Fishermen's Bastion was built between 1895 and 1902 in Neo-Gothic style. It was designed and built by Frigyes Schulek.

In the Medieval age this part of the castle wall was guarded by the guild of fishermen, it was named after that. Obviously, the present Fishermen's Bastion has never had any role of defence. It is a spectacular looking-out terrace, with impressive stairs and walking paths.
