The best way to explore the city is on foot. You will only able to see all the great intricacies of the city’s architecture, the city’s history, art and the city’s secrets if you really get up on your two feet and start walking your way into the city. If you’re just looking at the city through the windows of your car then you won’t be able to see its real beauty.
There are some walking tours that come in themes. You can choose one that you are more interested in or better yet you try all of them. One of these is the Jewish Heritage tour. In this walking tour you get to appreciate Budapest’s Jewish district as you get to see the amazing monuments there and you will learn all about its history. Among the places of interest that you will be visiting are the Jewish Musuem, Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park, Dohány Street Synagogue and the Holocaust Cemetery.
Another type of walking tour available in Budapest is the Inner City Tour. Here you will explore the beautiful spots in the V. district in Pest.
