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

Eva knows exactly what most tourists want. Great overview of the tour but save lots of boring details. She gives a lasting impression of the main subject matter regarding the tour. Very interesting narator too.

It was a wonderful afternoon tour in Budapest with Claudia. Me and my wife loved every minute of the tour. Claudia did a great job taking around the city and highlighting the interesting things. Also she gave us advice on where to go after tour. The wine tasting bar was amazing :) thank you:)

Design Your Own Hungarian Tote Bag!

Orsolya is a lovely person and we had a great time designing our own tote bags. It made our weekend trip to Budapest even more special and I can only recommend the workshop to anyone who likes to be creative!

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.
