  • Central Market Hall

Vamhaz korut 1-3., Budapest 1093, Hungary

The name are ready reveals what this is… This is namely a covered market. But not just a covered market, because this one is located in a beautiful building. And everywhere where you come you smell delicious food. Here you also find the more traditional Hungarian food for a very reasonable price! This market hall is a combination from food stalls with some touristic shops and like a real market where you can find fresh ingredients. You can find the food stalls mainly above. It’s for sure worth to try out and taste the local food!

  • Bathhouses

When you are in Budapest you just have to got to a bathhouse. This city is known for there many bathhouses. I went to the oldest and the popular one namely; Szechenyi. But there are enough unique and beautiful bathhouses, so there is choice enough! My visited wasn’t that expensive. I payed around €13 to use all the facilities the whole day. But the price depends from the season and or it’s a day or evening visited. And a little tip don’t forget your own towels and flip flops.

  • Fisherman’s bastion

Szentharomsag ter, Budapest 1014, Hungary

The fisherman’s bastion is one of the most beautiful buildings I saw in Budapest! This is worth the visited! From the bastion you got a beautiful view over Pest. But the bastion itself is also a real beauty and a stunning building. During the winter you can visit a part of the bastion for free, but during the peak season you have to pay for your visited. But you must visited this fairy tale building for sure!

  • Matthias Church

2 Szentháromság tér, H-1014 Budapest

Just across the fisherman’s bastion you find the Matthias church. You can admire the outside for free. 😉 But to enter the church you have to pay. If you love churches than you must visited the inside, because this is beautiful restored! I found the inside pretty, but I loved the outside more because of the unique and special architecture.

  • Chain bridge

Over the Danube

This stunning bridge connect Buda and Pest with each other. You got a lot of other bridges but there is not another one in Budapest that can equal the chain bridge. It’s an impressive bridge where you as foot passenger safely are separated from the cars. So perfect to just take a moment and enjoy the magical view!

  • Buda castle

Szent Gyorgy ter, Budapest 1014, Hungary

Buda castle is already beautiful to see from the Pest side. It’s an impressive building. There are museums inside, I didn’t visit them. But what I did was discovering everything from Buda castle, it’s a real discovery with her and there some stunning lookout point over Pest. There is much to discover in Buda castle and this is perfect to combined with a visited to the fisherman’s bastion.

  • St. Stephen’s Basilica

Szent Istvan ter 1 Pest, Budapest 1051, Hungary

The basilica is beautiful from the inside but also the inside is stunning! The inside is impressive thanks to the much golden leaf details. You can also go all the way up for a panorama view above Pest! The entree from is basilica is a free gift, but 200HUF is recommended. That is not much to entree this basilica!

  • Gelarto rosa

Szent Istvan ter 3, Budapest 1051, Hungary

And… just near the St. Stephen’s Basilica is gelarto rose located. And here you can eat the best ice cream ever! That is not everything… Because they scoop the ice cream in a rose. The result is just to pretty! The price from the ice cream is for sure not much. And there is enough choice. You got special flavours like white chocolate lavender, sesame seed, coconut,… But there are enough normal flavours like strawberry, chocolate, vanilla. So gelarto rose is for sure worth it!

2nd hand clothing stores

Something that I saw a lot in Budapest where second hand clothing stores. And it’s worth it to bring a little visited to a second hand store! Because you can do for sure some good deals. And who knows you will see some unique and beautiful pieces! My favorite second hands store was cream. There I bought a pretty warm fluffy jacket.

These are for sure the must do’s for when you are in Budapest! Oh, and keep an eye on my blog… Because next week there will come an article online about that I got scammed in Budapest. And the week after that I will share some tips so that your stay in this city will be amazing!

  1. Boedapest lijkt me echt supergaaf heb een keer een vakantie daar afgezegd ziek was dus moet ik echt eens opnieuw plannen

    1. Ooh, zo jammer! Maar in de toekomst moet je het zeker eens opnieuw plannen.
      Want Boedapest is echt de moeite!

  2. Wat een leuk artikel! 🙂 Ik ben nog nooit in Boedapest geweest, maar de stad staat al jaren op de wishlist. Een vriendin van mij heeft er onlangs een half jaar gewoond en toen kreeg ik echt de kriebels. Al die mooie foto’s, volgens mij is het gewoon een heerlijke stad. En dan die ijsjes: ik krijg er spontaan trek van.

  3. Ik vind Boedapest een geweldige stad! Ben er vorig jaar zomer nog geweest (voor de 5e keer..) en stiekem wil ik wel weer terug.
