Club Play in Budapest is one of the few good clubs on Buda side. Most of the nightlife in Budapest is taking part on the bigger Pest side but Club Play is located in the 11th district. Since years thousands of young people come to party and celebrate in one of the two dancefloors with two different types of music. In the bigger dancefloor you can find house music as you would hear it in Ibiza. The smaller room is for RnB, pop and hip hop tunes.

kobuci-kert-budapest

Kobuci Kert

Kobuci Kert in Budapest is a bar with food and drinks as well as a event location for smaller concerts and performances. It is a fairly simple outdoor place like a beergarden in Óbuda (northern Budapest) offering the usual things to drink and eat for one exception which is the Kobuci sandwich. Kobuci is an assembled word coming from Ko for Kolbász (Hungarian fried sausage) and Buci which is the dough. The Kobuci Sandwich On the dough there is a base of spiced sour cream (tejföl, very popular in Hungary) topped with home made, fried, ground sausage pieces and some vegetables such as tomato slices and diced cucumber. Quite simple but really tasty, this is how it looks like. The Kobuci Kert is originated back in 2005 during the biggest all art festival in Hungary, the Valley of arts. Since then Kobuci is a name and with the start of the Kobuci Kert in summer 2009 it is a permanent place in Óbuda, the Northern part of Budapest on Fő…

tesla-budapest

Tesla Budapest

Tesla in Budapest is a relatively new club that has opened its gates in winter 2014/2015. Located in the very popular Jewish district Tesla is mainly a club for dancing but also a bistro or restaurant which is open during the day offering several daily menus. In this review I will only review the club as I haven’t tried the food. So it was a cold winter night and the opening party of Tesla, a high class club in downtown Budapest. As I decided to go there at around midnight my mates and I started to walk there and from the first impression I fancied the club. A nice garden with possibilities to drink and eat something and a club opening up in the background. First shock was at the entrance asking for 3.300 HUF which for a club is already a fairly high price. Once I paid the money and got into the actual club I was asked to put down my jacket as it is not allowed to…

romkertbudapest

Club Romkert

Das Romkert ist seit Jahren einer der angesagtesten Open Air Clubs in Budapest und ist dies immer noch. Direkt am Fuße des berühmten Gellért Bergs an der Elisabethenbrücke gelegen hat es eine vorzügliche Lage für lange Tanznächte bei guter Musik. Da das der Club Romkert in Budapest ein reiner Open Air Club ist hat dieser logischerweise nur in den Sommermonaten geöffnet und auch an Regentagen geschlossen. Nichts desto trotz lockt die gute Musik, die vielen Drinks und die gut gelaunten Partygäste jedes Wochenende Massen von Menschen an die im und um das Romkert feiern wollen. Wer hier ordentlich feiern will sollte sein Portemonnaie gut gefüllt mitbringen denn wirklich billig ist das Romkert nicht. Das Publikum ist ca. zwischen 25 und 40 Jahren alt, also kein Studentenclub, und wohl eher gut betucht. Es gibt keinen Dresscode im Romkert nichts desto trotz sind die Leute etwas schicker angezogen, also im T-Shirt und in Sneakern sollte man nicht unbedingt antanzen, denn im Fall der Fälle wird man wohl an der Tür abgewiesen.

Club Ötkert

Einer der angesagtesten Clubs in Budapest ist das Ötkert, speziell bei Studenten steht der Club hoch im Kurs und ist gut besucht. An Donnerstagen gibt es sogar Internationale Studenten Treffen dort wo bis zum Abwinken gefeiert wird. Der Club Ötkert in Budapest ist nahe der berühmten St. Stefans Basilika und somit in einem Hotspot für das Budapester Nachtleben, denn hier sind viele Bars, gute Restaurants und eben auch Clubs. Wie auch bei anderen Top Clubs in Budapest wie dem Urimuri gilt auch hier ab spätestens Mitternacht ist mit langer Wartezeit zu rechnen, also am besten schon um 23 Uhr da sein. Da das Ötkert auch bei Expats sehr beliebt ist und nicht zu den billigsten Clubs der Stadt gehört ist es leider, verglichen mit den Anfangszeiten, ein wenig versnobt geworden aber zum Feiern sollte man mal da gewesen sein. Die Getränke im Ötkert sind wie bereits geschrieben nicht die günstigsten aber noch bezahlbar, also wer trinken will sollte vielleicht überlegen vorher schon zuhause oder in einer Bar vorzuglühen. Ötkert Bilder…

urimuri1

Urimuri Budapest

Das Urimuri ist derzeit einer der angesagtesten Clubs in Budapest und jeden Donnerstag, Freitag und Samstag bis auf den letzten Platz voll. Wer unbedingt rein will sollte nicht später als 23 Uhr auftauchen denn ab dann wird die Schlange lang und man kann gut und gerne mal 30 Minuten warten. Urimuri in Budapest war vorher direkt auf der Andrássy Straße in einem alten Gebäude und ist dann in die etwas entferntere Sas Straße umgezogen. Dem Club hat das nicht geschadet, es ist und bleibt eine der heißesten Adressen zum feiern in Budapest. Die Musikrichtung ist House und das vom allerfeinsten, hier werden richtig gute Platten aufgelegt die eine gute Partynacht braucht. Das Urimuri ist eine Art Ruin Bar die in Budapest extrem beliebt sind, wie zum Beispiel das Szimpla oder das Instant, das Urimuri ist aber eher ein Club zum tanzen, feiern und Spaß haben und nicht eine reine Bar in der man sich nett unterhalten kann. Das kann man zwar allerdings nur bis ca. 22 Uhr wenn die Boxen…

holdudvar-crowd

Holdudvar Budapest

Das Holdudvar auf der Margareteninsel ist einer der besten Clubs und Bars in Budapest. Die geniale Lage auf der ruhigen Margareteninsel macht das Holdudvar zu etwas besonderem und man kann hier großartig unter freiem Himmel oder auch drinnen ausgelassen feiern, einen Drink zu sich nehmen oder auch einfach nur was essen. Vom Eingang zur Margareteninsel über die Margaretenbrücke sind es nur wenige hundert Meter zum Holdudvar das täglich ab 11 Uhr geöffnet ist. Es besteht aus einem riesigen Aussenbereich der im Sommer sehr populär ist sowie einem ebenfalls nicht kleinen Innenbereich der auch im Winter zum Party machen geeignet ist. Holdudvar – Club und Bar Das Holdudvar dreht am späten Abend die Musik auf und das Restaurant wird zum Club mit Mainstream Musik sowie guten House Tunes. Ab ca. Mitternacht ist der innere Bereich packend voll mit tanzwütigen Leuten die an der endlos erscheinenden Bar einen Drink nach dem anderen zu sich nehmen. Das Feiern geht bis um 5 Uhr morgens wenn das Holdudvar die Pforten dicht macht. Zwischendurch gibt…

Club Budapest Park

The club Budapest Park in Budapest is the largest open air club in Budapest which opened its gates in May 2012. It is located next to Lágymányosi Híd Rákóczi Híd on Pest side a bit outside the city center but on the way to the well populated districts 18, 19, 20, 21, 23 and also easy to reach from Buda side where the 11th and 22nd districts are located. There are enough people living around and with the great programs Park has you find many nights sold out even though the size is massive. Just for your information in club Park you have a KFC serving you all night with snacks and food which probably no other club in Budapest can offer you. In Park there are many concerts taking place of internationally and nationally well known bands and performers such as Joss Stone, Manu Chao, Dorfmeister (from Kruder & Dorfmeister) or Anthrax and to name a few Hungarian bands there are Zagar, Hooligans or Anti Fitness Club. Nearly every…

Club Ötkert Budapest

Ötkert is one of the most popular clubs in Budapest these days so prepare for long queues in case you show up Friday or Saturday night. Located in the city center near Basilica Ötkert is in the best area for nightlife with many clubs, bars and restaurants around as well as hotels and typical tourist spots. Being a very popular hotspot at night is not the only thing Ötkert offers. You can also have a nice dinner or lunch here, visit exhibitions or listen to live music throughout the week. What makes Ötkert in Budapest so popular? In my opinion Ötkert is an absolutely great example of superb interior design. It is one of those backyard buildings which many Ruin Pubs in Budapest make use of as well. A tree in the club and different plants growing all over the place hanging down from the balconies paired with stylish interiors makes it a lovely place to go to. However at night you might not see all the bits and pieces…

bedbeach

Bed Beach Budapest

Budapest is a magnificent city known for its breathtaking architecture, it’s rich history and its beautiful scenery. It is also a city which is becoming more and more renowned for its nightlife. A seasonal city, Budapest has very cold winters and extremely warm summers and as a result has both summer and winter club seasons. During winter all the clubs are indoor, however, during the summer months the majority of the indoor clubs are closed and the outdoor clubs take over. The largest and most popular of these open air clubs is Bed Beach which is open during the summer months as well as during May and September. The night club opens in the evenings and is usually open until 5 AM and even later on special occasions. Bed Beach is located on Hajogyari Sziget, an Island dedicated completely to night clubs and bars. On such an island it is very hard for a club to stand out, Bed Beach, however, stands out due its very chic and clean design…

Good luck.

Apartments in Budapest

During your studies you will need to rent an apartment or at least a room in a shared flat. In general the rental prices are not too high so it is affordable to have a small city center apartment if that fits in your budget of course. More cheap is to only rent a room within an apartment together with other students this is also fun most of the time. The further you move outside the city center the cheaper the rent will be and as not all universities are in the Budapest city center this might even be an advantage for you. For fun and entertainment in the city you can simply take one of the many public transport opportunities and within few minutes you will be in town.

The Worlds most “powerful” Passports

There are passports and there are passports. Not with every passport you can travel freely in every country for various reasons. But which are the passports you can travel into most of the countries freely? And which are the ones that don’t allow you to enter most of the countries? The list below gives clarity and as the refugee topic is more actual then ever these days I think it is worth to publish this list. The first place is shared between the UK and the USA followed by France, Germany and South Korea on a shared second place. So the list goes on with mainly Western countries but with less free access to many countries. On a shared ninth place comes Hungary alongside Czech republic and Australia. On the bottom of the list on a shared place 80 you find Solomon Islands, Myanmar (Burma), South Sudan, Sao Tome and Principe and Palestinian Territories.

Karaván – The Street Food Plaza

Karaván in Budapest is taking advantage of the increasing popularity of food trucks in Budapest (yes, there is already a festival for it). A small lot in Budapest downtown where a building used to be but got demolished functions as a parking place for several street food artists serving classy food before, during or after your party in the nightlife of Budapest. It is a wild mixture of tasts, all independent serving the food they know the best and all of it is really tasty.

Apartment Scam in Budapest

A new type of scam came up recently in Budapest (probably this is practised all over the world) which is affecting all people looking for an apartment to rent. Imagine you find a nice apartment in Budapest on one of the major real estate websites and agree on an appointment with the supposed owner. The apartment looks nice, the rental is fair (attention here often very cheap prices are offered) and everything seems to be perfect. The supposed owner takes out a document which appears to be a rental contract which you will sign and so does your counterpart. It is stamped and all looks legit. You are now supposed to pay the deposit which usually is equivalent to 2 months rental fee. So you pay as you signed the contract, saw the apartment and are happy to move in. But once you want to move in the apartment the supposed owner is not reachable anymore, you don’t have a key and you have no clue how to get into…

Mobilfunkanbieter & Handyvertrag in Ungarn

Für einen Handyvertrag in Ungarn bieten sich 3 große Mobilfunkanbieter an, die sich den Markt aufteilen und dabei relative gleiche Anteile haben. Der größte Mobilfunkanbieter in Ungarn ist T-Mobile das zur Magyar Telekom (Ungarische Telekom) gehört und die wiederum zum Großteil in den Händen der Deutsche Telekom ist. Fast gleichauf aber ein wenig dahinter liegt Vodafone das logischerweise zum gleichnamigen Englischen Mutterkonzern gehört. Die drittgrößte Kraft unter den Mobilfunkanbietern ist Telenor das ebenfalls zum gleichnamigen Mutterkonzern aus Norwegen gehört. Grundsätzlich sind Mobilfunkanbieter in Ungarn , wie auch in Deutschland, so aufgestellt, dass es Prepaid sowie Postpaid Verträge gibt. Sprich Prepaid Karten müssen im vorhinein aufgeladen werden, das kann entweder an Geldautomaten, an Tankstellen oder natürlich beim Anbieter selbst vorgenommen werden. Postpaid Karten benötigen einen Vertrag mit dem Mobilfunkanbieter. Die Preise schwanken logischerweise je nach Vertragsart beziehungsweise nach Gesprächsminuten und Datenvolumen. Beispiel Handyvertrag in Ungarn T-Mobile “Next S díjcsomag” Monatliche Gebühr (ohne Handy): 6.490 Forint (ca. 20€) 160 Inklusivminuten SMS zu T-Mobile Flatrate, 35HUF pro SMS außerhalb von T-Mobile 500MB Daten…

question-answer

Can you recommend a website for Apartment rental in Budapest?

There are several Budapest apartment rental websites where you also can find there houses, properties, holiday houses or business premises. Also you need to distinguish between long term and short term rental which makes a great difference in where to start your search. Assuming that you are interested in long term rentals I can recommend you the following websites to start your research: realestatehungary.hu (English version of ingatlan.com) ingatlanbazar.hu oc.hu/en alberlet.hu/en dh.hu/ Except for Ingatlanbazar and Duna House (dh.hu) all websites have a English version however the property description will still be in Hungarian but at least you can see the features like size, number of rooms, condition etc in English. For short term rentals like a week or even a month I still recommend you to check out the apartments listed on Airbnb which are perfect and uncomplicated for short term rentals and fairly cheap as well. Also have a look at the 10 most beautiful Airbnb apartments in Budapest I have collected recently. ← → x × Previous…

Studentenwohnung in Budapest

Studentenwohnungen in Budapest gibt es genügend, auch in den alten Teilen Budapests die schön sind aber auch in Aussenbezirken in denen es eher ruhiger ist. An vielen Enden der Stadt werden neue, nicht schöne Wohnungsblöcke gebaut in denen es relativ günstig Wohnungen zu kaufen gibt. Grundsätzlich muss jeder selbst wissen welche Art von Wohnung er bevorzugt, und in welchem Bezirk es sein soll denn es gibt viele Möglichkeiten in Budapest ein Dach über dem Kopf zu finden. Wohnungspreise in Budapest sind derzeit am steigen und eignen sich so auch für eine Investition in Budapester Immobilien. Wer händeringend eine Wohnung in Budapest sucht dem empfehle ich eine der folgenden Immobilienseiten aus Ungarn zu besuchen: Ingatlan.com Ingatlanbazar.hu Ingatlanok.hu ← → x × Previous Next

WG Budapest

Eine WG in Budapest lohnt sich vor allen Dingen, wie auch in Deutschland, für Studenten um so Kosten zu sparen und möglicherweise auch schnellen Kontakt mit anderen Studenten zu knüpfen. Das Problem eine WG in Budapest zu finden ist sicher die Frage wo man anfangen sollte zu suchen. Die beste Möglichkeit die ich von vielen Studenten mitbekommen habe ist in der Uni direkt am “Schwarzen Brett” zu suchen oder einen Aushang zu machen. Eine andere Möglichkeit sind sicher Bekannte und Freunde die entweder schon in Budapest leben oder dort gelebt haben un einem durch persönliche Kontakte weiterhelfen können. Ansonsten gibt es in Ungarn, wie in Deutschland auch, viele Immobilienbörsen die allerdings nur auf Ungarisch sind. ← → x × Previous Next

Bike-Sharing in Budapest – MOL Bubi

Bike-Sharing is already a big thing in other European cities and working perfectly fine. Now bike-sharing will come to Budapest and the bike stations are being built all over the city so that soon the bikes will come. But what is bike-sharing exactly? The concept is simple: You take a locked bike from a bike station, cycle wherever you need to go and lock the bike again on the nearest bike station. Obviously there are many advantages but also obstacles. I think that we can be very happy that Budapest has decided to make bike-sharing available for all of us. Advantages of Bike-Sharing: No investment for a bike needed A good, quality bike always near you within the city Availability 24 hours a day But there are a few disadvantages as well: No bike available at a specific station No place available at a station to put back the bike But how do I take a locked bike? Does it cost something? How many stations and bikes are there available?…

Student Apartments

Especially for foreign students it is hard to find an apartment in Budapest meating their needs like size, location and of course the price. Sometimes it makes sense to share an apartment with other students but to find these apartments is quite hard. On THIS post I have written some time ago are some serious discussions going on who has an apartment to rent, who needs an apartment and which time. As far as I heart from some of the commenters it worked out already. But this post is in general about apartment share and since students sometimes have different needs than other people who want to share an apartment I would like this post to be the discussion for student apartments or shared apartments for students only. So if you need an apartment because you will move to Hungary for studies please write a comment with exactly what you need and probably the price you can pay.

Morrisons Opera in Budapest

Morrisons club in Budapest is closed to the opera at Andrassy ut. You have to go down some stairs and there you are. Why I wrote “Dance and drink with the train”? Because Morrisons in Budapest has a small train running 2,5 meters above the bar. It’s a little gadget but nothing more. Besides this little train Morrisons has a very long bar with 4 or 5 different types of beer, cocktails, longdrinks, wine and more. Sometimes in Morrisons they have Karaoke nights where many people go to and have fun. Who is not drinking or singing at the moment can dance on the large dancefloor of Morrisons. One thing thats not too good there is the music or better the DJ. No song lasts longer than 2 minutes because he is already playing the next song. A little bit anoying, specially when you like a song.

Most dentists in Hungary do not earn much money if they work as a regular dentist that is why it became very popular to treat foreigners either on their holiday or even on organized trips just for this one purpose. After research among some of the leading Hungarian dental treatment companies I found out that you can save 30 – 80% compared to Germany, the UK or the Netherlands. This big saving, depending on the complexity of course, leaves enough money to pay the flight to Budapest, accommodation  and catering in case it is not offered in the package. There are several companies across Europe offering dental tourism trips to Budapest or other parts of Hungary, not only because of the prices but also because of the reputation Hungarian dentists have around the globe.

Budapest Airport

Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport /Ferihegy 1 & 2! Budapest airport or as it is called “Ferihegy” Liszt Ferenc International Airport is seperated in two terminals which basically devide the low cost airlines from the charter flights. Terminal one which was a long time shut down got rebuild a couple years ago due to the mass of low cost airlines who arose in the last years because they are usually offering a great airfare. A good investment because nowadays the Budapest airport is on a high standard even though it is quiet small compared to other airports in Europe. Terminal two which was the regular airport is still in a not very nice shape. Devided in two parts (a and b) big airlines like BA, Malév or Lufthansa arrive and depart here. The Budapest airport is around 16 kilometers away from the city center of Budapest. The airport transfer is nowaday quiet flexible and very easy. Within 30 minutes maximum you are in the heart of Budapest. For more information around Budapest…

To share an apartment in Budapest can be very interesting for students abroad as well as students who come to Budapest for an internship. Sharing an apartment with people is a cheap alternative to an own apartment and can also be easier if someone else is the main hirer of the apartment. Specially for young people apartment sharing is always an alternative during the studies or even while working. Budapest has many apartments that are more or less perfect for living with 2 or 3 people in one apartment because they have a big living room and besides some smaller rooms. Of course not everybody likes to share his or her apartment and prefers an own apartment. ← → x × Previous Next

Language Schools in Budapest

If you are living in Budapest or Hungary since a while or you are planning to stay for longer you might take into consideration to learn Hungarian. Therefore a language School is probably the best choice because Hungarian is a very difficult language due to the fact that it is not related to any other language in the world. I can tell from my own experience that it takes a while to understand Hungarian grammar, it is hard to learn the vocabulary but on the other hand it helps a lot to survive in Hungary and people absolutely love if a foreigner speaks Hungarian.

Learning Hungarian with Youtube

Everybody knows that Youtube hosts tons of videos from professional HD ready movie trailors in 16:9 over semi professional Vodcasts to amateur movies made by all kinds of people in low quality. Anyways while surfing the other day on Youtube I found several videos dealing with learning Hungarian by watching videos. A voice is pronouncing the words and in the same time you see a picture of the object. In the case of the picture the video deals with fruits. The same is available for numbers and all kinds of topics. I think it is a quite good idea to learn some words if you are really a beginner. Here you can find the fruits video, animals and seasons. Honestly this should have been done by a language school in Hungary. I mean the 3 videos have been watched around 3500 times together so that would have been a lovley promotion for the language school. Anyways, check out the videos if you are learning Hungarian or even if you are…
