Visit the dreamlike capital of Hungary without having to fly. This is the simple, fast option for getting to Budapest by train.

Budapest is one of Europe's great capitals and there's an almost dreamlike quality as you explore its wide boulevards, lined with Art Nouveau buildings and cafes. If you catch a morning train from London, you'll arrive in Paris in time to connect with the modern double decker TGV to Munich, before boarding the EuroNight overnight sleeper service to Budapest. You arrive in Budapest by 9.00 am the following morning. So, you can easily reach Budapest without having to fly.


1.Go to the DEUTSCHE BAHN website (bahn.de) and enter Paris (Gare De L'Est) and Munich in the respective boxes. You'll need to catch the 15.19 train to Munich. The return leaves Munich at 10.28, with a change at Stuttgart and arrives in Paris at 16.40.

2.Remain on the DEUTSCHE BAHN site and book your return overnight ticket from Munich to Budapest. Look for option EN with zero changes.

3.Go to the EUROSTAR site and book your connecting tickets for the return trip to Paris. Take the 10.25 from St.Pancras to allow enough time to connect with the Munich train at Gare De L'Est. Also, remember to book the return journey from Paris for the day after you leave Budapest.

You could stay overnight in Paris on the return if you'd like a more leisurely end to your holiday.

You can also try the RAIL EUROPE site to book tickets.
