Bus or Train from Vienna to Budapest

by devilchui

Hi, I will travel from Vienna to Budapest in July. I am choosing between Eurolines or train. I know that there is a 7:00a.m. bus, but I can't read the language, I don't know how much it is. For train I saw that there is a train at 08:25a.m. (Euronight, no need to change).

Does anyone know the fare for taking the bus and the fare of the train I posted?

IS the bus more convenient for my lugagges?

Thanks for your reply.

Re: Bus or Train from Vienna to Budapest

This is the Austrian railway website in English:

http://www.oebb.at/en/index.jsp

It will give you train times, details and fares (and may allow online booking, if you choose).

There are several direct trains through the day. I would always choose train as being more convenient, and more comfortable than bus. You will only have to lift your luggage onto the train, store it and lift it off again..there are overhead racks and luggage storage within each carriage.

The Austrian Eurolines website has an English option:

http://www.eurolines.at/en/home/

and, when you start the booking process (to find times and fares) you will see a small UK flag to the top left. Click that and you will get the English version. Just make up the required details (your email etc) to see fares....you can rebook using your proper details later, if you want.

There are several buses per day (5, I think) and fares vary according to which you choose. They start at 23.50 euro one-way.

Bus will be cheaper than train, but take longer.

Travel Tips for Budapest

The Royal Palace...

by cobrioc

The Royal Palace sits on top of Castle Hill overlooking the Danube on the Buda side of Budapest.
Inside is the Budapest History Museum.

The entire Castle Hills area part of the UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site, which includes the panorama over both sides of the Danube from Margaret Island to Gellert Hill. The Royal Palace, which dominates the southern skyline of the Castle Distric,shares a similar history to that of the Mattyas Church, namely one of upheaval and reconsruction.

The Royal Palace now the houses the Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest History Museum and the National Szechenyi Library.

Firewalls

by MedioLatino

Budapest has lots of firewalls and I'm not talking about IT security :)

Due to some building-demolitions (there was just no way to rebuild them, or at least that's what the new owner of the land is saying) you can see empty pieces of land even in the central districts of the city (less and less, that's true...new buildings are growing out from nowhere).

But even on a firewall you can see how though and life-loving is the Hungarian nation :)

Pronouncing Hungarian :-(

by DesertRat

Hungarian is essentially impossible; fortunately you can generally find someone who speaks at least some German. English is NOT that widely spoken, and French is almost non-existent. Inevitably, though, one does have to be able to pronounce a little of it, if for no other reason than to say street names... Here's a very brief breakdown of how the phonetic system works:

s = sh
sz = s
cs = ch
zs = zh (Think Zsa-Zsa Gabor)
gy = j as in "judge"
c = ts as in "cats"
ö = as in German (roughly like the "or" in "worm"
ü = as in German (round your lips and try to say "ee"
You'll also see those same vowels with what look like slanted quotation marks above them. These are pronounced more or less the same way but held out much longer (time-wise).

Remember, too, that all Hungarian words are stressed on the first syllable.

Phrase Book

by acemj

If you don't bring an actuall book, at least print out some useful phrases. I've found that when I carry a phrase book, I often don't use it because when you're actually talking to someone you don't have time to refer to the book. They're good to study on the plane, but you might want to carry a small page with just the basic survival phrases.

Check the internet site... www.tanchaz.hu

by Hilde_K

Check the internet site www.tanchaz.hu
you will find every location where you can go to, to listen to some nice Hungarian music.
And you can dance too, if you like!!
and if you don't know how... they will learn you how to dance the Hungarian dances!!
You won't be the only one who will do this for the first time... :-)
