District II Pesthidegkút - Buda side Attractions in Budapest

District II is located just behind the Castle Hill, and is a beautiful hilly area full of green. While Pest was going through huge developments in the late 18th century, Buda including District II were left relatively untouched. Today it is a residential area with beautiful family homes and countless outdoor activity possibilities.

Our top picks are two natural beauties of the district; the Pál-völgyi cave and the Szemlo-hegyi cave where regular caving tours are held by trained guides. In third and fourth place are yet again two natural assets, but this time aquatic ones: the Kings Thermal Bath and Szent Lukács Thermal Bath.

The Buda Hills are perfect terrain for horse riding, and what makes it so great is that it's horse riding in the capital of Hungary a short leap from the inner city. As a result our fifth pick is the Petnehazy Horse Riding Ranch.

District II is not just about nature; there are several cultural venues in the area, the best of which are our next four picks: The Palace of Wonders (the name sais it all), The Millenáris, a cultural hotspot for exhibitions as well as stage shows, the Tomb of Gül Baba and the Foundry Museum of Hungarian Science and Technology.

Our last pick is Rózsadomb, said to be the most beautiful residential neighborhood of Budapest.
