If you’re doing a lot of sightseeing in the Hungarian capital, you might be tempted to buy a Budapest Card to save money.
For 7500Ft (48hr - 24.5 EUR) or 8900Ft (72hr - 29.2 EUR), it covers travel in most of the city, entry to over sixty museums, and affords discounts of up to 50% in some shops and restaurants as well as on some sightseeing programmes and cultural and folklore events.
The Budapest card is available from most of the tourist offices, hotels, central metro stations and at the airport, and comes with a booklet explaining where it can be used.
Note that it’s not valid for the Airport Shuttle minibus, the funicular that goes up to the castle or for tours of Parliament, but as most museums in Budapest now charge admission, it can represent good value.
