Overview

How about a travel companion that hits all the right notes? That’s the Eurail Hungary Pass. It gives you extensive first class travel on the national rail network of Hungary, with your choice of any 3, 4, 5 or 8 days of rail travel within a one-month period.

The Eurail Hungary Pass also lets you avoid the hassles of local ticket buying, fumbling with unfamiliar currency and conversion rates, and out-of-town airport locations. Yet, more than what it avoids is where it delivers.

A great place to start your Hungarian exploration is Budapest, the capital. Often cited as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, it’s home to the Buda Castle, the 13th century palace complex of the Hungarian kings. Visit the largest synagogue in Europe— and the second largest in the world — the Dohany Street Synagogue. And Hungary is home to the largest thermal water cave system in the world, with over 1,500 thermal springs. No wonder spas are everywhere; the days of public baths are still alive and well here.

How about some local flavor? First, there are the colorful locals who are sharing Hungarian rail with you. For other local flavor, move on to one of Hungary’s 1,000+ wine varieties from regions like Balaton or Tokaj, the perfect complement to its iconic goulash. Even your Eurail Hungary pass comes with appetizers, travel bonuses to use around Hungary.

The Eurail Hungary Pass. Whether you take the train from Budapest, or to one of hundreds of health and wellness spas, one thing is certain— it’s good for you.
