Green Holidays in Hungary

The jewel of central Europe, Hungary is, quite simply, beautiful. Its grand capital, Budapest, is one of the great cities of Europe, a centre of fine art, architecture, shopping and more; outside the capital, its unique, low lying scenery unfurls like a series of oil paintings: impossibly picturesque arrangements of trees, patchwork fields, vineyards, rivers and lakes (including the huge and beautiful, mineral-rich Lake Balaton).

Despite all this, and a rich culture, history, cuisine and wine culture, the country remains for the most part, wildly under-visited - making it yours to discover.

A tour of Budapest to see all the historic sites followed by relaxing in breathtaking thermal baths and an exploration of the stunning 13th century Eger castle are just some of the great options to experience Hungary’s charms and wonders. 

Below, we list some of the best holidays in Hungary, all of which are reachable by train.
