Great way to see Danube from comfortable seats. Get to see most of the bridges and buildings. Plenty of great stops on way too.

A great way to see the Danube and buildings from both the Pest and Buda side. Take a ride after sunset to see all the illuminated buildings , it's an amazing view!

Not like other transport where the ticket scans to validate. This system is old and the ticket must be put into the machine and “punched” No mercy from ticket warden even though ticket had been purchased. Probably is a good cheap way to get about.

For me the top priority to be done when in Budapest - take a ride during the evening so u can appreciate the lighted buildings and the architecture of the city line across the Dunabe river

Tram 2 in Budapest is a great idea to explore the banks of the Danube River and see most of the city's iconic buildings. Being such an old tram gives it a special charm, we recommend taking it in the central market and reach the...More

Taking the tram no.2 is a great alternative instead of the usual and expensive tour busses. You have a great view of the river and the parliament building.

We made great use of this tram as it took us all along the side of the Danube and saved us a good half hour walk. Some stops don't have ticket machines at them which was a nuisance, but we prepared for this buy buying...More

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
