go up and you can always take a rest on one of the benches scattered along the alleys.
