Explore the Children’s railway in Budapest
Ever thought of visiting Budapest easily? Well, you can think of visiting and exploring the Budapest through railways? You are lucky enough to do so.
In the green hills above Budapest, a train line runs between stations buried deep in the woodland. It’s not the rail fastest service in the world, but it’s one of the cutest. The rail is run by children, not any guards.
The Children’s Railway that connects the most beautiful excursion spots of the Buda Hills is a unique attraction of Budapest. Its peculiarity is that schoolchildren fill in different positions around and aboard the trains.
The train chuffs along for 11 kilometres through the woods and over the hills and takes between 40 to 50 minutes.
The railway line runs from Széchenyi-hegy to Hűvösvölgy, touching Normafa, Csillebércet, János-hegy and Szépjuhászné. The lookout points, forest playgrounds, places of pilgrimage and attractions of the Buda Hills lie close to the railway stations, making the Children’s Railway the ideal means of a great outing.
The railway doesn’t operate on Mondays, from September until April.
