Why go to Budapest

A city of historic buildings, quirky bars, bold wines, hearty comfort food, and elegant open-air spas fed by natural hot springs, Budapest city breaks deliver a masterclass in culture, romance, and indulgence.

Historical sites are everywhere in Budapest. Explore the hilltop Buda Castle, then cross the river for a tour through the ornate Parliament House. Take time to see the darker side of Budapest, as well. Visit the House of Terror museum in the former secret-police headquarters to learn about life under fascist and communist regimes.

Budapest is a great city to discover on foot. Explore the network of trails around the Buda Hills for some relief from the heat of the city in summer. Hike or cycle and stop for a picnic at lunchtime. Or take a stroll along the banks of the River Danube, walking across the Széchenyi Chain Bridge to cross between Buda and Pest.

After a day of sightseeing, sink into one of the city’s beautiful thermal baths, as popular with locals as they are with tourists, or knock back the local firewater in one of the city's famous ruin bars – abandoned buildings converted into arty drinking dens.

Nightlife is one of the city’s main draws – stay in the Jewish Quarter to be closest to all the action. Nightclubs and late-night live-music venues cater to the city’s large student population and young-at-heart tourists.

For something a little more refined, visit some of the city’s wine bars to sample excellent Hungarian tipples or delve into Budapest's classical music scene in any of its grand concert halls. Feast on Hungarian comfort food in a traditional vendéglő (restaurant) and hang out hipster-style in the after-dark coffee shops.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
