Its my all time favourite tram line what goes along the Danube. Take a ride after the sun goes down and you can enjoy the view of the city at night. Go to the window and prepare your phones and cameras to take the best shots from the bridges glowing in their night light!

This ride is quite short, still you see a lot of interesting building, places, bridges on this ride. Since the ride is short, take the ride back and forth, so you get to see both sides of the tram

I used the tram a few times from Szechenyi ter to the Northern terminal. Not a huge distance but gives a flavour of the northern part of the city, passing right by the Parliament building. I guess you probably would get a better view on a boat trip, but I'd suggest this is not a bad second best at a... More

This is a cheap tourist activity, but a sight-seeing must in Budapest! A ride on the Line 2 Tram in Budapest takes you past some of the most historical sites in Budapest. Traveling parallel to the Danube on the Pest side of the river, you’ll be treated to views on the Buda side, including Castle Hill, St. Mattias Church, the... More

We took it in the middle of the morning, not crowded at all so enjoyable. We had good views along the Danube of the different monuments and places.

I love this tram so much. I personally do not mind that the trams are not modern. I actually like this about the whole experience. The view is just breathtaking. It goes around the Danube River and you see Budapest from a totally different perspective. The only downside that I could mention is that this tram is full of people... More

We took this tram several times during our stay in Budapest and found it a great way to see the river as well as major sights along the way.

I decided to take a ride in tram no. 2 as I have the 24 housrs pass. I rode tram no. from the Kossuth Lajos stop (near the Parliament). The tram is old but clean. It passed by some major attractions such as Szechenyi Bridge. Other than that, I do not find anything spectacular.

Not sure what everyone is raving about here. The tram follows the river from Rákóczi Bridge to Margaret Bridge, which is quite a short route - only about 7 kilometers or 4.3 miles. If you are not pressed for time and able to move enjoy a nice walk, stop for a cup of coffee along the way or a glass... More

This tram line is, I believe, part of the UNESCO World Heritage site in Budapest - a well justified recognition of a delightful run along one bank of the Danube from an industrial / residential outskirts are, right into the heart of the city at Elizabeth Bridge. With views across the river to the Gellert monument, Buda Castle and the... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
