What to Expect
Explore the amazing monuments of the city center on a lovely walking tour of Budapest that's the perfect introduction to Hungary's capital for visitors who do not have enough time, money or energy for a longer sightseeing venture.
Start at 10:00 or 14:00 from the central tourist information office and get an overview of Budapest’s fractured history - from the Medieval royal residence to the rapid urban growth of the 19th century, the Nazi and Communist dictatorships, and the recent democratic change.
See sights of religious faith as the tour moves from Elisabeth Square to the monumental St. Stephen’s Basilica, and finally to the Gothic splendor of Matthias Church and walk at a comfortable pace (around 2 kilometers / 1.2 miles). The tour is ideal for individual visitors, couples, families, small companies or even larger groups.
