My wife wants to take our 2 year old there but is having trouble finding information. She said that everyone talks about riding the train somewhere and then hiking up to a lookout. Is that something doable wth a stroller? They also mention taking the chairlift down. Is that something that can be done with a 2-year old? Can we carry the collapsed stroller?

The 2 year old may not get a lot out of it, and I advise you to have some way of securing the child to your lap: the chairlift is called the Libego, it is closed every other Monday for maintenance. Travelling down gives the best views, it takes about 20 minutes. From the bottom the 291 bus takes you to Nyugati station, smack in the centre of town. There are many ways of getting to the top of the Libego: bus 21/21A from Szell Kalman Ter to Normafa, then walk, takes about 20/30 minutes and...More
Hello, all: I'm trying to figure out how to get to these attractions from the Hungarian National Museum. I gather that I can take the metro from Astoria to the Varosmajor stop and that the Cogwheel Railway is nearby (although I'm a little fuzzy on exactly how nearby). The Children's Railway, it seems, is pretty directly connected to the Cogwheel Railway, right? And the chairlift is connected to the Children's Railway? Does the chairlift make a complete circuit, or am I obliged to catch the...More

Can you please cite your source for the information about the metro? Because the line goes nowhere near the Városmajor stop. The metro and the Városmajor stop are about 1km apart. You must take a tram to the stop from the metro station, if you dont feel like walking that much (the area of the metro station is being reconstructed, so its not that easy to navigate currently). The cogwheel stops about 250m from the railway, which you must walk. At the other end, there is the terminal of...More
I'm re-posting this question as a separate subject because it had developed out of answers I was given to a different question. No duplication intended. We are spending 5 and a half days in Budapest at the end of September / beginning October. I am very interested in the Children's Railway and for us, a good trip might be to go up on the train to the stop for the Erszebet lookout tower and then take the Zuligeti Libego chairlift back down the hill. I discovered the best route from our...More

Given your other comments, you might want to do it another way. It is quite a hike up the hill from the station on the CR to the Erzsebet Kilato. One alternative is to take the bus to the top of Normafa and then walk along to the Erszebet Kilato from there - good views of the city and, more importantly, level walking apart from the short stretch up to the Kilato. If you are desperate to go on the CR, another way would be to take the bus to the bottom of the libego, chairlift to the top, up...More
