Budapest – Vienna

Two capital cities, not really distant from each other. Two cities having many similarities and, at the same time, many differences too – both undoubtedly beautiful though. If your trip’s itinerary includes Budapest and Vienna as well, instead of a simple boring journey, you could use your time to explore some of the region lying between the two cities. See below how.

Overview

Budapest and Vienna are situated quite close to each other; it takes about 3 hours to travel between the two cities, so it’s not that far, but the journey is long enough to get bored… and there’s the hassle with the car rent/train/bus ride. But imagine that the boring and tiring transfer between the two cities could be turned into a lovely day-trip. Sounds good, right?

About half-way between the two capitals, there lies a jewellery-box, the town of Pannonhalma, hiding Hungary’s oldest abbey and monastery dating back to 996, ruled by Benedictine monks. The abbey and its surrounding is a Unesco World Heritage site, no wonder why. Beside the monastery, there is also a winery producing excellent wines and a garden with a variety of herbs and flowers, ideal for a relaxing walk. If the journey continues from Pannonhalma towards Budapest/Vienna, we stumble upon another lovely town with a really picturesque atmosphere. Here we know where to enjoy a delicious lunch followed by (if time permits it) a walk in the center of town.

What we offer

.

The capital of Hungary is truly like a treasure chest. A chest of which if you open the lid, you’ll find plenty of beautiful things. You’ll find buildings with stunning architecture, ranging from Roman through Baroque to Art Nouveau; you’ll find spots offering breath-taking panorama; you’ll find signs of another era through the Turkish-style bath-houses, and you’ll find a tangible past through the bullet-holes on buildings witnessing dark and hard times. Budapest is a paradise for explorers; let us help you to experience it in the best way possible!

You are visiting Budapest and would like to visit something also outside of the capital, but don’t really know where to go, what to do and how to get there? We organise trips to places situated just outside of Budapest, reachable within half-an-hour. These are half-day programs, ideal for taking a break from the capital’s busy flow, and experience a bit different reality as well. Browse our programs, and whether you opt for the Baroque castle tour or for another program, we’ll do our best to make it an unforgettable experience.

Budapest occupies less than 1% of Hungary’s territory; meaning that if you don’t leave the capital, you’re experiencing just a tiny part of the country. If you wish to discover the secret world outside the capital’s border, choose our day-trips, and we’ll take you to places and make you live adventures, you’d never come across without the help of a local. Come and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Hungarian countryside, accompanied by a glass of wine!
