Explore Budapest by Bicycle With The Updated Map


Budapest is an incredibly bike-friendly city, making it an ideal destination for cyclists and a great way for visitors to experience the Hungarian capital. With an extensive network of bike paths, dedicated cycling lanes, and relatively flat terrain, getting around Budapest on two wheels is easy, affordable, and eco-friendly.

To help navigate the city’s cycling infrastructure, the Budapest Transport Center (BKK) has released an updated bicycle map that is available for free at BKK customer service centers while supplies last. The map can also be downloaded as a PDF from their website at

Don’t fret that you will miss the chance to glide through the city on wheels even if you didn’t bring a bike. With BKK’s Mol Bubi map you will be able to locate a public bike-sharing docking station in seconds.

One of the best ways to explore Budapest by bicycle is along the Danube riverfront. A scenic bike path runs for miles along both the Buda and Pest sides of the river, connecting attractions like the Parliament Building, Chain Bridge, Buda Castle and more. Stop along the way to take photos, grab a coffee, or just admire the iconic river views.

If you are still not sure where to start, BKK also published a collection of maps showing where a 15 minutes long bike ride might take you within the city. The starting points are the main transportation hubs of the city, so you can reach them easily any time.

You changed your mind during the ride, and might need some help with recalculating? No problem, BKK has got your back with the handy BudapestGO route planner app and website to map out bike-friendly routes around the city. This handy tool allows you to enter your start and end points and get turn-by-turn directions that prioritize bike paths and low-traffic streets.

In addition to sightseeing, cycling is also an efficient and cost-effective way for visitors to get around Budapest’s neighborhoods. Bike racks and parking areas are available across the city. Many of the shorter journeys, like riding to restaurants, shops or your accommodations, can be done quickly by bike.

So whether you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to tour Budapest’s top sights or just want to experience the city like a local, don’t miss the opportunity to explore this bicycle-friendly European capital on two wheels. Grab a map, download the app, and start pedaling!
