Things to see and do with kids in Budapest

Budapest Kids Attractions

Hungary is a wonderful family destination, and Budapest is a particularly good city to explore with children. Not only does the country offer a plethora of sightseeing attractions which would appeal to people of all ages, but there are also a number of places that kids will especially enjoy. The Great Circus, complete with clowns and acrobats is internationally renowned and the Budapest Puppet Theatre should top the list of things to do in Hungary with kids even though the shows tend to be in Hungarian. The Budapest zoo is one of the oldest in Europe - it adjoins the botanical gardens and will delight the whole family. There are many lovely parks in which to enjoy games or picnics and let the little ones blow off some steam. If the weather isn't great and you need some indoor entertainment head to the Palace of Miracles for scientific games and interactive exhibitions that will excite as well as educate, or visit the Tropicarium, a spectacular aquarium in Campona shopping mall.

Budapest is a safe city and the locals are generally very hospitable, making it feel family-friendly and welcoming.
