Nature in all its dimensions

Budapest is the city of hot springs, caves, islands, rivers, forests, hills and valleys. The chillout hotspot of the town, Margaret Island, sits in the middle of the Danube.

There's plenty to discover: apart from medieval ruins, there are two outdoor pool complexes, thermal hotels, a little zoo, as well as an ultramodern musical fountain. Hiking trails, the cog railway, a chairlift or the Children's Railway, which is operated by children, lead you deep into the Buda hills. Here, the longest cave system of the country can be explored on guided tours. The highest point of Budapest is on top of the Elisabeth lookout tower.
