Active Things To Do in Budapest

Below are the top 10 ways to get active in Budapest! With such a diverse landscape, the city provides a large spectrum of things to do throughout the year, so being active doesn't necessarily mean getting the sweat up at the gym.

Our number one active pick is the Buda Hills. Locals as well as tourist love to unwind and go for walks or cycle rides in the huge green hilly countryside so close to the city centre, also home to extreme sports such as our next two picks: Caving in the dripstone cave of Paul Valley and tandem paragliding with the Airborne Club. Tandem parachuting with the Millennium Parachuting Team - our fourth pick - is another extreme option.

Wakeboarding at the OMSZK Wakeboard Centre in the lovely green suburbs of Budapest is a great summer activity, while ice skating at the Jégterasz on top the West End City Centre is a great winter activity.

Our next pick - the Free Budapest Walking Tours - combine action and culture on their two and a half hour walking tours that range from general to themed walks with enthusiastic and fun local guides.

Our eighth pick is cycling, rollerblading and hitting the jumps at the Görzenál Skate Park, the largest one of its kind in Europe.

In ninth place is playing golf at the Highland Golf Club while the children are looked after and entertained by on-course babysitters.

Our last pick is swimming and diving at the Hajós Alfréd, Budapest's largest swimming complex on the leafy green Margaret Island.
