Budapest Western Railway Station, Budapest

(3.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Even if you're not traveling by train, visit Budapest Western Railway Station and admire the original glass and iron architecture that dates back to the 19th centruy. The station, completed in 1877, was built by the same company that constructed the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Though most of the structure has been refurbished and replaced over the years, the station still has its original look. In addition to providing all the amenities a traveler needs, such as ticket offices and money exchange booths, the station also features a selection of places where you can enjoy a meal or a quick drink. Of course, from here you'll be well-connected to the rest of the city by streetcar and metro, or you can catch a taxi nearby. Put Budapest Western Railway Station into our Budapest family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • If you're pressed for time, it won't be nothing to make a detour to see the station built by Eiffel. It has nothing special and is very badly maintained. However the Mac Donald located against the station is worth to be seen!

  • Interesting if you consider the whole. Behind the old station sent a huge shopping mall, the Westin End, and then a Romanesque church at Lehel tér.

  • Went to the station to take a train to the City of Pecs. The station looks just like the ones you would see in old world war 2 movies. The only thing missing (thank goodness) was the storm troopers
