Travel from Budapest to Vienna

by Pele_cool_boy

Dear all,

Can somebody please tell me what's the best way to travel to Vienna from beautiful Budapest? Is it by bus or by train? (The 'best' means the cheapest) :)
What do you recommend? What is the cheapest option?

I will need to go to Vienna around 18:00 or 19:00h.

Thank you very very much!
Köszönöm! Vielen Dank!

"Normally" the bus is cheaper for a SINGLE (one way) ticket. But a RETURN (two way) rail ticket could be even cheaper.

The website of the bus company is www.volanbusz.hu. There you can book your journey. It says that it cost "from 2900 HUF one way" (10.79 euro).
The train costs from 19 euro one way (check http://tinyurl.com/mmthst).

If you can purchase train ticket three day in advance, then it will cost 13 euro (special ticket called "Fortuna"). Regular one way BP-Wien cost 24 euro.
You can as well take a look at http://europetrainsguide.com/Countries/Hungary/Hungary-MAV.html

Thank you people.

What I also wanted to ask is - Where do the Volanbusz buses depart from? Where is that place? Is there something like 'Budapest main bus station' or not? Thanks in advance.

Re: Travel from Budapest to Vienna

by Mikebond

The station from where the buses to Vienna leave is reported to be "BUDAPEST, Népliget, Aut. áll."
More info about the stations of Volanbusz can be found here: http://www.volanbusz.hu/en/about/ourstations

Budapest, Nepliget is located at Nepliget metro station (metro M3). As you exit the metro station, turn left to reach the bus station (which is clearly signposted and impossible to miss).

Beside the above mentioned options, there is another bus service between Budapest and Vienna called Orangeways. However, they only have one bus a day, that leaves Budapest at 7:00 and arrives in Vienna at 10:20, so it's probably too early for you, but worth to know about it. (From Vienna they depart at 19:00 back to Budapest.)

These buses also leave from Népliget, but NOT from the bus terminal, but from next to the football stadium on the other side of the road.

A one-way ticket costs 3490 HUF (13 EUR), a return 5700 HUF (21 EUR). Their main advantage is that these prices are valid for all tickets, while Volánbusz and MÁV (train company) only gives a limited amount of tickets at discounted prices, and the rest is more expensive.

So if you can book well in advance, then Volánbusz or the train can be a better option, but if you can't book that early, and it doesn't matter that you arrive at Vienna already at 10:20, you should consider Orangeways as well.

You can book tickets for Orangeways or Volánbusz on their websites:

However, you can only book a train ticket at the station in the ticket offices.

Travel Tips for Budapest

Visit several towns on the Danube

by budapest8

Visit several towns on the Danube bend; like Szentendre,Vac,Estergom, Visagrad,Nagymaros,Dunabogdany & Szob.
Eat Porkolt which is the Hungarian name for GULYAS:
Visit Rudas Baths early one morning and then stroll across the Szabadsag Bridge to the market in Vamhaz Krt. next to the Economics University. Eat something at one of the buffets upstairs or walk up to Raday utca and eat in the Berliner.Good Hungarian food. Walk then across Kalvin Ter up Muzeum Krt past the National Museum and have a cappucinno coffee in the Muzeum Szucrazsda (sorry can't spell)with something sweet.We have 6 months of good weather here in Hungary so from April to October you can expect quite good weather, well there are those days it seems to rain and blow and endless cloudy skies, but on the whole, not bad. Take a walk around the huge cemetry on Fiumei ut, just go to Keleti Railway station and take a right.off Rakoczi ut. For the best panorama pics, then walk up Gellert Hill next to the Gellert Hotel and over the top by the citadella...WOW! see the view.Small cafe in the Citadella Hotel if your peckish.I have more pictures here at this site...

The Zoo Well, no matter...

by chrissyalex

The Zoo Well, no matter where I go...if there is a zoo...I check it out if I have the time. Not only were there animals...but also some buildings with different types of botany also. There was a building that had just Bonsai trees. I also saw a nice seal show. I had a good time at the zoo. See the travelogue.

Extra bag (soft) to expand capacity after buying lots of souvenirs, books and posters. You go with one bag with the soft one inside and come back with two! Rain coat, umbrella, plastic hat...whatever you want to protect from rain if it happens. Lots! Good walking shoes...

Protestant (Calvinist) church

by german_eagle

The protestant (Calvinist) church is due to its location (right on the bank of the Danube on the Buda side) and its colourful roof a landmark of Budapest. Not that it is spectacular architecture in some way, but it is a dominating part of the panorama seen from the Pest side.

The church was built 1893-96 by architect Samu Pecz whose monument is right next to the church. Since he was an admirer of medieval architecture (the church was built in a mix of neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic styles) he is depicted in medieval clothing.
