  • This is a very nice park to cycle! Make sure you rent a bike somewhere and then cycle to this place to take in the greeneries and round the lake view! Cycling in budapest is a must do! very good experience indeed
  • Very big park right next to Heroes'square. Nice place to relax or to have a picnic. You can visit the Vajdahunyad castle or the Szechenyi thermal bath.
  • My day isn't complete without a couple of laps around Városliget. It's a great park, loved by locals and visitors alike. Just a few minutes walk from Oktogon, or of course take the metro to Mexikoi station. It will take you right there. There always seems to be a festival of some sort on in the park. Today it hosted 3 events simultaneously, with ease - the Budapest Half Marathon, The Beer Festival, and the Sürkemarha Fesztivál (the grey cattle festival :-)) Városliget and nearby Hősök tere (Heroes Square) are a must-do, while visiting Budapest.
  • A lovely large park in Budapest. Nice for a stroll, the amenities (an amazing spa, ice rink etc.) and to relax in a less bustling environment than the rest of the city.
  • I really enjoyed visiting this place during my holiday in Budapest. Although I didn't manage to see the entire park, I did manage to have a general walk along the central part and popped in to see the baths. I'd imagine that they'd be a great place to visit in summer!
