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.

The Best of Budapest - Private Bike Tour

Matthias was a great guide, extremely knowledgeable, kind, and warm and an engaging personality. His English is beyond fluent. He knows and loves Budapest and his tour was the favorite thing we did there. Highly recommend.

Communist Budapest

At first Alessandro seemed to be prepared for a different tour but this was soon rectified and we visited places which without him we would not have known were relevant to the Soviet and German occupation . At each place Alessandro told us its relevance and its place in the history of the periods. Alessandro knew his facts but did not bombard us with too much so he always kept us interested as well as informed.
He went out of his way for us meeting us at our hotel answering our questions about our stay in Budapest and when we said we had not seen any Soviet style apartments he took us to an estate outside the centre.
A very likeable and friendly guy

Budapest Art Nouveau Tour

We went on the Art Nouveau tour. Claudia is great! She weaves history, culture, and architecture together seamlessly. At the end of the tour, you will have learned a great deal, but it will just seem like you were on a pleasant walk.

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.
