Sixt Tips

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. And of course, no visit to Budapest is complete without taking a dip in one of the many thermal baths that make the Hungarian capital stand out from any other major city.

Budapest offers a wealth of historic sites, museums, parks, and theaters. Why not take your rental car in Budapest and cruise along the city's foremost attractions like the Castle Hill of the iconic Royal Palace, National Gallery, Hunyadi Garden, and other famous points of interest. Top it all off with a visit to The Parliament Building for an architectural highlight.
