Flights to Budapest

Budapest is, without a doubt, one of the coolest destinations in Europe. A lot of people compare it to Prague – another city that’s got post-Communism appeal, rapidly gentrifying neighbourhoods, trendy lounges housed in derelict buildings, and boutiques that feature cutting edge fashion and art. As soon as your flight to Budapest touches down, you'll know you've arrived in a city that's constantly evolving from historic destination to hip hangout for the young and stylish.

For anyone with even a passing interest in architecture, the Hungarian capital is a delight, full of beautiful buildings ranging in styles from Baroque to Art Nouveau to neoclassical to super modern. Strolling the banks of the Danube River, with Castle Hill in the distance, you can get a fantastic sense of the history that Budapest has experienced. Its golden age was at the turn of the 20th century, when many of the city’s most gorgeous edifices were constructed.

It’s not all history, though. New neighbourhoods that should be on your ‘to visit’ list include Józsefváros, the Eighth District, which has been regentrified into a cultural focal point for the city, packed with galleries and restaurants.

Eating in Budapest is an eye-opening yet leisurely experience. Restaurants run the gamut from self-service cafeterias to high-end splurges, and Hungarian food is varied and rich. The city has received a growing number of Michelin stars, and new restaurants are opening all the time. Desserts, particularly the classic Hungarian treats, are world-class, and the locals spend plenty of time in cafes, appreciating them with gusto.

The best hotels in Budapest are a varied lot: some small, some big, some pricey, some cheap. Location is important – try to find somewhere close to public transportation if you’re opting to stay outside the city centre. A couple of the newest hotels have an art focus, with their own galleries and eye-catching designs. Older places have a more demure look but can be surprisingly luxurious. And hostels, which are plentiful, are generally of a high standard.

In essence, to experience Budapest's emergence as a top world destination is truly a fascinating journey. Come to Budapest and immerse yourself in the up-and-coming.

What to do in Budapest

Memento Park

A very unique attraction in Budapest, Memento Park is home to around 40 massive discarded statues of Communist leaders such as Stalin, Lenin and Marx, all of which were pulled down and trashed after the fall of Communism. It’s a bizarre yet moving sight, and well worth the slight trek out of the city centre.

Trek to the top of Castle Hill

You can see Castle Hill from anywhere in Budapest, but it’s worth making the trek to the top for the views of the city and river. The plateau is a Unesco World Heritage Site and hosts the city’s most significant medieval monuments as well as museums, cafes and charming little streets. Check out the Budapest History Museum.

Relax in the Széchenyi Medical Baths

Medicinal baths are one of Budapest’s best traditions. Located in City Park, the Széchenyi Medicinal Baths, also known as the Széchenyi Thermal Baths, is one of the biggest at 6,500 square metres. The neo-Baroque complex, with hot and cold baths both inside and out, is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon in true Hungarian style.

Where to eat in Budapest

Borkonyha (Contemporary Hungarian)

This Michelin-starred restaurant is a draw for anyone who wants to explore a diverse and often forgotten element of Hungarian dining. Hearty traditional dishes like purple cabbage soup with steamed dumplings or goulash with beef tenderloin are reformatted into delicious and of-the-moment creations.

+36 1 266 0835

Costes (Modern international)

The Michelin-starred Costes is surprisingly casual – there’s no need for a suit and tie, just a voracious appetite to tuck into the set menus (four, five, six and seven courses). Chef Miguel Rocha Vieira is a master of technique, and sends out adventurous dishes – like pigeon two ways, with beetroot and coffee.

Café Gerbeaud (Cafe)

A bright and cheerful Vienna-style cafe, Gerbeaud has been around since 1858, dishing up delectable confectionary to the locals. Now they offer a hearty menu of homey food as well, serving Hungarian dishes such as goulash and cabbage stew as well as an incredible range of sweet treats.

Places to stay in Budapest

Art’otel budapest

If you’re staying at the art’otel, try to get either a room with a view of the Danube or an ‘art room’, decorated with the work of contemporary artist Donald Sultan. You can also take art tours of the hotel, whose public spaces are packed with sculpture and paintings.

Lánchíd 19

This city centre hotel has just 48 rooms, all with trendy design touches like bedside lamps shaped like giant light bulbs. You'll find it on the banks of the Danube River and adjacent to the Chain Bridge. It's easy to spot: the hotel’s facade, covered with louvered windows and LED lights, changes colour after dark.
