The Sziget Festival is held in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Budapest, by name and districts, is divided by the River Danube, and the 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with the flat Pest district. The city has an abundance of hot springs which people seek sometimes to cure whatever ails them, but mainly people visit them to have fun & relax a little, you can choose from a choice of Turkish-era, Art Nouveau and modern bathhouses.
Budapest has some of the most sophisticated cooking styles in Europe, and they don’t just cook Goulash! Budapest has a good reputation for its food and also it’s excellent wines, so why not sample some of these while you are there.
Meet us There
Get in a clown car with all your friends.
Car pool + google maps and we are there! Hitch-hiking not recommended but kudos to your enthusiasm to party with us.
Once you’re at the hostel, we’ll supply transport to the festival. You must find your own way back as we all have different endurance levels when it comes to extreme partying.
Bus leaves at 3pm from Retox (half an hour trip), and every half an hour after 3 until no one is left. No return transport, so party til’ your hearts desire!
Fly to Budapest
Once you are at the airport you can choose from several ways to travel to the centre:
Train service from Ferihegy Train Station (accessible by bus 200E during the day, and by bus 900 at night from Liszt Ferenc Airport Terminal 2, the trip is 5 stops, around 10 minutes) to Western Train Station (Nyugati Pályaudvar): this is the simplest way to get to the city centre.
You can get to the city center by the M3 (blue) metro line or trams 4 and 6 from the train station. The train journey takes less than half an hour (cc. 22-25 minutes).
Bus 200E takes you from Terminal 2 to the M3 (blue) metro terminal called Kőbánya-Kispest Metro Station. The bus operates from 4.00 till 23.00 daily. The journey is about 30 minutes. From there you can travel on by metro.
