11.5 hours to kill in Budapest, what do you suggest?

by warrug

But keeping in mind that i am not really interested in walking around museums or doing any kind of tour.
I want to just walk around interesting areas with art galleries, nice cafes, trendy shops etc.
Perhaps there is a great photography exhibition.
I want to take it easy and not have to be too much of a tourist.
Can anyone suggest anything? ill be there begining of November.

thank you

11 1/2 hours is a l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ng time to kill. OK you´ve done this and you´ve done that and you still have time left over and your feet are tired. So do what I do in such circumstances .... jump on the first tram that comes along, take it to the end station and then return with the same one or take another one instead. Get yourself lost purposely and enjoy finding your way back again - discovering things that aren´t in any guide book in the process. BUT BE CAREFUL ....... that´s how I met my wife in Slovakia!

Not the train, in this case. Imo. Plenty to do in the city itself.

Get on a tram and go to its terminus and back if you wish. Tram 2 runs along the Pest side of the Danube, with very good views.

Are you coming from the airport into Budapest? If so, allow around 45 minutes > 1 hour each way, more if you are travelling at busy times.

Once in Pest (Buda is on the opposite bank of the Danube) just wander round, maybe tram or Metro-hopping, enjoying the Art Deco architecture, stopping at cafes for a ber and/or coffee, people-watching. Pop into anything you pass which interests you. Maybe get the tram or bus over to Buda, which is more historical and more tourist-focused. I prefer Pest for wandering, personally.

The Jewish quarter and Andrassy are both in Pest.

There is 2 places I like in Budapest, is the Fisherman Bastion on the Buda side, and relaxing in outdoor cafe along the Danube (will be nicer if you can watch the sunset there). I was once there in Duna Corso restaurant, they have life nice music to accompany your daydreaming after meals, and looking at the castle across the river...heaven! :-p
Once you get to the Danube river side, you can cross the szecheny bridge. easy walk to the Fisherman Bastion. It's an old version of the town. You can have Parliament viem from there. Nice to take some pics as well

For the both only you can do it slowly and have relaxing 11 hours there..:-)
Enjoyyour trip!!

Right, I usually ride the trams when I'm tired of wandering around. You can ride trams 4 or 6 along the Grand Circle Boulevard, tram 2 along the Danube in Pest or bus 15 (115 on weekends) to zigzag around Downtown Pest. Bus 16 will take you from Pest to Buda via Castle District. And don't forget the Millennium Underground Railway (metro M1) under Andrassy Boulevard. And by tram 61 you can go out to the greenbelt of Buda if you wish.

Travel Tips for Budapest

Hill of kings is the best...

by batto

Hill of kings is the best place in Budapest where you can spend your time in this town. A lot of people, a lot of museums, monuments, galleries and restauranst are realy pretty. Nice girls and sight from Buda to Pest, with all that bridges, Danube and chapels from the other side of the river.

The Parliament building

by codrutz

The Parliament building, with its prime location on the riverbank as point of reference. It's a huge building - when it was built in 1904, the bank had to be reinforced to support the 268 metres (879ft) long building which houses 700 rooms. It's magnificent dome tops a 27 metre (88ft) high hall which is used for state occasions. The dome itself is visible from around the city. A guided tour will take in the Congress Hall, Assembly Hall and Delegation Hall of this seat of government.

The Jewish District Budapest

by budapest8

Head back to Rumbach utca and proceed down that street. Take a right onto Király utca, which forms the northern border of the historic Jewish district. At Király u. 13, head through the long series of:
Connected courtyards........
These courtyards emerge onto Dob utca, back in the heart of the Jewish district. This kind of complex -- residential buildings connected by a series of courtyards -- is typical of the Jewish district. As you can readily see, these courtyards are in extremely poor condition, dirty and run-down with graffiti-covered walls and abandoned apartments, though the appearance in recent years of several flashy retail shops may presage a general improvement.
Take a Break--Frohlich Cukrászda, Dob u. 22, is the only functioning kosher cukrászda (sweet shop) left in the district. Here, you can purchase pastries, rolls, or ice cream. (Be aware that the shop closes for 2 weeks at the end of Aug.)
Half a block to the left off Dob utca on Kazinczy utca, at no. 41, is the:
Kosher Salami Workshop (Szalámi és Kolbászáru üzem).
Salami, famous throughout Hungary, is handmade here with ancient machinery. If you make a purchase, be sure to admire the equally ancient cash register in the corner. The sign outside directing you to the entrance is deceptive; simply enter via the doorway in front of you. Open Monday through Thursday from 8am to 4pm, Friday from 8am to 1pm.
Back on Kazinczy u., no. 29 is the Orthodox Kazinczy Synagogue
Built in 1913 and still active, this synagogue is being slowly and beautifully restored. It has a well-maintained and lively courtyard in its center. There are a number of apartments in which members of the Orthodox community live. While hundreds of travelers visit the Dohány each day, far fewer make the trip here.
Go all the way through the courtyard, emerge onto Dob utca, turn right, and head into Klauzál tér This is the district's largest square and its historic center. A dusty park and renovated playground fill the interior of the square.

Pack for a Hungarian Winter

by illumina

Budapest in January was absolutely FREEZING! It was the coldest place we encountered in the trip across the continent, the temperatures were consistently below zero. If you're going to be there during winter, take jumpers, a warm coat, scarf, hat, gloves, the works!

There's a park on the Buda...

by RodeKill69

There's a park on the Buda side of the city that's more a less a mountain with a huge statue of a woman. I'd definitley recommend a hike up there. Very picturesque with views of the city, river, and beyond.
