Budapest’s original and most renowned biking tour is an innovative, entertaining, easy and relaxing way to see mostly all the city sights in a more intimate way through our grand roads and bike pathways. An excellent way to first get orientated with the city and its history before heading out on your own to explore.
Our tour begins on Andrassy Boulevard and at the Opera house (outside) and then a ride up to the Heroes’ square and city park along the tree lined boulevard. Here we learn about the Hungarian history and culture before biking through the park to the Vajdahunyad castle (outside) complex built to display the Hungarian architecture forms for the 1896 world Expo and Szechenyi bath house (peek inside if open).
Next we ride back to the city center down to the St. Stephen’s Basilica named after the first Hungarian king (peek inside if open). After visiting the beautiful church and square and we ride to Liberty sq. for a picture of the last Soviet remembrance then on to the Parliament (outside), the second largest in Europe with its huge neo-gothic façade. Next we ride across the might Danube river over the first and oldest bridge, the Chain bridge.
Now at the foot of the Buda Castle we’ll explain the visible sights and stories surrounding them before our leisurely ride up the old road to the base of the Royal Palace (outside). A break here gives us the UNESCO World Heritage lookout panorama view where you can capture all the best views of the city. After this break we ride through the old castle district streets to the Matthias Church (outside) and Fisherman’s Bastion (outside).
Next is the reward we all road up for, the ride down! On the back road of the castle we coast down in comfort into the green park of the Taban and then back over to the Pest side slowly making our way back to the office to end the tour. Bike tour guests are also offered discounted rentals for those who wish to keep on exploring the city and maybe Margit Island on their own
