A Day Hopping on and off in Budapest

A Day Hopping on and off in Budapest 4

While tracing the roots in Hungary we had some time to explore the capital city. With the help of City Sightseeing we spent 2 days hopping on and off in Budapest. From bridges to goulash, we covered it all.

Here’s how it looks.

Buda + Pest

The city of Budapest is divided in two by the Danube River with Buda on the east bank and Pest on the west. The great part of hopping on and off in Budapest with City Sightseeing is the area you can cover. Riding the complete route takes you past all the highlights of both the Buda and Pest. With the included audio guide, this is a great way to hear about the city and hopping off at what interests you. For me that was a visit to the House of Terror and the parliament building on the Pest side and taking the funicular up to the castle, and checking out the Hospital in the Rock on the Buda side.

Buda Side

Don’t miss – The views from on top of Buda Castle, both sides!

Pest Side

Don’t miss – A stop at the New York Cafe, seeing the city’s famous bridges, and the Shoes on the Danube memorial.

Extra Extras

Along with commentary and a free ride around Budapest, your ticket includes a few perks. Enjoy free goulash, a shot, and a beer at various partner stops along the way.

The extras with hopping on and off to Budapest continue into the evening. Enjoy an included river cruise and experience the lights and bridges of Budapest from a whole new perspective.

Hopping on and off in Budapest with City Sightseeing is a great way to cover the city in little time. Once the full route is done you can pick and choose where you want to spend your time at. Or, if you’re like me, where you can enjoy the best food.

Although I was provided a complimentary day hopping on and off in Budapest thanks to City Sightseeing,
the experience, opinions, and free goulash was my own.
