Margaret Island (Margit-Sziget) Tours

star-4
2 Reviews
Margaret Island (Margit-Sziget)
Nestled in the Danube River, Margaret Island (Margit-sziget) is an oasis in Hungary’s capital of Budapest. This verdant park is packed with attractions, including a pool, a spa, playgrounds, and a Japanese garden. When the sun is shining, locals and tourists picnic on the island’s green lawns and, in summer, listen to free concerts.

The Basics
Margaret Island was once a hunting reserve and also houses the ruins of a 13th-century Franciscan monastery and church. The island gets its name from a saint who onced lived there. Take the kids to the zoo, check out the musical fountain, and relax in the thermal pools. City sightseeing tours, hop-on hop-off bus tours, and regional tours often stop at Margaret Island; many offer optional cruises. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Margaret Island is an ideal destination for families, offering playgrounds and open space for play.
  • When the sun is shining, do as the locals do and pack a picnic for dining alfresco.
  • Discounts to shows on the island’s open-air stage are offered with the Budapest Card.

How to Get There
Margaret Island is in the Danube River, between the Margaret and Árpád bridges. You can walk to the island via the Margaret Bridge, or take the 26 bus, which runs from the Árpád híd metro station, crosses the length of Margaret Island, and terminates at the Nyugati pályaudvar station. 

When to Get There
There’s no bad time to visit Margaret Island, though the park is most enjoyable when flowers are blooming and the sun is shining, from April to October. In fall, the foliage is a draw. Weekends are the busiest time on the island.

See Top Budapest Sights from the Danube
Experience Budapest from a different perspective with a cruise on the Danube River. From the water, see the city’s historic bridges, neo-Gothic Hungarian Parliament Building, and world-renowned Buda Castle. Sightseeing cruises typically pass Margaret Island, and many offer amenities like Wi-Fi, drinks, and wine. If you want a personalized experience, you also can book a private river cruise.

Mini Statue Hunt In Budapest

Mini Statue Hunt In Budapest

This tour is a classical Budapest sightseeing program following the route of the Hungarian "guerilla" artist, Michael Kolodko's mini statues. It's a perfect program for first-time visitors because many of the statues are near to main attractions, but at the same time, it's a special experience, as others are located in the local neighborhoods. This walking tour is a real treasure hunt; while you look for the art pieces on the streets, you can admire beautiful attractions like the Chain bridge, and listen to the stories that the artist wants to tell us through his statues. The perfect combination: a bit of a general, a bit of the hidden gems.
