Budapest city view


Beyond Lake Neusiedl

The Puszta in the east, two lakes in the west and in between a vibrant city on the Danube. How about exploring the land beyond Lake Neusiedl for a change?

Our Nightjet Partner MAV (Hungarian Railway) comfortably takes you straight to the “Paris of the East” from Zurich, Munich or Berlin in just one night. Broad avenues, Art Nouveau buildings and a truly special coffee house culture. No, we are not talking about Vienna. But you will run into Empress Sissi all the time - on the walls of Matthias Church in the old district of Buda, for instance. This is also where the imposing castle palace towers over the Danube. After exploring the castle district and enjoying the views from Mount Gellért you should try one of the Hungarian specialities offered in the city’s historic market hall. Hungary is well-known for its hot springs; In Budapest, one can even take a hot bath in a historic ambience in the middle of the city.

Fed up with the big city? In no time, you can get out and explore a little artists’ village with a Mediterranean flair: Szentendre is also located on the shores of the Danube and ideal for a relaxed day trip. Grassalkovich Palace in Gödöllő, on the other hand, features Baroque architecture dating back to the Monarchy. Sometimes, it pays off to explore the land beyond Lake Neusiedl.
