Many thanks!

Let’s get started!

00:00 Driver Introduction to the Tuk Tuk Travel Tour in Budapest

We introduce the Tuk Tuk and the Tuk Tuk Driver gives us the first instructions on the route and sights of Budapest. 

00:49 Budapest City Center

While Castle Hill dominates the Buda district, there are several interesting places and sights on the other side of the Danube. 

00:52 The Budapest Eye – Giant Ferries Wheel

As the BUDAPEST EYE, the Ferris wheel with its total height of 55 meters opens up new and unexpected views of the Hungarian capital.

The ride in the BUDAPEST EYE is suitable for young and old – it connects generations. The semi-enclosed gondola design gives our passengers a very high sense of security, which allows them to enjoy the unique view without any worries. Sightseeing trips for families with children or romantic flights of fancy for couples in love. Each visitor experiences the ride in the BUDAPEST EYE in their own way.

 

05:26 Budapest – The  University of Law

The Faculty of Law is one of the oldest faculties of the University. It was established in 1667 ‘to remit deficiencies in Hungarian legal education’.

 

06:00 Great Overview of Budapest City Development of the area! Must See!

Based on a stone map on a Wall the Tuk Tuk Guide will present the whole history of Budapest. Very interesting and informative to see how Budapest developed during the last centuries. I.e. There was big flooding….

 

10:27 Liberty Bridge – Crossing the Danube River in Budapest

The Liberty Bridge is one of the nine road bridges over the Danube in the Hungarian capital of Budapest. It connects Buda’s Szent Gellért tér with Pest’s Small Square and Fövám tér at the Corvinus University of Budapest and the Great Market Hall

 

12:40 St. Gellert Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool

Part of the famous Hotel Gellért in Buda, the Gellért Thermal Baths and Swimming Pool (also known as the Gellért Baths or in Hungarian as the Gellért fürdő) is a bath complex in Budapest, Hungary.

 

14:10 Citadel – Gellert Hill – a fantastic view of Budapest

The Citadella is the fortification located upon the top of Gellért Hill in Budapest, Hungary. Citadella is the Hungarian word for Citadel, a kind of fortress. The word is exclusively used by other languages to refer to the Gellért Hill citadel which occupies a place that held strategic importance in Budapest’s military history.

The Liberty Statue or Freedom Statue (Hungarian: Szabadság-szobor) is a monument on the Gellért Hill in Budapest, Hungary. It commemorates those who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of Hungary.

 

16:01 Arrival at the Fisherman’s Bastion in Buda

The Halászbástya or Fisherman’s Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek.

 

17:35 Matthias Church and walking tour Fisherman’s Bastion

Matthias Church (Hungarian: Mátyás-templom) is a Roman Catholic church located in Budapest, Hungary, in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion at the heart of Buda’s Castle District. According to church tradition, it was originally built in Romanesque style in 1015, although no archaeological remains exist.

 

22:26 Margret Bridge – Crossing the Danube River in Budapest

Margaret Bridge is a three-way bridge in Budapest, Hungary, connecting Buda and Pest across the Danube and linking Margaret Island to the banks. It is the second-northernmost and second-oldest public bridge in Budapest.

 

23:50 Columbo Statue – Inspector Falk Statue (Hidden Gem!)

With this bronze, Budapest commemorated the well-known actor Peter Falk after his death in 2011. His faithful friend the aptly named “Dog” is also faithfully at his side here. He stands there with the typical gestures that are familiar from the episodes of his character Columbo from the popular crime series of the 1970s: on Falk Miksa utca, at the corner of Szent István korut. Gorgeous 😃

 

25:20 Hungarian Parliament Building

The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, pronounced), which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation, also known as the Parliament of Budapest after its location, is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination in Budapest.

 

30:50 Liberty Square

Many tourist pages and books do not write so much about this square, though it is one of the most beautiful places for some quietness, peace, and a cup of coffee during the spring and summer. What makes this square so special are the buildings surrounding it, and the size of the park that is in the middle of the square.

Facing Liberty Square you can find several buildings; Hungarian National Bank, the American Embassy, the Inter-Europe Bank, and also the Hungarian State Television (MTV). In the middle of Liberty Square, you can find the last monument from communism left at its original place in Budapest (the rest has been moved to the Statue Park, just outside the city). At the monument, you can see a text giving praise and thanks to the Communist troops for saving the Hungarians from the Germans (the communists “ordered” the statue, the Hungarians had to pay).

34:01 Short view of the St. Stephen’s Basilica

St. Stephen’s Basilica is the biggest church in Budapest. And with its height of 314 feet, it’s also the highest building in Budapest (next to the Hungarian Parliament Building). And lucky you: you can climb the basilica and enjoy a gorgeous view. Which is one of the reasons to pay a visit to this church.

 

34:05 Back at the Kempinski Budapest Hotel – End of the Tuk Tuk Tour
