Great way to see the city for next to nothing! Cheap, easy, lots of stops the tram follows the Danube and there are some really pretty views.

“The best sightseing in Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

No doubt this is the most beautiful line in town once you have from inside a panoramic view of some spots from Buda side, like the Castle, the Gellért hill and the Citadel Monument and the Gellért Hotel. Also you can see the most beautiful bridges, Chain, Liberty and Elizabeth and on Pest side, the tram crosses by the Parliament, the Gresham Palace, Vigadó Square, the big Central Market and Corvinus University heading to the Palace of Arts. Per se, this itinerary is a touristic tour through the main attractions of Budapest.

“Cheapest and best sightseeing trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Tram Number 2 is one of the oldest yellow trams in Budapest. It runs from near Margit Island Bridge to Rakoczi Bridge in the south. The tram 2 is safe, pass through places that are great for tourists and the best way to get around the city. It is especially good because you see a lot of nice attractions for the cost of a tram ride, but if you are concerned about security avoid it after 9/10 PM. It runs along the river Danube and gives a spectacular view of the river margins and of many of Budapest's attractions, including the Parliament. Don't forget to buy a ticket because there are many ticket controllers. It's a nice ride. Try it.
