The buildings and statues of Budapest will repeatedly put you in a daydream.

Since I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Budapest last week, I thought it would be fun to share a selection of my citytrip highlights. Feel free to add your own tips in the comments!


The Danube river divides Budapest in two parts: Buda and Pest. Tourists usually book their stay in the Pest-side. But I highly recommend going over the bridge to visit some places in Buda. You’ll love the authentic vibes and hilly landscape.

Fisherman’s bastion

Another reason why you shouldn’t skip the “Buda-side” is Fisherman’s bastion. First of all, the terrace will give you another panoramic view over Budapest. And it kinda looks like the logo of the Walt Disney films, if you use your imagination. 🙂


You’ll get an amazing view of all the iconic buildings when you go up the Gellértberg! It’s even better at night, when the city is beautifully lit. If you don’t like to hike or you hurt yourself (like I did), take bus 27. It will take you all the way up in no time.

Heroes’ square

Heroes’ square is famous for its statues of important national leaders. This square is definitely worth a visit. Especially when the sun is out (it makes the statues stand out even better).

Food <3

Budapest has so much food to offer. I was overeating myself in order get a taste of everything during the short period I was there. Therefore, I made a list of food hotspots that everybody should try to visit when in Budapest:

A la maison grand

  • Breakfast/Brunch:

  • Snacks:

One of the oldest pastry shops: Ruszwurm

  • Hot chocolate (not your average cup of chocolate goodness, but a creamier variant – I loved it!):

New York Café
La Mimosa

  • Bars:

My friend and I went to an Icebar where we got our drinks served in ice cups. Afterwards we went to Budapest Oceanbeach to enjoy an indoor beach. It was an awesome combination of two opposites.

We had the best time in Budapest, and I hope you will too! 🙂
