Budapest Sightseeing – Tours, Guides, Attractions
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.
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 Heroes’ Square in Budapest is one of the town’s landmarks and a secured place in every guidebook about Budapest one which you can often even find it on the cover. All the tourists, expats, business travelers and also locals are thrilled each time they see this spot with the Millennium Monument, the city park next to it, the museums and all the beauty around the Heroes’ Square. Budapest is really full of historical sights and beautiful buildings but the Heroes’ Square is another dimension and it cannot be left out to not take a picture of yourself in front of it. Best shot guarantee is at night when all is illuminated. Located at the end of the beautiful Andrássy út it faces downtown Budapest and the nice living area around. The Heroes’ Square and its surrounding What many people call the Heroes’ Square is actually just the square itself but on and of course around it are wonderful sights and places to go to. On the square itself is…
The Matthias Church in Budapest is one of the most famous and most frequented sights in Budapest. In the heart of Castle District and with the Fisherman’s Bastion in front the Matthias Church is surrounded by other popular sights thus one of area of sights in Budapest which no tourist wants to miss. Additionally to the beautiful sights located up in the Castle District you can also have a walk through the historical district with its beautiful buildings and little roads. Of course the most spectacular and also most popular thing to do in the Castle District is the view and the picture you would like to take. About Matthias Church in Budapest The Matthias Church was built in the 13th century and named after King Mátyás who ruled Hungary between 1458 and 1490. The Roman Catholic church is also know as the “Church of our Lady”. In 1541 when the Turks ruled the country it was used as the biggest Mosque in the country, many ornaments and artifacts have…
Stylish Szimpla And another Szimpla Kert type of bar in Budapest yet a bit more stylish and modern. ApaCuka is in the center of the city but almost not findable. ApaCuka is in Horánsky utca which the taxidriver (40 years in business) and I never heart before. A quick look at the map tells it is near Blaha Luiza Tér. ￩ ￫ x × Previous Next
Szimpla Kert in Budapest is the raw-model of a ruin pub and was probably one of the first of its kind. Over the years Szimpla became increasingly popular, several years ago it was a trendy place for students and alternative people, nowadays it has a place in every Budapest guide as a must-see attraction. On weekends it is packed with tourists, stags and other foreigners but it still has the old ruin flair it had from the beginning. The Szimpla kert (or Szimpla kertmozi, meaning garden cinema, as it is called originally) is a mixture of an open air bar, a club and a cinema. At least in former times alternative and underground movies have been shown here, nowadays the space is needed for more chairs and space to sit. From the street you almost miss the entrance because it looks like a regular door entrance (watch out for a small yellow sign) but inside it is amazing. You enter the Szimpla kert and stand in front of a massive…
Bar Instant in Budapest is one of the famous ruin pubs which are very popular in Budapest and are very trendy among tourists, expats as well as locals. It is a similar place to Szimpla Kert or other ruin pubs which seem to open up on each and every corner due to the success they are. The mechanism is fairly simple, an old ruin or rather not restaurated house in the city center is rented, most of the time because it is too expensive to renew it, put some old chairs which you can buy on the flee market or used from other bars and pubs in there and place a bar somewhere. That is all what a ruin pub is about. ￩ ￫ x × Previous Next
Table tennis, arts and beer! Bar Kuplung in Budapest is a very new place but already discovered by many people. Located in Kiraly utca it is in between Liszt Ference ter, Deak ter and other well visited places in Budapest. Kuplung looks like a rotten place and is hidden behind a small entrance which you would never find or even see if nobody told you. ￩ ￫ x × Previous Next
Siphon, relax and popcorn! Bar Szoda in Budapest is a nice little bar in Wessélenyi utca. The bar is devided in two floors. The upper bar consists of chairs, sofas and tables where you can have a drink or sandwich plus you can eat popcorn and drink soda water from a siphon for free. Szoda is a very comfortable place with silent music where people meet to talk and have a chat. ￩ ￫ x × Previous Next
Underground, drinks and good music! Chachacha in Budapest has a new place in Budapest since the construction works are running on Kalvin tér. The new place for Chachacha is near Nyugati pályaudvar and West End City Center. ChaChaCha still has a very special atmosphere. For me one of the best places in town to start the evening with a beer for 300 HUF (0,4 liter) which is approximately 1,20€. Every day of the week another DJ is showing up and mixing at the turntables. It starts quiet and easy in the early afternoon but gets loud later the night. ￩ ￫ x × Previous Next

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 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…
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 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….
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…
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. Restaurant VakVarjú Information: Wie gesagt…
Finding true vegan restaurants in Budapest is not too hard as this is a very vegan friendly city and once you have a look around you will be able to chose from several great vegan restaurants. I myself am not vegan so it took me some research to find them online but now I have gathered a nice little list of 100% vegan restaurants. No restaurants that seel 95 meat dishes and 1 salad which is vegan but these restaurants are exactly what you are looking for. Vegan, creative and in Budapest.

They offer daily different dishes from hearty dishes including cabbage and dumplings to more exotic food with coconut and curry.

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 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,…
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…
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…
Budapest Nightlife & Detox – Clubs, Bars and Baths
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.
