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.

Spies & Masters: Cold War Tour in Budapest

Ivan listens to your wishes (in a group everyone expects something different) and builds a tailor made experience in the great city of Budapest to make it interesting for everyone. His knowledge about the subject seems bottomless and he is able to transfer this knowledge in an enjoyable way.

Budapest is easy to explore by yourself, but it's hard to experience the full potential without Ivan.

Must-see Spots & Hidden Corners City Tour

We were a bit intimidated about visiting Budapest so we booked a tour w Eva through With Locals. She met us at our hotel so we didn’t need to figure out mass transit. She was a great guide. She asked some questions to taylor our tour to fit us and then took us all over both sides of the Danube. She was very well informed and charming to boot. She is passionate about Hungary and gave so much more than a programmed tour. Best way to start a visit to this beautiful city!

Budapest Off-the-Beaten Track Private Tour

If you want a truly open and informational tour from a local, book Irene!!! I have booked many tours and she was one of the best! Knowledgeable, personal able and genuinely interested in what you as a tourist want to see!! I loved my time with her!! Budapest cane alive.

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.
