Travel Guide to Budapest
Budapest has excellent international rail connections. There are a dozen direct trains each day from Vienna, seven from Prague, five from Munich, two from Zurich and one from Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden.
Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD), commonly known as Ferihegy, is the main international airport serving Budapest. BUD is located 16 km (10 miles) southeast of Budapest city centre. It is a hub for Smartwings Hungary, Wizz Air and Ryanair.
Airport to city center
Fotaxi is the official taxi service of Budapest airport. Their booths are located at the exits from terminals 2A and 2B. All cars have POS devices which means that they accept credit cards. Taxis from the airport work for fixed transport prices in the range of 25 EUR. Another option is the Airport Shuttle Minibus, that takes you to your destination conveniently for a somewhat cheaper, fixed price. Follow the signs at the airport to their office to buy a ticket.
You can also consider taking a Bolt ride (check Bolt app) and share the ride with other colleagues.
Public transport provides easy access to the city center from Budapest Airport. The bus stops are located on the arrivals level, between the two terminals.
There are 2 lines connecting the airport and the center of Budapest: 100E and 200E. There are also night buses which you can combine in order to get to the city center.
