Budapest Airport - Liszt Ferenc International Airport

Surely, the fastest and most convenient way to visit Budapest is travelling by airplane. The main airport of Hungary – that most probably you are going to arrive at as well – is Budapest Airport (full name: Liszt Ferenc International Airport) is a relatively small one, so you don’t have to be afraid of getting lost. It consists of 2 terminals.

How to get to the city from Budapest Airport and vice versa?

Budapest Airport is not located in the city, but don’t worry, it’s quite easy to find your way. The easiest and fastest way, of course, is to call a taxi, but it’s usually the most expensive too. If you’d like to choose a more economic option, call an Uber, or book an airport transfer shuttle service. The official shuttle service of the Budapest Airport is miniBUD, that you can find in both terminals and they provide excellent service for 4-5000 HUF. You might also find other, even cheaper options on the internet, but make sure to book these shuttles way ahead as they don’t always have enough places. You can also book a Withlocals guide to collect you from the airport with a Trabant, just like people used to do in the 1980s. It’s a unique experience that you will never forget, plus, you’ll get some tips what to do in Budapest from the friendly driver.

More about the Budapest public transportation

Public transportation company is called BKK. As soon as you arrive at the Budapest Airport, search for their office. Our recommendation would be to purchase a pass as it is way cheaper: there are 1-, 3-, 7-day tickets, group tickets (5 people), or Budapest Cards that give further discounts at some sights.
From the Budapest Airport to the downtown, from 4 AM to midnight, you can take the 200E bus, and at night, bus number 900. During daytime, you can immediately get on the Metro line 3 where 200E puts you off, which will bring you directly to the downtown. At night, 951 and 950A night buses replace the metro.
And when you’re heading back to the airport, take the same route, in the opposite direction.

Must-see Spots & Hidden Corners City Tour

Contact with Eva and coordinating was very easy and professional. The tour was interesting, Eva has a lot of knowledge and we could see her passion for her home town. Her warm and friendly attitude gave us the feeling to stroll around with an old friend! Highly recommended!

Spies & Masters: Cold War Tour in Budapest

Ivan is an easy and personable guide with whom you can walk Budapest. He shared many interesting stories, details, and photos that we would not have otherwise seen or known about. What I enjoyed most was that he had a plan for the morning, but the stories and information were tailored to our questions and interests. I really wanted to hear about the female spies which he eagerly told me about. We also just had a lovely morning of intelligent conversation, sharing of experiences, and getting to know each other. My friend and I would both recommend Ivan's tour to others interested in the lesser known stories of Budapest's history.

How long does the ride take between Budapest Airport and the city?

By car, you’ll get to the inner city in around 25-30 minutes, if there’s no traffic. If there is, count with double, at least. With bus, it takes around an hour to get to the city. Whichever you choose on the way back, make sure to give yourself enough time to arrive: count with the worst case scenario, 1.5 hours.
