This was one of the best walking tours I have been on! Agnes was the girl that took us and she was great! Well structured and everything was well explained! I don't always do walking tours but Budapest and amazing history and it's a great chance to find out about it! Would definitely recommend!

I couldn't recommend this enough. Put on your sensible shoes and go for it! Our guide had a very clear voice and a very good sense of humour.

We started our trip with this walking tour by Hostel Culture, and it was the best thing we did. Takes around 2 1/2 hours, but gives you unparalled knowledge of Budapest's culture, history and sights. Our guide was Andris, and he was amazing! Very funny, knowledgeable and extremely happy to give any recommendations and advice. You get to see Budapest... More

During a recent visit to Budapest, we decided to try out the Free walking tour of Budapest. Its an excellent introduction to the city and the more popular location without going into too much detail. It provides an excellent overview so you can then follow-up on the tour by visiting the tourist spots in your own time. If you are... More

I went on the regular tour and the tour in the jewish district. Both were amazingly good! Great guides, I had "Barbara" and then a guy with a mustache, they knew a lot of things and I learned so much about Budapest. It was never boring which I usually think when going on tours, but they kept it interesting all... More

Seriously one of the best free walking tours I've had, and she was a main reason. She was funny, informative, and had a clear love for Budapest! We learned so much from her tour about the history of the city, and she also gave a lot of great tips on what to do/eat/drink. It was fantastic!!

I definitely recommend going on the walking tour. It takes around two and a half hours, but it's worth every minute! (I love learning about the cities I visit and I love walking). Our tour guide was Norbi, and he was terrific-informative and funny. It was great learning about the history of Budapest, the buildings, the food, the culture, the... More

My friend and I (2 females, 21) went on the morning walking tour with Norbi and had a lovely time. It lasts about 2.5/3 hours and is long enough that you see both sides of the river and most of the main sights but is short enough to be succinct and not dragged out. Norbi was a great guide with...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
