Discover the hidden gems of Budapest on this unique walking tour and learn more about the history of this iconic city!
Walking is by far the best way to explore Budapest, and the only way to truly discover the details hidden amongst the city’s streets. This tour visits a mix of many of the city’s major sights, alongside lesser known monuments, which we believe should not be missed.
We’ll begin in the Pest Palace district with a glass of sparkling wine, as we get our bearings. In this neighbourhood we’ll see some stunning buildings including the Hungarian National Radio Building and the National Museum.
After this, we’ll briefly check out the neighbouring Jewish District, and see the Grand Synagogue, the Gozsdu udvar complex, and bustling Király utca. You will be able to get a feel of the impact that Judaism has had on the area in terms of its culture and cuisine.
We’ll see monuments including the heartbreaking Shoes on the Danube Holocaust memorial and the Soviet Monument. Following this, we’ll hop on continental Europe’s oldest metro line and stop for a coffee break at one of our favourite cafés in the city.
Budapest has layers of history and this tour will reveal them through the telling of the stories of the buildings and streets, as well as the important players in Hungarian history. You’ll get a good overview of the city, while covering lots of ground (approximately 3 miles) on this walk.
