Peter Folk - Financial Controller | Kempinski Hotel Corvinus BudapestMy Budapest tip:
The Most Spectacular Tram Ride in Europe

I’ll let you in on a secret: to discover the world-famous sights Budapest has to offer, the best way to experience the must-sees is by taking public transport; namely, tram No. 2. This signature yellow vehicle chugs along the Danube on the Pest bank and its route showcases thrilling views of historical and architectural gems. I get off at the tram at the magically lace-like parliament building and head south, enjoying the scenery of the river, the grandiose bridges and the Royal Castle. I get off at the Eötvös tér stop and walk on the picturesque Danube promenade, where Budapest’s buzz quiets and slows. I would continue my ride to the iconic Great Market Hall (Vásárcsarnok), which is the largest indoor market in Budapest. Simply put, this is foodie heaven and a fabulous landmark! By all means, savour “lángos” on the first floor. You know the saying, “it’s so good they do it twice”? It definitely applies to this experience; ride No. 2 by day and by night.
