Holiday In Budapest

You don’t have much time to go from zero to local on your holiday in Budapest.

Spend your precious hours exploring the city’s ancient history and modern marvels, from Ottoman baths to a pinball museum (we said modern, didn’t we?). Located in central Hungary and split down the middle by the Danube River, Budapest is the beating heart of the country—and trust us, it’s a unique beat.

Ready to go from hangry to Hungary? Wrap up one of our package deals to Budapest and make a run for the airport!

Things to Do in Budapest

With a collection of storybook turrets and cobblestone courtyards, Fisherman’s Bastion doesn’t see much of the finned persuasion at all, but the river views are so stunning that it’ll make you wish you were out on a boat. From there, trade fishermen for kings at nearby Matthias Church, where Hungarian coronations have taken place for centuries—how many royals is that?

Prefer the flashing lights of pinball machines to the glitter of crown jewels? Get behind the wheel of one of lastminute.com.au’s brilliant Budapest car hire options and drive across the river to the Budapest Pinball Museum, which is exactly what it sounds like. If you think that’s fun, make a visit to Parliament while you’re in the neighbourhood. Soak the politics out of your Budapest holiday at the Turkish baths sprinkled around the city—where people have been cleaning up and chilling out in natural steamy springs since the 16th century. Is it getting hot in here?

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Find fabulous fashions on Váci Street in the Pest District, east of the Danube. Start at Vörösmarty Square—home of the amazing Christmas Markets—and keep walking south toward Vámház körút—Central Market Hall. Covered year-round, Central Market Hall is the largest one-stop-shop for street food, fresh fruits and veggies, and even more fashion. Save now on our Budapest packages and fill an extra suitcase with treasures!

From five-star restaurants to fried cheese bread vendors on the streets, Budapest will not leave you hungry. Eat your way through heaps of cafes and riverfront bistros in the city centre and around City Park. Nibble on lángos—fried dough with sour cream and cheese—or sit down to a meal of stuffed peppers and fisherman’s stew. “Top” off the meal with chimney cakes—pun totally intended!

Budapest does not disappoint in the nightlife shenanigans department, but if you really want to live it up like a local, you’ve gotta dig a little deeper. Like, archaeological digs. Throughout the city, especially in the Jewish Quarter, tuck into popular ruinpubs—slightly renovated remains of abandoned buildings. They may not be fancy, but if these walls could talk, well, they would say a lot of weird things, because who knows what they housed before they became bars?

Only minor negative was the breakfast buffet which ..."
