Best places to visit in Hungary

  • Budapest: The capital of Hungary, Budapest has several museums, outdoor spaces (like zoos and botanical gardens), and cultural sights to visit, such as opera and theater houses. This city is also known for its thermal baths, which are said to provide relief from muscle aches and pains. 
  • Györ: Györ is a city rich in history and culture. It has cobblestone roads and various monuments like the Napoleon Monument and the Boatman Sculpture. There are also medieval castles and palaces to see. 
  • Lake Balaton: Make a stop to see Lake Balaton, one of the largest lakes in Europe, during your trip to Hungary. This is a great place to go fishing or to enjoy other water sports like paddleboarding, sailing and swimming. There are also many quaint towns nearby where you can tour historical landmarks like the Benedictine Abbey of Tihany and a doll museum. 

Summer in Hungary

There is a lot to do and see while on vacation in Hungary. You can hop in your rental car and head to the beach for a day of swimming and water fun. If you like wine, you can do some wine tasting near Budapest and the regions of Eger and Tokaj. Several festivals, such as the Salsa Festival and the Dance and Music Festival, are held in July.

We received exemplary client service from Norbert and his team. We hired a minibus for a company trip to the Netherlands. The Sixt team was great from step one. They are professional, considerate and a pleasure to do business with. Our car was broken into in Amsterdam and the team was also efficient and helpful in sorting out all our problems. I am positive that we will only use Sixt for car rental services in the future.

Every year I rent from Sixt when I come home to visit. We are a family of five - so we need a bigger car than usual. Sixt have been able to accommodate me every time. The cars were clean, and in great condition.

The staff at pick up and drop off are extremely professional and helpful. I

I need to mention Marci, who went out of his way to help me figure some logistics during my car pick up. He made the transition go smoothly.
