This is the most comprehensive Free Tour around Buda Castle district, the majestic area which makes Budapest worthy of its nickname—the ‘Paris of the West’. This fun and informative walk around the left bank of the Danube River offers lots of interesting historical facts, legends, picture opportunities in quaint cobblestone streets, and breathtaking panoramic views! Guided by a local expert, the group will learn about the Hungarian Royal Family while catching a glimpse of the majestic Royal Castle. The stunning palace complex suffered terrible damage during WWII, but it was perfectly restored and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The group will have the opportunity to cross the Vienna Gate, pass in front of the National Archives and enjoy the sight of the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene.

Walking around narrow fairy-tale alleys, the Free Buda Tour to explore the Castle Quarter will reach major landmarks such as the Funicular, the Fountain of King Matthias, the Holy Trinity Square, and the Old Town Hall. Travelers with a sweet tooth will make sure to stop by Ruszwurm Confectionery, a 200-year-old shop serving amazing desserts. After, travelers will explore the world-renowned Matthias Church. It was the coronation church used by Hungarian kings, it served as a mosque for the Ottoman Turks, and is now a thriving Catholic church where many Hungarians hope to celebrate their weddings. Opposite this church, travelers will find the top-rated and most iconic attraction in Budapest—Fisherman’s Bastion. From the impressive lookouts, tourists will take-in dazzling views over the Hungarian Parliament in Pest District.

On the last leg of your Introductory Free Tour to Budapest, the group will approach the white building of Sandor Palace, the official residence of Hungary’s President. If time and weather conditions allow, the group might also make an easy walk to Gellert Hill. This is a wonderful natural space overlooking the Danube and famous for its Liberty Statue, commemorating those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom and independence of the country. During this enjoyable free tour around the heart of historic Budapest, your local guide will make sure to keep everybody engaged (even children!) and will be happy to reply to any questions about the past or present of Hungary. Additionally, guests will leave with valuable advice about the best attractions in the city!
