Why punish your feet walking?! There is no better way to see the sights and learn the history of Budapest than by joining a bike tour. Spend a relaxing day touring both sides of the Danube with a small group and get oriented with the best of what the city offers.
Meet at the bike rental head office in central Budapest. After a short stop at the Hungarian Parliament building, ride across the River Danube to the Buda side of the city. Here, explore the Castle District, the oldest part of Budapest and home to the Matthias Church, Fisherman's Bastion, underground Labyrinth of Buda Castle, Alexander Palace, and the Royal Palace.Next, cycle back to Pest and pass the Gresham Palace, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and St. Stephen's Basilica. The route to Heroes' Square also takes us along Andrassy Avenue, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002.Notable sights along the way include the Hungarian State Opera House and the House of Terror, a museum that chronicles the two main oppressive regimes of Hungary’s past — fascism and Communism.Finally, cycle around the City Park to see the Széchenyi Baths and Vajdahunyad Castle before your tour ends back at the starting point.
