Don’t Waste Time Queuing for Your Ticket While on Holiday in Budapest

I made the same mistake a couple of times and would like to warn you not to do it: Don’t try buying your international train ticket at Keleti train station. You usually wait there for hours. Today there were 103 (hundred and three) travellers in front of me in the line. Unbelievable.

If you are already at Keleti, take the trolley bus no. 76 till Ferdinánd híd (Izabella utca) (7th stops) then take a short walk to Nyugati train station.

At Nyugati there is usually hardly anyone waiting at the international ticket office.
