View Dates & Prices

Budapest has long been considered as one of the most magnificent cities in Europe and it is easy to see why. From the glorious architecture of Hungary’s parliament building to the beautiful Crown Bridge and the gothic castle of Buda, this city gets more spectacular at every turn. Budapest became one after the unification of the cities Buda and Pest on opposite sides of the river in 1873 and has since become one of the most important cities in the European Union. 

During your stay you will embark on a city tour, taking you up Castle Hill, which offers stunning views of Pest and its bridges. You will visit Buda Castle and learn more about the great men and women that Budapest has given to the world. There will also be plenty of time to relax and discover the city at your own pace. Join us on this magnificent 3-night break and discover all of the delights that the ‘Pearl of the Danube has to offer.

Holiday highlights

Erkel Theatre

Take some time to marvel at the opulence of Hungary’s second opera house. The theatre was closed between June 2007 and March 2013, when it reopened after renovations and the opera is enjoying a resurgence in popularity in Budapest ever since. 

Castle Hill

The premier destination for many visitors, it contains many of Budapest's most important monuments and museums. There are great views of Pest across the river Danube. The walled area consists of the Old Town and the Royal Palace.

City Park

The entrance to City Park is Heroes' Square, which has the nation's most solemn monument - an empty coffin representing one of the unknown insurgents from the 1956 Uprising. To the north is the Museum of Fine Arts, which houses the city's outstanding foreign works, while to the south is the ornate Palace of Art.

Royal Palace

The Royal Palace has been burned, bombed, razed, rebuilt and redesigned at least six times over the past seven centuries. It's now an 18th and early 20th century amalgam reconstructed after the last war. Take a walk through Ferdinand Gate or under Mace Tower to the Turkish cemetery, or relax in the palace gardens behind the Budapest History museum.
