Hiking after Craft Conference 2017 in Budapest

If you like nature, nice views, and would like to get away from the city after you've enjoyed the Craft Conference, then you are invited to this short hike in the hills on the outskirts of Budapest.

Date: April 29, 2017. from 10:00 till about 12:00.

Assuming the weather permits.


We leave at 10:00 from the crossing of Nagybányai út and Törökvészi út at the last stop of bus #11 marked as Végállomás Mini ABC.

You can easily get there from Batthyány tér (square), a major transportation hub in Buda by taking bus #11.

Another place where you can hop on bus #11 is the Mechwart tér which is on Margit krt. where trams 4 and 6 pass frequently.

It leaves ever 10 minutes or so and the ride takes about 20 minutes. See the map.

The route

We will visit the Árpád kilátó (viewpoint) and the Guckler Károly kilátó on Hármashatár-hegy which is about 200 m higher than our starting point. On the way we might visit the Hármashatárhegyi repülőtér (airport).

The approximate route can be seen on this map:

We end our hike where the Szépvölgyi dűlő (vineyard) meets the Szépvölgyi út (street). From there we take bus #65 to Daubner cukrászda, which is probably the best Patisserie in the city. That will help us topup the calories lost during the hike.

What to bring

Good shoes that you can walk in a lot. Enough battery in your phone to last the trip. An apple or comparable fruit. One liter of water. Binoculars.


There are no costs involved except the bus tickets you buy for yourself and whatever you spend in the Patisserie...


It would be important to notify me if you are planning to join us. Send an e-mail to Gábor Szabó szabgab@gmail.com letting me know if you are coming and how many other guests are you bringing with you. Just so I have an idea how many people to expect.

I'll also send you my mobile number in case you need last minute communication.
