Biking in Budapest

Budapest is a great city for bike lovers. There are many cycling paths and bike rentals services at very affordable prices.

Budapest is a very interesting city for bike lovers; the Hungarian capital offers real adventures across nature, culture, and tradition with its 300 km of biking paths dotted all over the city and its surroundings.

The city itself, just like the rest of Hungary, is pretty flat featuring some gently rolling hills. In order to bike in Budapest you must be at least 12 years old and you must respect the road signs.

The best times of the year to bike around Budapest are late spring and the months between June and October, considering that the weather is very enjoyable. There are different bike itineraries in Hungary, and each one of them offers different emotions on two wheels.

Bike rental services are available on Margaret Island, at the City Park as well as at many other points of interest around the city. Don’t forget to bring an identity document. There is also the possibility to join group bicycle tours.

Public bike sharing

It is also possible to use public bikes by using the MOL Bubi bike sharing system: just like many other European cities, Budapest offers available bikes for shared use.

Users can access the service by registering to the system; renting time goes from 30 minutes up to 24 hours. Payment can be issued by credit card. Bikes can be returned to one of the many pick up – drop off sites around the city, which are strategically scattered all over: train station, city parks as well as the most popular monuments.
