Budapest Tourist Bus Lines and Stops

Budapest’s sightseeing bus tour offers visitors several routes with over 20 stops. Explore the city’s most beautiful landmarks and neighbourhoods on board an open-top double-decker bus. While you admire the panoramic views, learn about the capital’s history and monuments with your individual headset with pre-recorded commentary in English or 24 other languages.

When making your booking, you'll be able to choose between 1, 2, or 3 day tickets. Some of the most popular stops include St Stephen’s Basilica, Heroes’ Square, Margaret Island and the Hungarian Parliament.

How it works

Tickets are valid for 1, 2 or 3 consecutive days from the first time you use it. For example, if you purchase a 2-day ticket and activate it on Monday at 3 pm, it’ll be valid until Wednesday at 3 pm. During its validity, you can hop on and off as many times as you wish.

Although when making the reservation you will be asked for a start date, you can use the service over the twelve months following the start date. When you have made your reservation, we'll send you a voucher you must hand in on the first bus you get on.

Danube River Cruise and guided visit

Your ticket for the tourist bus also includes a 1 hour cruise on the Danube River. Departing from pier 6, this boat trip will allow you to enjoy breathtaking views of the Parliament, the Chain Bridge and the Buda Castle. You'll also learn lots of interesting facts about the monuments thanks to the boat's audio guide.

You can also go on a guided visit, in English, around Budapest's old quarter. The guided visit lasts 1 hour, departs from the Basilica stop and finishes at Chain Bridge.
