THINGS TO DO WITH KIDS IN BUDAPEST: THE RAILWAY PARK

If you’re coming to Budapest with kids, or if you're a railway enthusiast, then you simply can’t miss a visit to the Hungarian Railway Park.

Featuring an original roundhouse from 1911, the park has 50 steam engines (12 operational and all restored including one built in 1870) that are guaranteed to make the day of any “Thomas and Friends” or “Chuggington fan”!

Two miniature steam and diesel locomotives circle around the park, which features miniature tracks and railway signals just like in the real world.
From time to time, even the big engines are brought back to life for the “Nostalgia Rides” leaving from Nyugati Station to the Park. On St. Nicholas’ Day be sure to board the “Santa Express” to grant your kids an unforgettable delight.
You will also experience what was like to operate a real steam engine or travel in a car converted for rails. A hand-cart, a turntable for trains and a horse tram are also there for you to try them out as well as a powerful engine simulator.

The park also organizes a wealth of interesting events that change every week. Therefore it’s always a good idea to check out the latest news on their website.
The only downside? Because of the harsh Hungarian winter the park is only open from April until November (with special openings for Christmas and selected events!).
