Visiting Hungary for the First Time

Travel Forums Europe Visiting Hungary for the First Time

I'm planning a trip to Hungary summer 2012 and also want to visit Vienna and the Czech Republic. I'm willing to fly into Germany though if it's less expensive. No idea where to begin! I can fly into any of those destinations but plan to spend most time in Budapest. Any advice on most economical way to do this? Where to fly in/out, using trains between cities versus renting a car - any advice is most appreciated. FYI - I'm traveling in from Charleston, South Carolina, USA. But flights from CHS can be pricey so I can always look to other nearby hubs. Thanks so much!

Ryanair does cheap flights to Budapest. If it is too expensive to fly direct, fly to somewhere like Hamburg, Paris (Beauvais) or London (Stansted) that they fly to and use them for the last leg.

You can get a train or bus between Budapest and Vienna.
