Parliament Building

The Parliament building on the shores of the Danube. You can spend hours just looking at it in different light, it is so splendid.

Ghetto Wall - Jewish Quarter

If the gate is open at No. 15, walk in and go all the way back. There, you find a 30m section of the old Jewish Ghetto Wall rebuilt in 2010.

Jewish Synagogue

The Jewish Synagogue is the largest in Europe and fantastic, but so are the exterior exhibits you can see from outside the fence, including the Holocaust Tree of Life Memorial in Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park.

The Castle Museum

The Castle Museum is fascinating because you can walk through and down into restored palace rooms (restoration still in process in some places!) dating back 2,000 years in some cases.

Fisherman's Bastion

The architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage Site is stunning, and there are plazas and small parks to sit and enjoy a bit too. Sights include Matthias Church and Fountain, the Fishermen’s Bastion…

Hospital in the Rock Museum

We were skeptical. Sounded so touristy, although the caves in the Budapest area are the stuff of legends. We were wrong. Do not miss taking this tour!

Ervin Szabo Central Library

Really, we are telling you to go to a library. This one – filled with people doing library things, like studying and finding books – is the former Wenckheim Palace and spectacular inside.

Sandwiches, bowls, fries, knishes, dumplings, and more – all more than you can imagine in their creativity and spices and all dairy and pork free without a microwave in site.

Hunyadi Restaurant and Café

Castle Hill is a beautiful sight, but when you want to escape the press of tourists, just a short jaunt below the hill on the Buda side sits the Hunyadi.

Spinoza Cafe

A tiny café in the Jewish Quarter definitely caters to post-all-nighters with breakfast all day, but really it’s for everyone in search of a filling, homemade, extremely reasonable breakfast – superb granola, fresh fruit, eggs off the griddle, super rich coffee.

You will absolutely love the Gerlōzy Hotel on the Pest side of Budapest.  Rooms are basic but the hotel restaurant is notably spectacular and well known.

Art'otel

If your inclination is more toward fancy business hotel with a view, you should consider the Art’otel on the Buda side of the river — many rooms have a spectacular view of Parliament — and where we stayed for one night upon finishing our ExperiencePlus! bike tour along the Danube River to Budapest.
