Budapest Bike Paths

by Maragirl

Hi, does anyone know where I could find a map of the bike paths in Budapest (online or in print). Thanks!

Re: Budapest Bike Paths

by johngayton

Cycling in Budapest isn't for the faint-hearted. There are cycle paths but these are often shared with pedestrians and Budapest drivers have no respect for cyclists. There is of course Margaret Island in the city centre which is almost entirely car free and so if you are cycling for pleasure (rather than as a means of getting from A to B) that's worth a visit.

For a pretty definitive guide -

Enjoy your trip!

thanks for the info, but i've been biking around for about 3 days, and it hasn't been that bad! i've been pleasantly surprised to find quite a few bike paths around the city, and to be honest, i think it's mostly tourists that one has to bike around :)

i found some maps in the bookstore, but they are 2 years old so i was hoping to find something more up to date, and i heard that there are free ones around somewhere, so i will keep searching :)

That's something new:

I've already found a new bike path not shown on this map, but still it seems up-to-date enough.

Travel Tips for Budapest

See the famous and wonderful...

by lvdpiet

See the famous and wonderful coffeeshops. They are more like a grand cafe really.
See the palace and the marriagechapel next to it.
Feel the sense of freedom that hungarians have. The people. So free and with far less trauma of the communist times then anywere else in eastern Europe.

The Saint Elisabeth (St. Francis`s wounds) church

by 1courage

The Saint Elisabeth church was built between 1731 and 1757. It`s part of a building complex wich dates back partially to the medieval times. You find here a chloster, a hospital and a twilight home.
5 ears after the liberation of Buda from the turks (in 1686), in 1691 the muslim mosque&chloster wich layed in ruins was given to the fransican monks who started inmediatley the reconstruction. After the dismission of this order (again Joseph the 2nd) the hospital and the church came to the Elisabeth nuns who gave medical attendance to sick people. Originally the church had a much lower tower, but in the IXI. century, to make the cityscape uniform, it recieved an identical pitch ornament to those of the saint Anna`s church.
The tower of the church is still to be renovatd, but all the rest is in fantastic shape-->

The Magyars

by blint

The Hungarians speak Magyar which belongs to the Finno-Ugric languages making it very different to Indo-European
languages such as English. This makes it a very difficult language to learn as there are very few cognates (similar words). For example goodbye is
Viszontlatasra (polite), thank you is Köszönöm, Excuse me is Bocsanat, Do you speak English is Beszel angolul, which bare no resemblance to any other European language!

Saying that they say Szia pronounced more or less "seeya" to say hello and sometimes goodbye which sounds like the English "see you". I find this amusing.

Another cultural point different to the rest of Europe is that they put the surname before the first name. So Julie Blint becomes Blint Julie! Therefore take care with names whilst you're visiting this country!

Weather & clothing

by diocletianvs

Budapest is located in the middle of the Pannonian plains. July and August tend to be the warmest months. On particularly hot days, the air feels heavy in the centre of town and pollution levels are high. The weather stays warm during September and early October but gets progressively colder after that. Winters in Budapest are long and hard, with snow falls in December and January as Siberian cold fronts drift in from the east.

In late spring and summer, temperatures in Budapest can soar to almost unbearable levels. Light clothing is therefore recommended. Sometimes there are rain showers at the end of hot and humid summer days so an umbrella and jumper are advisable to be handy for the evenings. Winters are cold - bring warm clothes.

Walkabout in Budapest finding hidden gems

by budapest8

Walking down Kossut Lajos Utca towards the
Erzebet Hid (Elizabeth Bridge) on the right hand side
of the road you can find many interesting facades and
statues on the outsides of various buildings.
When you get to Ferenciak Tere you have the
Parizs Udvar (Paris Courtyard).
