Budapest airport to Budapest city center: 100E vs. 200E + M3

Trying to figure out how to get to Budapest city center with public transport? I compare bus 100E vs. 200E + M3: which do I recommend? Read more on todoinbudapest.com.

One of the first blogs I wrote for To do in Budapest.com, was about how to get from Budapest Airport to Budapest city center. I write about taxis, shuttle buses, and public transport. However, when I wrote this post, the most logical way to get to Budapest’s city center with public transport, was with bus 200E and metro 3. A few months ago, a new bus was introduced: bus 100E is a bus that goes straight to and from the city center to Budapest Airport. It seems the easiest way, right? I compare the two: 100E vs. 200E + M3.

Both ways go from the airport to Deák Ferenc tér, the central square in Budapest. That’s great, because from here you can take three metrolines, a ton of buses, and several trams, on top of being able to walk practically anywhere in the city centre. Probably also your hotel! Big chance you can walk, or only have to take one metro, tram, or bus to get to your ho(s)tel.

100E vs. 200E + M3: which works best for you?

Everything you need to know before traveling to Budapest

Wat je moet weten voordat je naar Boedapest reist Wat je moet weten voordat je naar Boedapest reist Wie, wat, waar? Misschien weet je het al: Boedapest bestaat uit twee samengevoegde steden, gescheiden door de Donau. Aan de west-zijde ligt het heuvelachtige en historische Buda, aan de oost-zijde het toeristische, vlakke Pest. In Buda moet je zijn voor je heuveltraining, waanzinnige uitzichten over de stad en historische bouwwerken als de Burcht van Buda. Ik verwacht dat je in Pest de meeste tijd zult doorbrengen. Hier vind je de meeste bezienswaardigheden, musea, bars, restaurants, etc. De uitgaanswijk is Erzsébetváros, of district 7. Shoppen doe je in Váci utca of in WestEnd City Center. Bezienswaardigheden zijn verspreid over Pest. - Lees meer: 5x de mooiste uitzichten in Boedapest
