You can easily get to the forest train stop by taking the number 1 tram from the city centre and then off you go onto an adventure into the depths of the forest and top of the hills on the forest train.

We took the train to go to Lillafured, however there are a number of other stops as well after Lillafured and you can just buy a return ticket or one way ticket and go all the way to the last stop.

The train ride took about 20-30 minutes and it takes you through the most breathtaking parts of the forest. We got on the train as the ticket office was closed and we have been reassured that we can buy our tickets on the train. This caused no problems, we got our tickets just before we got to Lillafured.

The train has a number of open carriages which was definitely worth trying out during the summer, however it has also got closed carriages.

I really enjoyed the travel through the tunnels, complete darkness and then the sun rays shine in and you can see the beauty of the forest again.

It's a must do and tickets only cost 700 Fts.

Retro train. First section goes in the city between garden- and blockhouses, then in the beautiful forest of Bükk hill. Bridge, tunnel, cranny, big trees til you get to Lillafüred. If you are sensitive to smells it isn't for you, the train's smoke is smelly, you can't enjoy the forest's fresh air.

The trains starting point is around 4 km from city centre or Centrum stop. One can reach by Tram 1. Stop name is Laev. Timing of train is starting from 9:30. Train goes till Gardana. Lilafured is the main attraction point in Miskolc. Train ticket can be purchased at the station or one can buy directly in train. 45 min ride to Lilafured.

Issue 1: the staff do not speak English, nor are any of the signs in English - bring a Hungarian-speaking friend of a phrase book, otherwise you may end up with the wrong kind of ticket.

Issue 2: as the train goes through the forest it can be cold, especially considering the fact that it's an open carriage. Bring a jacket!

Otherwise the trip is scenic, pleasant and provides an experience different to that of sitting on the car or in a bus. It does take a good hour to go from one end to the other, but you get a lot of chances to take photos that way! The hotel and the grounds of Lillafured are pretty, too, worth an hour or two of your time.

My kids love the forest railway and we usually travel twice a year. One time in summer and also for the winter season. The view is terrific and the open cars offer a nice atmosphere.

Fresh air and beautiful surroundings to walk. The old tourist train trip can be done in the upper reaches of the lake. There's trout farm and restaurant.

Easy to get on at Miskolc or Lillaured, each hop-on costs 1000HUF, the ride from Lllafured to Garanda (the last stop) took about half an hour and took us to a restaurant and "ghost-town-like" place where we had nothing to do or see, Just to shoo the mosquetos and get back on the train to where we parked the car.
The short nice ride may be good for unpatient kids. but nothing to get excited about.
If you really want a good scenic ride get on the Oravita-Anina train in Romania where the ride is an amazing ride 2 hours each direction with multiple bridges and tunels

This is a narrow gauge railway originally designed to carry freight (mainly wood) but today is a visitor attraction. You can reach the beginning of the line by taking Tram Number 1 to Dorottya Street. The train starts close to the tram stop and the first part of the route is through the town. It then goes into a deeply wooded area as it climbs the mountainside. The train shakes and rattles about making it difficult to take photos. If you are in the rear carriage you'll get the best shots of the engine when it rounds the sharp bends. Train stop in Lillafured, a proper little station where you can buy tickets, is close to the Hotel Palota. If you want to leave here there is an interesting area with a picturesque waterfall, terraced gardens (a wonderful piece of architecture in beautiful natural surroundings), and there are caves to explore. The train then continues from Lillafured to the Garadna Lake which is its final destination. It is a journey of around 15 km.
