All reviews agricultural museum heroes square city park ice rink small lake hungarian architecture nice park big park szechenyi baths walk around worth a visit nice walk beautiful architecture take pictures anonymous moat statue
We were in the area because of visiting the nearby baths so we decided to wander around. If you walk around the back there is a bust of Bela Legosi which was hidden there by a German artist called Hartmut Zech
One of my favorite places that visited in HUngary. may great spots and angles for photo opportunities. I love the design which for me has either a Harry Potter or Eastern European feel. Inside the castle grounds there are several interesting statues. you need to...More
Unlike many castles you see, this one still has its moat around it. It was drained during our visit in the winter, but it was still very nice to walk the grounds near the castle, which is in City Park not far from Heroes' Square....More
We visited City Park or Peoples Park which the splendour of Vajdahunyad Castle is found, in the early evening.
The short metro 1 trip from Octagon to Szechenyi was delightful, and to travel this world heritage line, its total rolling stock and infrastructure maintained in...More
A strange one really, a Gothic style fairytale castle, originally built only 100 years ago out of cardboard and plaster for an exhibition and was popular so people wanted a real one built. So a structure constructed as a real version of a cardboard castle...More
We did not go in so cant comment. The castle and grounds are attractive. The park looks like a great place to visit in the summer. There was an ice skating rink infront of it in December and school kids were coming from schools to...More
glad we paid a visit there despite being conned for the metro ride.
Really pretty castle grounds with a small Xmas Market around it with a ice rink nearby and a 20min walk back to fashion street.
We visited here in December and it was a lovely place. There was an ice skating rink in front of the castle and a Christmas market in the grounds plus the courtyard. There wasn't much to see of the castle - you could walk on...More

You can book the tower tours as you enter the museum (although I would not bother with the gate tower as there is really not much to see). We just went and paid for what we wanted on the day and there was no problem with doing that as it was not that busy. The only thing I found you really need to book ahead for in Budapest because of limited availability was the tour of the parliament building and you cannot enter the parliament if you are not on a tour
I am planning to visit Budapest in February 2015 (between 9th to 13th) with my girlfriend. I believe, Budapest will be very cold in February. But, I also believe that there will be lesser crowd during winter and this would help us to visit places at our own pace. Below is the schedule (draft) that we have put up and we would surely need the help of fellow-members to provide their valuable inputs on (1) schedule, whether its manageable or too hectic; (2) hotel that will be central to visit...More

I think your plan is not hectic, it's reasonable. In my opinion you can plan something more for day 2, you planned too much time for the Castle area, it can be done in less time (you planned 7-10 hours, I think 5-6 hours would be enough for that). After that you can stroll on the Dunakorzo and Vaci Street (Vaci utca) for example. Do you mean 5000-8000 HUF for one person, or for a room (two persons)? For this price you can get mainly hostels in the city center (but they can be OK). You...More

Reasonable itinerary for a day and half visit (7 Replies)
Hi all, I am going to be in in Budapest for a few days around middle of next month (January). I will probably have about a day and half to visit a few places in the city. Based on earlier threads/reviews these are some of the places that I found of interest. I would appreciate if you could suggest what would be good itinerary to see at least some of the following: 1. Castle Hill (Varhegy) 2. Buda Castle 3. Matthias Church (Matyas Templom) 4. Fisherman's Bastion (Halaszbastya) ...More

I think all of them you can visit, it can be done, if you have a full day and a half. From Deak Ferenc ter you can go to the Castle Hill with bus #16, you can visit the Castle, Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion, then you can walk down to Chain Bridge, or you can take bus #16 again, walk through the bridge, then a short walk to the shoes, then the Parliament, the monument of Imre Nagy and the Basilica, they are close to each other, easily walkable, even in January (if there is no big...More

You don't say what days of the week you plan to do this. The central market is closed on Sunday, and you won't be able to tour the churches during Sunday masses, generally until a little after one pm. Nearly all the museums with the exception of the kiddie rail lines are closed on Monday. When you go to the Bazilika make certain you take some small change for viewing of the relic, the poor box and small bills for trinkets at the gift booth. Also, do not miss the elevator that takes you to the...More
