Budapest is definitely worth more than a weekend's visit, but if you only have 2 days to visit the metropolis on the Danube we can give you some tips so you will miss none of the highlights. The town is ideally suited to plan a perfect days outing.

 

We suggest spending one day in Buda, one day in Pest The hilly Buda offers perfect views over the city.


Buda-side: On the Buda-side the fortress area provides a perfect venue for a walking tour - discover the Matthiaskirche (also called the church of Our Lady and the coronation church for many Kings) the beautiful builing of the Fischerbastei and the stroll to the Royal Palace. Directly afterwards you should visit the 1,2 km labyrinth. You will find numerous restaurants and bars at the fortress area inviting you to stop and eat. After the visiting the fortress mountain a trip up to Gellert mountain to the fortress and the statue of liberty presents itself for an evening excursion. From the top you have the best view over the UNESCO heritage Danube panorama with festively illuminated parliament, many bridges and other sites.

 

Pest-side: Visit the Budapest parliament, it is absolutely necessary to book a visit. After that we recommend visiting the largest church in Budapest, the St Stephen's Basilica where you can find St Stephen's relics. If you have enough time you have the possibility to climb the cupola offering a beautiful view of the city centre. If you need refreshment after that and want to taste sweet delicacies from Budapest we recommend visiting the nearby Café Gerbeaud for a piece od Dobos Torte. This is a must and belongs to Budapest the same as Foie Gras and various kinds of paprika.

 

Part of every Budapest trip should be a stroll along the Andrassy ut, the splendid boulevard of the metropolis which ends on the Heldenplatz, the Heroes Square, with a colonnade of the 13 Hungarian emperors and historicly important people. Directly behind the Heroes Square you will find the city park with the dreamy Vajdahunyad Palace.

 

If you would like to bring home some souvenirs or delicacies from spicy Hungary a visit to the large market hall is a must. You can find a wide choice of Hungarian Salami, duck liver pate and different kinds of paprika (bell peppers). There is an article below about the famous Hungarian cuisine.
