A girls trip to Budapest

We didn’t have a lot to study for university at the end of April. So, together with Emily, Vicki, and Sarah, I went on a short girls‘ trip to the East. While first, we couldn’t decide on a destination, we decided to go to Budapest, as none of us had been there before. And Budapest is not only close to Vienna, but maybe the most important thing when you’re traveling on a student’s budget: it’s cheap.

On April 21, we took the train from the central station in Vienna to Budapest-Keleti, which took about 2.5 hours. First, we checked in at our Airbnb right next to the parliament before heading to the city center. As we arrived early, we still had the whole day to explore the city and saw most of the attractions already during the first day. In the evening, we then made dinner and had some glasses of wine at our Airbnb. But since we all were quite tired, we went to bed earlier.

The next day we wanted to go for breakfast at a cafe nearby. But as that place was too crowded, we went to Amber’s French Bakery instead. Afterward, we strolled through the city again and saw some more sights. Are you wondering what to see and where to eat in Budapest? Make sure to check out my travel guide the Hungarian capital.

As it was Saturday evening, after having dinner, we decided to go out and check out the nightlife in Budapest. First, we went to the biggest club in Budapest, which was everything than what we were looking for. So we took a taxi to Szimpla Kert. And if you have been there yourself before, you know what I mean when I say I’ve never seen this kind of a club anywhere else before. It’s an old building, filled with shabby furniture and other curious things, but still a great place to spend your evening there.

On our last day, we had to check out already in the morning. However, the landlord of our Airbnb offered us to store our bags at a hostel owned by her friend while we were still in town. Before going there, we planned to have breakfast at a café nearby. Yet, when we got there, the place was closed due to construction. And again, we had to find another breakfast place. So, we went directly to the hostel, and although they didn’t know anything about us being allowed to store our luggage there, in the end, they allowed us to do so. Therefore, and since we were already super hungry anyways, we skipped breakfast and had lunch at the hostel’s restaurant instead. And after lunch, it was about time to head to the train station and go back to Vienna again, where we arrived just in time 2.5 hours later.
