First day in Budapest
The route continues with a romantic walk along the banks of the Danube to the magnificent Liberty Bridge. If you cross the bridge you will reach the Gellert Hotel where you will find one of the most beautiful spas in the world.
If you want to try the experience you can book the ticket to avoid the queue or this ticket includes a relaxing massage, which will save you time by skipping the queue.
The Budapest itinerary in two days continues crossing the bridge again to enter the Central Market, full of stalls selling fresh produce, where you can eat or opt for a nearby restaurant like the Borbirosag or the Rustico.
The afternoon route starts with a stroll along Vaci Utca Street, the most commercial street in the city until you reach Vorosmarty Square, where you can take advantage of a delicious cake at Budapest’s most famous café, the Gerbeaud Pastry Shop.
After regaining your strength you will cross the Chain Bridge, one of the most essential places to visit in Budapest, to see the best sunset from the Fisherman’s Bastion.
To climb the Buda hill you can use the funicular railway that will take you to Buda Castle, with magnificent views of the city. Once there we recommend you to walk through the adjacent alleys around the castle, with much charm, until you find the beautiful Church of Matías.
Next to the church is the Fishermen’s Bastion, from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the city as the sun sets and the city is illuminated. It is certainly one of the best things to do in Budapest.
At night you can walk down to the lower part of Buda to have dinner in one of its good restaurants such as Marvelosa or Meat Boutique, and then finish the first day of Budapest in two days you only have to cross the illuminated Chain Bridge and dream of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
What to see in Budapest in two days
The second day of Budapest in 2 days starts with a walk through the Jewish quarter in the early morning. This neighborhood has a tragic history because during the Nazi occupation it became a ghetto where the Jews lived badly confined.
This area is bordered by Dohany, Karoly, Kiraly and Kertesz Streets, where the Dohány Synagogue, the second largest synagogue in the world, opens at 10 am and we recommend you visit it. Just behind the synagogue is the Tree of Life, a metal willow with the names of many of the Holocaust victims you can’t miss either.
A good option to learn more about the history of the neighborhood is to book this tour with a Spanish speaking guide.
The two-day Budapest route continues on foot to the neo-classical St. Stephen’s Basilica and the largest church in Budapest. Inside, in the San Diestro chapel, you can see a relic of the mummified hand of St. Stephen. Keep in mind that they open at 10:00 in the morning.
