Vacation rentals in Hungary

Find the perfect accommodation

Whether in the city centre or in the country, Hungary offers a wide range of comfortable holiday accommodation. Rurally situated vacation rentals are the ideal starting point to reach the national parks or the shores of Lake Balaton in a short time. An apartment in the middle of the old town of Budapest or another larger city is usually not far from the sights and museums of the chosen destination.

Apartments for the whole family

Accommodation in Hungary is often in modern homes surrounded by a beautiful garden with barbecue. You experience the Puszta particularly idyllically in a country house equipped with arcades. In the centres of the cities, luxurious apartments are offered in representative villas from the time of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

Holidays in Hungary

Location and orientation

The holiday destination in the Pannonian Basin

The Republic of Hungary has been a member of the European Union since 2004. The Hungarian currency is called the forint. The Central European landlocked country borders on Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Romania. Hungary's capital is Budapest. Other big cities are Miskolc, Debrecen, Gyor, Szeged and Pécs.

Discover unique natural beauties

The Puszta is a landscape that can only be found in Hungary. Characteristic are the steppelike vegetation patterns and the typical draw wells. If you want to see the puszta in its original form, the best place to visit is the Hortobágyi Nemzeti National Park, where this landscape still exists without any agricultural use.

The "Hungarian Sea"

Hungary is a popular holiday destination for bathers, mainly because of Lake Balaton. The 77 kilometre long and 14 kilometre wide lake has a water surface of approximately 600 square kilometres and is thus the largest lake in Central Europe. Along the shore there are numerous holiday resorts such as Balatonalmádi, Balatonfenyves and Balatonszemes. The lake is particularly shallow and therefore offers pleasantly warm water temperatures.

Things to know

Low rain days in the east of the country

Due to the shielding effect of the mountains, Hungary has a rather dry continental climate. Winters get cold, summers get hot. Most precipitation occurs in early summer, with rainfall decreasing from west to east.

Try hearty dishes in Hungary

Many culinary specialities from Hungary are world famous. These include paprika chicken with dumplings and goulash, dishes prepared mainly with green pepper, onions and tomatoes and lots of red paprika powder. Typical Hungarian dishes are also fish soup and Újházy chicken soup. Salami and spicy Debrecziner sausages are also popular.

The world-famous invention "Rubik´s Cube" was designed in 1976 by the Hungarian civil engineer Ernö Rubik. This is a colorful magic cube that can be placed in 43 trillion different positions.
