Here is a super quick guide of places to explore when in Budapest. For the longer version click HERE

Eat:



Hot chocolate from New York cafe, Langos from a street vendor and Risotto from Budapest Makery
There is no shortage of good eats across the city and for all budgets

Market BDPST – burgers, tacos, beer. Affordable and fresh fast food

L├íngos - a deep-fried dough with sour cream and cheese: totally delicious, rather plentiful and a bargain of €5

Budapest Makery* – Think of Hello Fresh Live and you’ve got yourself a couple of hours of fun and fab food!

SuWu coffee – Speciality coffees and a great selection of cakes and treats (also open late as an added bonus)

Cirkusz – If you love a good brunch and coffee spot this is the place. The price point is spot on


Hummus Bar – exactly what it says on the tin. Budget friendly, fresh and plentiful 

Sleep:

a small apartment with a double bed, sofa bed and small kitchenette
Our accommodation in central Budapest

Budapest Holidays Harmony Apartments are slap bang in the centre of the city, we had a 3 person apartment (1 double bed, a double sofa bed bathroom and small kitchen) for 3 nights and cost £150

See:




Buda Castle, the Fisherman’s Bastion and the stunning church of St. Matthias

Jewish Quarter – bars, food, street art galore.

Walking Tours – Free and different routes around the city every day of the week


Thermal Baths – Pack your costume and head to one of the many baths in the city. 

Repeat:

Budapest Info** – Travel cards available for 24,48,72 hours and let you use all public transport (with the exception of the airport shuttle). Also gains you access to a large number of attractions including the thermal baths.

Fisherman’s Bastion and the church of St. Matthias - Go back in the evening for a completely different experience (a lot quieter and the views are just stunning)

Budapest is a fabulous and vibrant city to explore as a family (or leave the kids at home and check out all the Ruin Bars!)


*We were gifted our meal at Budapest Makery with no requisite for a review.

**Budapest Info gifted us 72hours travel in the city in exchange for our honest review. Your Budapest card not only gets you travel but entrance into the thermal baths and many museums around the city and we wouldn’t hesitate to purchase one on our return visit.
