Getting out and exploring on two feet is a great way to see everything a city has to offer, as well as discovering places you might never have noticed before! From sightseeing tours and city center parks, to rugged natural landscapes. The Culture Trip takes you on a tour of Budapest’s best walking trails.
Located just outside Budapest, head to the town of Budaors for a family friendly trip with plenty of marked hiking trails to enjoy. Easily reachable by public transport, we’d recommend heading to Budaors city hall to start your walk. From here, head up to Farkas-hegy for beautiful views and to see the monument of gliders on top of the hill. You can then either head back down into town, or continue your journey by following the red cross trail to Rupp-hegy, from where a number of buses will take you back into the town center.
As well as being a great place for a run in Budapest, the centrally located Margaret Island is also a good option for a walk in the city, especially for those with young children thanks to its flat terrain and ease of access. Take a picnic and walk around the island. For a longer route, cross over Arpad Hid onto Obudai Sziget, an island with a more rugged feel, known for hosting the Sziget Festival during summer.
