A good way to explore the Danube.

This is a famous tram, that rides mostly along the Pest side of the Danube, thus allowing its commuters to have great views of the river and the Buda part of town.

Instead of paying expensive hop-on-hop-off bus rates, take Tram 1 and Tram 2 around the ring, and see all of Budpest quite easily. For a fraction of the price, see a good part of the city.

Thinly disguised scheme to rob unsuspecting foreigners. Avoid. Better to take taxis to get around...

Can't get lost with Tram number 2, the line goes along the Duna river on the Pest side and connect with another very useful tram line (4-6) a bit further away than the Parliament. Super frequent (every 2 to 5 min) and sightseeing, what else? As on all public means, make sure your ticket is obliterated or your travel card... More

In other cities the 'scenic trams' know they are something special and you have to pay extra. Tram 2 was included in your travel pass so was very cheap. It's not the longest route and it does go quite quickly, but it still gives you an alternative view of the city and is good for hop-on-hop-off.

This tram is definitely a very easy, cheap and beautiful way to know the city by the river. It runs smoothly and ina very good frequency. The old fashioned car brings a charm to the ride. I strongly reccomend this ride to all visitors.

From December to the beginning of January you can catch the christmas tram. Beautiful lights covered the tram. The Tram drives near danube, so you got a nice few. Also use the tram at night, to get some romantic.

The tramway goes around slowly, stops in many interesting places and is fun to travel in. The old ticket validation device you can still find is some of the tramways adds to its charm.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
