What to do while in Budapest

What to do while in Budapest

Budapest is a surprising city known for its architecture. While here, you’ll want to want to visit Halászbástya, otherwise known as Fisherman's Bastion, which is a 19th-century structure that is the picture of romantic monuments. Nearby are the must-see Budapest Castle grounds. One of the great benefits of long-term visits to the city is the opportunity for day trips; rent a car in Budapest to explore the riverside villages along the Danube Bend, just a short drive north.
Winter in Budapest

Winter in Budapest

Hungarians revel in the Christmas spirit during the winter months, making the city of Budapest a magic place to visit when the crisp, cold weather rolls in. Enjoy mulled wine, traditional foods and local crafts at either of the two largest Christmas markets: at Vörösmarty Square or at St. Stephen's Basilica. When the cold air gets a bit too bracing, hunker down with friends and cocktails at one of the city’s bars.

Great service, thanks a lot!
Orsolya D.
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.
Excellent service from everyone involved at Sixt Rent a Car Vaci Road
