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.

Budapest Off-the-Beaten Track Private Tour

Irene is a wonderful person with real passion for life, Budapest and life in Budapest. Although she's very knowledgeable about the city, she's still learning and isn't hiding it. She enjoys her tours as much as her "guests" and she is always ready for a discussion and never in a hurry. We love Irene and because of her, we love Budapest even more than before.

Magical Boat Cruise With a Free Drink

My daughter and I were only in Budapest for 2 nights and wanted to make the most of our experience. After seeing both Buda and Pest on foot for two days, we decided we wanted to see the city at night, from the Danube. Agnes was our guide on the 1 hour evening cruise. She was very personable, full of energy, funny, and VERY knowledgeable. She gave us all the history, myths, and legends of everything we were seeing. She shared a lot of fun facts and points of interest along the way. Our boat was “The Fanny”. It was just what we wanted: nothing fancy, a drink when we got on board, light music, and open decks for great, unobstructed night viewing. Agnes is also very well traveled and offered some advice and suggestions at our next destination. I highly recommend booking a tour with Agnes! You won’t be disappointed.

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.
