    Budapest is a very historical city with many influences from other countries and cultures. Let it be the Turks who invaded Hungary or remember the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy which brought a lot of tradition from the West to Budapest and the rest of Hungary. Not only the influences from other cultures makes Budapest interesting but also historical buildings, the Hungarian traditions and of course the food make Budapest one of the hotspots in Europe for holidays. Budapest is very often rewarded and listed in for example “Top 10 Travel Spots in Europe” or “Best capitals in the World” and so on. As there is so much to see and to do in Budapest you might not be able to stuff that all in the time you are visiting I think you will need guidance with attractions and sights to see, tours to take or tour guides to book for guided group or private tours.

    Recently added Attractions in Budapest

    Budapest is stuffed with great attractions and sights from the past. It will take way more than a weekend to explore all the spots and sights so bring time with you and get a good guide. I tell you that you need to come back next year because you haven’t seen even a fraction of the beautiful attractions Budapest has to offer.

    Budapest Eye

    The Budapest Eye is one of the newest attractions in the capital of Hungary. The giant Ferris Wheel located in the center of Budapest gives you the perfect view over the roofs of the Pest side with sneaks to Buda as well. For 2.400 HUF you get a beautiful view over Budapest including famous attractions such as the famous Andrássy út, the Basilica or the Budapest Castle District. The fee is valid for 3 rounds with the Budapest Eye including some stops on the top but overall the time seems to fly. During the Sziget Festival the Budapest Eye is located on the festival ground at Óbuda Sziget and you can take a ride there to have the best view on the festival. A great experience to view the festival from above which you usually only have on pictures. The Budapest Eye is 65 meters high so if you are afraid of heights most probably this is not the thing to do for you. The 41 gondolas with place for…

    The Mesemuzeum (pronounced Mesheh-museum)is an interactive, indoor adventure space for young children to run, play, and explore the basic elements of fairy tales.

    A very fascinating part of Hungarian history is located just beneath the Buda Castle Hill called the Hospital in the Rocks. This hospital was built during WWII, when Castle District was part of the Government Quarter. It was largely used when Budapest was under siege from July 1945 and then during the 1956 Revolution to treat wounded civilians and soldiers. Between 1958 and 1962 it was expanded to withstand potential chemical and nuclear attacks during the Cold War In 1941, a section of the 6 mile stretch of interconnected caves and tunnels, was converted into a military hospital staffed from the civilian Szent János hospital.

It was upgraded and extended to a nuclear bunker in the early ’60s because of the Cold War. Nowadays it is an exhibition displaying the life in the hospital with wax figures as well as the history…

To look for touching details To create good inside photos To make close-ups To control depth of field To edit photos in Instagram or Facebook Features of this walk: We will walk through the busy city centre Flat surface, no stairs or steep streets Suitable for every experience level, also beginners without photography knowledge Suitable for all types of camera.

    Budapest Reviews – Restaurants, Bars, Clubs

    Over the years living in Budapest I have visited more than 100 restaurants, 50+ Clubs and many bars as well as Cafés, pubs and much more. I started BudapestAgent as a kind of diary of the places I have visited and by now it is a really large selection of spots that I have reviewed. Some are hotspots ever since, many have closed down already and as I am trying out many new places the list gets bigger and bigger. The past years the restaurant scene in Budapest has developed towards multinational, higher standards restaurants with a lot of good cuisines, brilliant chefs and places with very nice interior. Read along the latest reviews I have written and check more places via the top menu.

    ramenka

    Restaurant Ramenka

    Ramenka is a small but stylish and good restaurant in the Jewish quarter focussing on serving superb Ramen – a Japanese noodle soup. If you are looking for other food then Ramen you better go and choose another restaurant as Ramenka solely serves soup except from a few side dishes. Nevertheless if you want to eat a fabolous Ramen Ramenka is your place to go to. Located just across the famous ruin pub Szimpla kert Ramenka has a top location with tons of people passing by. The restaurant is very minimal and fairly small so you don’t want to go there to have a romntic candle light dinner with your partner but rather get a quick but awesome soup on a Saturday afteroon before you pop in the city. With only a few places in the restaurant you need to plan some time for waiting to be seated but once you sit and ordered you will get your really tasty soup. There is not really more to say about Ramenka…

    Trófea Grill Restaurant

    Das Trófea Grill Restaurant in Budapest ist eine Top Adresse speziell wenn es um all-you-can-eat geht. Frisch zubereitetes Fleisch, eine große Auswahl an Beilagen sowie Vor- und Nachspeisen soweit das Auge reicht. Das Konzept ist relativ einfach: Für ca. 6.000 Forint kann in der Mittags- bzw. Abendessenszeit soviel gegessen werden wie man möchte bzw. kann. Ein klassisches All-you-can-eat Angebot, allerdings mit einer gewaltigen Auswahl an fertigen und noch zu machenden Gerichten. Das Herzstück ist sicherlich die Auswahl an verschiedenen Fleischsorten (keine Sorge es gibt auch Fisch) wie Hühnchen, Schwein und auch gute Stücke vom Rind, letzteres aber nur in geringer Stückzahl also früh kommen. Auch Gemüse und Shrimps können gewählt werden. Man nimmt sich also einen Teller, füllt ihn mit dem Fleisch was man gerne möchte und übergibt es dem Grillmeister der es dann vor den eigenen Augen brät so wie man es gerne hätte. Neben der Auswahl an Grillfleisch gibt es natürlich noch viele weitere Gerichte die größtenteils ungarisch sind wie zum Beispiel Pörkölt, gefülltes Kraut oder die ganz…

    Trófea Grill Restaurant

    Trófea is an all you can eat restaurant chain all over the city including currently 6 restaurants. Mainly being a grill or barbeque restaurant in Trófea you can choose the meat yourself out of the fridge and give it to the grill master who then freshly prepares it for you in front of your eyes. But that is not all, you also get fresh salads, grilled vegetables or fish, other dishes such as stews and of course a large variety of side dishes and desserts. In a nutshell that is it but the variety of food is just endless with mainly typical Hungarian dishes such as soups, pickles or stews but you can also have BBQ chicken wings or other dishes from all over the world. The heart obviously is the grill where you pick your meat and it is being grilled freshly for you. Sometimes if you get in early and are lucky you might even catch some nice steak or shrimps and not only chicken and pork meat….

    Jamie’s Italian Budapest

    NOTE: If there is any joke made about Hungary and hungry I’ll be very very disappointed and delete this post! Jamie’s Italian in Budapest is going to open up in Spring 2016! What can you expect in the Jamie Oliver Restaurant in Budapest? Jamie Oliver without a doubt is one of the best chefs around the globe and for sure the best known TV chef. But this doesn’t make a great restaurant yet. Browsing through the web and checking independent reviews about the existing Jamie’s Italian in the UK are not as good as the name might be. “What a disappointment – Mr Oliver cashing out” “Disappointing!” “bad, bad, bad” These are just a few reviews that I have found but of course you have good ones as well. And yes, the positive reviews are many more than the negative. But 132 “Terrible” and 203 “Poor” reviews do speak a clear language. Or is it just people who want to give bad reviews because it is Jamie Oliver? Address: Buda…

    Die VakVarjú Restaurants

    Das Restaurant VakVarjú in Budapest, bzw eher die 4 Restaurants, ist meines Erachtens nach eine der besten Anlaufstellen für gutes Essen zu fairen Preisen. Ein international ausgerichtetes Konzept mit Speisen die exzellent schmecken und auch satt machen. Das alles sogar mitten in der Innenstadt wo Preise normalerweise überdurchschnittlich sind. Auch das VakVarjú ist sicherlich nicht die billigste Adresse in der Stadt aber für die Leistung absolut vertretbar. Im VakVarjú in Budapest gibt es von Suppen und Vorspeisen über deftige Hauptgerichte sowie leichte Köstlichkeiten und Nachtisch alles was das Herz begehrt und der Magen mag. Hier können Sie typisch ungarische Gerichte ausprobieren wie zum Beispiel die Gänseleber aber auch guten Lachs mit Salat haben. Die Auswahl ist ausreichend, aber nicht unübersichtlich. Ein paar Worte noch zum Restaurant an sich, es ist stilvoll eingerichtet mit kleinen Feinheiten an allen Ecken und Enden. Service und Personal ist schnell und hilfsbereit, also gibt es auch von dieser Seite nichts zu meckern. Ein rundum gelungenes Restaurant für ein leckeres Abendessen.

    Pho

    Hai Nam Pho Bistro

    Hai Nam Pho Bistro bistro is a small, simple yet fantastic Vietnamese restaurant on Buda side. From outside it looks like one of these fastfood Chinese restaurants that you find at every second corner in Budapest ans also from inside it looks fairly unspectacular. Nevertheless you will leave Hai Nam Pho Bistro with the will to come back to eat one of the Phos (Vietnamese soups) or any other dish. For me a good sign about originality and quality of the food is when people from that particular country sit in a retaurant and that is the case here. The menu is relatively small which makes the choice easy. It consists half of Phos and the other half of meat and vergetable dishes that you can order with rice or noodles. A Pho is traditionally a beaf broth made of bones with slices of beef in it as well as noodles and vegetables. But also seafood, vegetarian or other meat is possible. Regarding the other dishes you get a lot…

    Magic Burger – Der beste Burger in Budapest

    Magic Burger in Budapest ist meiner Meinung nach der mit Abstand beste Burger den es gibt. Punkt! Ich habe viele Burger über die Zeit in kleineren Restaurants probiert die alle selbstgemacht waren, also kein Fast Food, und keiner kam auch nur annähernd an Magic Burger ran. Wie viele bietet auch Magic Burger an den Burger so individuell wie möglich zu gestalten mit diversen Fleischsorten zur Auswahl, verschiedenen Brötchen und vielen, auch extravaganten Toppings. Das Herz des Burgers ist das Fleisch das es als traditionelles Rind gibt, hier kann auch das ungarische Steppenrind (Magyar szürke szarvasmarha) gewählt werden, natürlich auch Hühnchen, Schwein und sogar mit Fisch. Das Fleisch kann in 2 Größen gewählt werden 100 Gramm oder 200 Gramm je nach Hunger und Lust. Das Brötchen, für mich einer der wichtigsten Bestandteile, kann als klassischen Burgerbrötchen gewählt werden, aber auch extravaganteres wie Vollkorn Brötchen, Oder knuspriges Brötchen mit sonnen getrockneten Tomaten und vieles mehr. Zusätzlich können dann die verschiedensten Toppings gewählt werden von den klassischen Arten wie Käse, in verschiedensten Arten,…

    parazs-presszo

    Parázs Presszó Thai Restaurant Budapest

    Das Parázs Presszó in Budapest ist für mich seit dem ersten Mal das ich dort gegessen habe das beste Thai Restaurant in Budapest. Es gibt einige gute Asiatische und auch Thai Restaurants in Budapest die authentisch sind (nicht diese Fast Food Chinesen an jeder Ecke), aber das mit Abstand beste ist für mich noch immer das Parázs Presszó. Sie bekommen hier absolute geniale Suppen wie auch gute Thai Currys und sonstige traditionelle Thai Spezialitäten serviert die alle, von denen die ich probiert habe, exzellent schmecken. Der Großteil der Gerichte ist mit Hähnchenfleisch, aber fast jedes Gericht kann Ihnen auch mit Schwein oder Rind serviert werden oder sogar mit Fisch. Zusätzlich gibt es viele Leckereien aus Krabben und auch sehr gute Vorspeisen. Doch auch Vegetarier kommen hier auf Ihre Kosten, es ist also nicht Fleisch im Überfluss sondern eine gesunde Mischung. Eine gute Eigenschaft vom Parázs Presszó ist die Möglichkeit die Schärfe selbst zu bestimmen denn einigen ist es entweder zu scharf oder eben nicht scharf genug, so können Sie bereits…

    Restaurant Nancsi Néni Budapest

    Das Restaurant Náncsi Néni in Budapest, bzw in der Nähe, wird Ihnen in jedem Reiseführer und auf jeder Webseite als eins der besten ungarischen Restaurants in Budapest über den Weg laufen. Es ist ein sehr ruhiges, nettes Restaurant mit traditioneller ungarischer Küche die weit ab von Touristengegenden leckere und große Portionen auf den Tisch stellt. Ein guter Beweis für ein empfehlenswertes Restaurant ist immer wenn Einheimische hier essen gehen und dies ist auch im Restaurant Nancsi Néni der Fall. Vor etwas längerer Zeit wurde es auch mit einem Michelinstern ausgezeichnet, den Nancsi Néni allerdings nicht halten konnte, aber man darf nicht vergessen das es derzeit lediglich 3 Michelinstar Restaurants in Budapest gibt. Daher ist es schon sehr hoch anzurechnen, dass das Nancsi Néni als traditionell ungarisches Restaurant jemals einen hatte! Sie finden hier alle typisch ungarischen Gerichte wie die weltbekannte Gulaschsuppe, aber auch Spezialitäten die nicht über die Landesgrenze hinaus bekannt sind wie zum Beispiel kalte Kirschsuppe. Als Hauptspeisen werde große Portionen gefülltes Kraut, Gänseleber oder auch Pörkölt (was in…

    The nightlife in Budapest is vibrant with clubs and bars spread all over the city. There are a few hotspots such as Liszt Ferenc tér, Ráday utca or Nagymező utca where the density of bars and clubs is higher however you can find nightlife spots in every part of the city. Locals say that the party on weekends rather takes place on the Pest side and that is true. All 3 above mentioned spots are located in the larger part of Budapest. Furthermore there are many events taking place in Budapest every year such as the Sziget Festival, which you shouldn’t miss, as well as one time events like concerts and performances.
    However after a long night out you might want to detox in one of the famous Thermal Baths which Budapest is famous for. With its many natural springs across the country Budapest was predestined for a spa and bath landscape and the Turks finally brought this bathing culture to Budapest and Hungary.
