Budapest Card, the practical travel companion
If you are visiting the capital, Budapest, you’ll find the Budapest Card an invaluable travel companion. Not only will it help you plan how to use your time (both activity and relaxing time) it will save you money too! But beware, while there are several different cards aimed at tourists, the Budapest Card is the city’s only official card and it is the only one accepted at all the places detailed on our information page.
The beauty of the Budapest Card is its practicality for all sorts of visits people make to the city. There are two different cards to choose from – 24-hour and 72-hour cards, all offering loads of ideas for things to see and do, and places to eat; and all include huge discounts on entry - or free entry - to many museums and attractions.
You might start the day at the Gellért Bath then see an exciting exhibition at the Fine Arts Museum; you could lunch at a busy city centre restaurant, and then end the day with an unforgettable cruise on the River Danube.
In addition to the museums and baths, several other interesting venues are waiting for you: the Hospital in the Rock, the Labyrinth under the Castle in Buda, or the Holocaust Memorial Center – Budapest Card offers you significant discounts to these places. Would you like to discover the caves in Buda or try a ride on the pedal carriage on the Margaret Island? You are provided a wide range of opportunities, because you can choose from almost one hundred free or discounted offers (thermal baths, museums, sights, events, sightseeing tours, restaurants, etc.) in order to make the most of your Budapest Card!
Don’t spend your day sitting in traffic jams: take the Metro or a tram. You won’t even have to queue for a ticket, as the Budapest Card includes all Budapest’s public transport as well.
A Free Guide booklet is provided with your Budapest Card including all the services and a map as well.
The discounts and free services are available for an adult and a child under 6 years of age.
At Budapestinfo Points any bank card purchase has became easier and more economical as you can use your own currency instead of HUF. This development helps you to avoid the surcharges.
Budapest Card is also available online with 5% discount on the original price!
With a Budapest Card in your hand, the city is yours!
