Things to do in Budapest

Day trips: Just a few of the day trips we suggest from Budapest: the lovely Danube Bend where the artist town of Szentendre and the medieval fortress of Visegrad entice curious travelers. East of Budapest lies the Great Hungarian Plain, a vast grassland famous for its horses and legendary puszta outlaws.

Sightseeing: In Budapest itself, you’ll want to explore the ancient castle, take in the exotic sights, sounds, and smells of the Central Market, admire the collections of Budapest’s many museums, and take in a concert or opera in one of the city’s renowned musical venues. Of course, the ancient churches and the Central Synagogue shed light on the diverse spiritual legacy of Hungary. The delightful Hungarian cuisine can be sampled in hundreds of restaurants and cafés. Don’t neglect a Danube cruise for a relaxing way to take in the city’s sights by river.

Off-the-beaten-track treasures that can’t be beat: When you need to get off the beaten track, try a relaxing walk on the wooded Margaret Island, a refreshing day at one of the city’s historic spas, a walk through one of the fascinating caves in the Buda Hills, or even a wine tasting in the nearby village of Etyek.


Here's what our customers have to say

Roberta Melville

Budapest turned out to be a delightfully lively city with interesting places to walk and discover. It was comfortably safe to walk at night as single women, as the streets seemed filled with young college-age people. Our apartment could not have been in a more convenient location, and our staff person was a delightful young woman who was extremely diligent about keeping in touch with us to be sure that we were managing ok. She even called one evening to give us step-by-step directions to reach a movie theater on the edge of the city and gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation for dinner on the Pest side of town.

John McIntosh

The eventual support and genuine caring we received from Henriette and her family. We were very reassured by the availability of the cell phone which we needed at least twice to panic call Henri.ette. We were delighted to be invited for a meal at Henriette's family's home. It gave us a chance to see life outside of the big city and to connect with a family which we feel privileged to have enjoyed! About the city itself: Budapest was a surprise and a delight-we got in touch with Toni's heritage a bit!

Elgenia Ross

We felt that we were really experiencing Budapest not as a tourist but as someone who was visiting friends.

Gerald and Helen Haines

Budapest exceeded our expectation. A beautiful site on the river, magnificent old buildings, modern shopping area, comfortable apartments.The city was very vibrant.

Frank and Alison Davis

While Alison was experiencing the Baths, I walked around much of the park. I followed my ear towards sounds of recorders playing; I discovered a popular area with people standing watching the musicians and then a group of street dancers. In this area was a replica of a provincial church and the Department of Agriculture, built like a medieval castle. I shot some photos and returned to meet Alison at the Baths... We walked around the park some more. We saw the Castle Vajdahunyad another ornate building and the little Catholic chapel Jak Chapel which has a beautiful reconstructed Romanesque portal. A group of children were performing Renaissance dances on the steps of the castle. After dinner we walked along the Vaci utca and heard organ music coming from St Michael's church, so we stepped inside and found ourselves listening to Bach and Liszt! An unexpected free concert!
