Traffic Information

Budapest functions as a major highway hub and many roads end within the city limits. Adding to an overall sense of overview, Budapest's road system is conveniently designed with several ring roads and avenues expanding out from the city center. Ring road M0 around Budapest is the focal point of traveling in and out of the city with, when finished, 66 miles of highway in length. From there you can take the M1 to beautiful Bratislava or go even further to imperial Vienna.

Avoid driving during rush hours from 8am to 10am and 4pm to 6pm, especially on the great boulevard Nagykörút. When it comes to parking, Budapest is just like any other major city and has its own rules to follow. Parking is divided into different zones with it generally being paid from 8am and 6pm from Monday to Friday. On-street parking is free on the weekends. More conveniently, Budapest has numerous parking garages scattered around downtown that are easy to access, safe and readily available.

Sightseeing Destinations

With its impressive natural scenery, Art Nouveau architecture, and vibrant culture, Budapest is pure magic. The Eastern European metropolis has two faces: Buda, with its glowing hills and enchanting castles, and the bustling Pest with all the hustle of shops, restaurants and bars you can think of.

'Taking the waters' has been a Budapest experience since the time of the Romans. How could you miss out? Whether you're seeking a cure for whatever ailment or are just in it for the fun and relaxation, Veli Bej Baths are the way to go. One of the oldest (1575) and most beautiful Ottoman-era baths in Budapest, with five thermal pools of varying temperatures, it's not as tourist heavy as the other hot spots and therefore definitely worth a visit.

Called the 'City of Living Art', Szentendre is a picturesque town that sits at the foot of the Pilis Hill, on the Danube bank north of Budapest. Due to its location close to the Hungarian capital, it's perfect for a daytrip with your rental car when you're longing for some country side.

What to Do in Budapest in Winter 2020

A trip to Budapest in the winter is a magical experience. Not only can you walk around and take in this beautiful city, but you can also relax and shake the chill in one of the many spas and thermal baths that Budapest is known for. The winter temperatures will hover around freezing, but if you are there in December you can warm up at a Christmas market or at the City Park ice rink. The Buda Castle is a great place to visit and is even more picturesque with a blanket of snow. Or if you want to see the sights while staying warm, opt for a cruise on the Danube or on a special tram decked out with Christmas lights in December and January.
