Exciting things to do in Budapest

Discover what the Hungarian capital has to offer, day or night in every season. There are always plenty of things to do in Budapest. From sightseeing and spas to statues and shopping, start exploring this eclectic city.

Stroll up Castle Hill, gaze in wonder at the glorious Buda Castle and Matthias Church, before heading back down the hill to the impressive Gellert Spa. Go for a ride on the cog-wheel railway funicular, or get the chairlift up to the Children’s Railway. Kids will love it. Learn about Hungary’s rich history at Heroes’ Square. Then, visit the defunct statues of socialist leaders in Memento Park, an eerie graveyard for unwanted sculptures. Shop ‘til you drop on the grandiose Andrassy Avenue before stopping for coffee and beautiful cakes in the famous Viennese-style cafés. Then head out in the evening for some world-class cuisine, followed by drinks in an upbeat ruin bar.

Shopping.

Shopping

Budapest’s shopping is as diverse as its population. Big, bustling markets sit alongside tiny craft shops selling traditional Magyar clothing and even weaponry. Those not looking for a bow and arrow should head over to the fashion boutiques of Váci Utca, a long pedestrianised street full of chic shoppers. Don’t miss the Great Market Hall to embrace Budapest’s vibrant market scene, plus you could pick up some fresh paprika or Kolbász (sausage).

Museums/sightseeing

The heart of medieval Budapest, Castle Hill, is full of atmospheric plazas, tiny cobbled streets and elegant architecture. Here you will find the Royal Palaces and the Hungarian National Gallery. See the Gellért Baths, a traditional bath complex where the natural springs soothe and relax. Spend a day in the City Park, where you can ice skate in winter. Or enjoy a picnic at Margaret Island, sat in the middle of the Danube.

Essen.

Essen

Budapest, and Hungary, is well-known for its delicious cuisine. Highly spiced with paprika and garlic, food is mouth-wateringly good. Lángos is deep-fried dough with cream, cheese and garlic – perfect for dipping into goulash. Kosher food in Budapest has made a huge comeback, with many places serving salted beef and latkes. You can even eat aboard a river boat, and gaze at the wonderful architecture as you float down the Danube.

Nachtleben.

Nachtleben

Rooftop bars are all the rage in Budapest, with great views over the city it’s easy to see why – Corvintető is a cool place to start. A must-see is the Szimpla Kert ruin bar, a vast space with a theatre, grill, bakery and a cycle hire. For those looking for a cheap but fun night out, then grab a bottle of wine and join the hundreds of locals who meet up on Elizabeth Square.

Two Children.

For families

Budapest is great for kids, with many parks, cycle paths and fun rickety old tram rides. Hire bikes and make your way to Margaret Island where there is a zoo, lots of open space and a musical fountain. Make sure to go on the Children’s Railway and the chairlift – just outside the city in the suburbs. Memento Park provides an important awareness into Hungary’s communist past. Or go to Budapest Zoo and Botanical Gardens to see the splendid elephant house.
