Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Budapest, Hungary

Welcome to Budapest, known as the Pearl of the Danube and an absolute gem of Eastern Europe! If you are visiting for the first time, our two introduction walks will take you to some of the most essential sights of the city's two halves: Buda and Pest. Make sure to also explore the Margaret Island – a perfect destination for those who enjoy beautiful sights in a car-free, oxygen-rich environment. Of all the city's neighborhoods, the Jewish Quarter tends to leave the biggest impression on visitors.

In all, we have prepared 11 self-guided walks for you to explore Budapest, which cover everything from charming neighborhoods to scenes along the Danube Esplanade, unique "ruin pubs" and shopping destinations. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

How it works: Download the app "GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities" from Apple App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile phone or tablet. Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next. The app works offline, so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
