Vacation rentals in Budapest

An apartment in the capital of Hungary

In search of a beautifully situated holiday accommodation in Budapest, you will find what you are looking for, especially in the idyllic centre. Thanks to an excellent bus and underground network, you will benefit from short distances between your vacation rental and sights such as the Castle Palace and St. Stephen's Basilica. Of course, you live particularly beautifully on both sides of the Danube, directly on the banks of the river glistening in the sun and on the edge of the small town forest to the northeast. On the other hand, if you are looking for a spacious accommodation for an extended family holiday, it is best to look for a vacation rental with garden in the outskirts, which are very well connected to the centre by local transport.

Travelers and Activities

Discover the cultural paradise on the Danube

Budapest was founded by the Romans in 89 AD and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. No wonder that the metropolis with its decorative facades is still a paradise for culture lovers today. So embark on a journey through time that takes you from the Fishermen's Bastion to the Citadel, the Great Synagogue and the Parliament Building. Take part in a German-speaking guided tour and let yourself be guided through the staircase, larded with gold and marble, and marvel at the Hungarian crown jewels in the cupola hall. However, the absolute highlight of every holiday is the landmark of the city, the castle that towers high above the famous Chain Bridge. A visit is worthwhile twice as much, as in the interior there is beside the Hungarian National Gallery also the Historical Museum of the city.

Things to know

Regular events

The heart of the Budapest event season consists of two major cultural festivals, the Spring Festival and the Autumn Festival. Be there when the international greats of classical music come to Budapest to play. Other highlights include the film festival in February and the theatre festival in April, as well as the Sziget Festival on the island of Óbudai in August, which attracts over 400,000 visitors to the Danube every year.

Best travel time

Since it can still be very cold well into March, the holiday season for culture lovers does not start until mid-April. On the other hand, thanks to numerous hours of sunshine and comparatively low precipitation, this period extends well into October. Those who are sensitive to heat should not book their vacation rental for the two high summer months of July and August, especially as the heat can build up in the city at this time, making sightseeing a sweaty affair.

Top 5 travel tips

1. The big markets of Budapest.

The large shopping streets of the city are located in the pedestrian zone of the Pest district. This is the actual city centre and in terms of shopping possibilities the Váci utca is to be mentioned above all, which is probably known beyond Hungary's borders. The large markets of Budapest are also something special. Here you get virtually everything you can imagine and only one example is the market in the central market hall. Since 1897 it has been regarded as the centre of trade in Budapest.

2. Explore Budapest with your palate

A visit to Hungary's capital is not complete without a side trip to the regional cuisine. So go to one of the cosy restaurants in the old town and try specialities such as the traditional goulash soup (Gulyásleves), the piquant chicken seasoned with paprika (Paprikás csirke) or the potato dumplings (Barackos gombóc). The fact that there is no shortage of sweet sins either is proven by the fantastic pancakes with a filling of raisins, rum, chocolate sauce, walnuts and candied orange peel.

3. Places of interest

On the other side of the river - in the Buda district - you should not miss to visit the Gellert Hill with its citadel and Gellert monument. From here you have a breathtaking view over the whole city. It is also worth visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Fishermen's Bastion.

4th Gellert bath

The old Gellertbad was built in Art Nouveau style and offers unique architecture as well as a pleasant thermal atmosphere. There are over 120 hot springs, 30,000 cubic metres of mineral-rich water in 21 baths, 10 of which are spas. Many of the baths are.

5. Let your soul dangle in the Rudas thermal bath

If you are looking for relaxation, the venerable halls of the 450 year old Rudas Thermal Bath are the perfect place for you. Enjoy the pleasant warmth of the water surrounded by historical masonry and let yourself be carried away into the time of the Arab blossom. Alternatively, you can sweat out everyday stress in the sauna, take a steam bath or let yourself be pampered by the hands of trained masseurs.
