Overview

Hungary not on your List? It should be.

The national railway company of Hungary is known as the Hungarian State Railways (MÁV). Hungary has over 7,000 km of railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in Hungary can be booked in advance. International trains connect Hungary with neighbouring countries such as Austria and Slovakia. Book train tickets to visit main cities of Hungary by train. Hungarian cities including Budapest, Pecs and Miskloc are all served by trains.

Cityscape

The Hungary train network is well developed and is the best way to admire the country, all lines go through Budapest so the capital is a good place to start. Here you can enjoy museums, shops, buildings and people watching among the city delights.

Landscape

Take a boat trip along the romantic Danube River and see the fishermen and birdwatchers enjoying their hobby. Cycling and horse riding is also popular throughout the country but particularly on the flat lands either side of the Tisza River.

Take Home

Miskolc, Győr and Pécs have shopping malls and the MOM Park in Budapest features enough shops to last well beyond a day. The country is known for its sweet tooth and the shops in Hungary’s Nyugati train station should satisfy your craving.

Eat & Drink

Hungarians like to spice up their hearty peasant cuisine with paprika. The country is well known for its inimitable Goulash soup. Or try the Balatoni fogas – pike-perch from Lake Balaton – for a taste sensation. And while you’re in Hungary you must try the sweet Tokaji wines, a delicious traditional infusion, or the Riesling and Zweigelt varieties.

New Perspective

Take a train trip to Szilvásvárad in Northeastern Hungary, where you’ll find the snow-white Lipizzaner horses waiting for you.

    "I r4ecently travelled from Budapest to Vienna with my dad on holiday. We were looking for a quick, convenient, reasonably priced way of travelling. Railjet provided us with this option. The railway station was in walking distance, the ride very smooth and comfortable. The food was a little pricy on-board so it is better to bring your own snacks. Overall great experience! "

    "I truly enjoyed the privacy and comfort of the cabin. It was like from the movies. I will recommend. The hardest part was arriving. I was not at the main train station (near my hotel as I had planned) but people within the station were very helpful in getting me to where I needed to be. "

    "we were very happy with the cleaniness and friendliness of the staffs. very scenic journey along the way to Milano from Bern. Good experience. "

  • Very beautiful trip |
    "It was a beautiful trip - traveling in first class in a compartment with one other couple from Germany - we had a very nice conversation along the way and the scenery was absolutely stunning - it was clear and sunny the entire trip - except when it got later and then it was clear and you could see the stars. Just beautiful. Only complaint was that the food car was not adequately staffed, did not have enough food, and the service was so slow that we eventually left - after the staff told us they could not take any more orders. It was a good thing we did bring a little lunch - however, we could not even get a cup of coffee they were so overwhelmed. Maybe compartment service for the people traveling in first class - or additional staff....not sure. "

    "Trains are very comfortable no question about it. But there are very few direct trains from the starting point like Roma Termini or any other station. We traveled to Aosta valley with 3 to 4 changes.For people like us who are touching 60 yrs is bit difficult to change so many stations with luggage . But running time and the comforts are excellent. We will definitely travel again in Europe by Rail Europe. Regards, Joydeep Ghosal/ Devjani Ghosal "
