3-hour Budapest City Walking Tour:
Your tour begins at the Absolute Tour Center, located on Lázár Street in central Budapest. After greeting your guide, you’ll launch into your walking tour with a visit to the Hungarian State Opera House. From here, ride the metro to City Park and marvel at the UNESCO-listed Heroes Square, home to the iconic Seven Chieftains of the Magyars statues.
Visit the city park and then to capture photographs of Vajdahunyad Castle and Szechenyi Spa, Europe’s largest thermal spa.
After retuning to the city by metro, you’ll emerge to the sight of St. Stephen’s Basillica, a neo-classical landmark topped by skyscraping spires. Revitalize with a hot drink and two traditional Hungarian pastries and then, sated, amble along cobbled streets to the river bank.
Walk parallel to the Danube Promenade for beautiful river views, snap a photo of the famous Chain Bridge, and make your final stop in the Castle District at Fisherman’s Bastion for panoramic city vistas.
From here, you’ll have two hours of free time before your next tour commences.
