Self-guided ride with our bicycles to the scenic village of Szentendre, ca. 25km along the Danube. If you follow our recommended route you will leave from Downtown to Margarete Island, enjoy the nature of the car-free island and pass Old-Buda and the Roman Beach.
It is up to you to decide on speed, stops, and enjoying the landscape. In summer you can even make a bathing stop at Lupa-Lake, the "sea" of Budapest. Ride on perfect bicycle ways to Szentendre and enjoy the Mediterranean flair at the river.
Plenty to see, enjoyable ride for leisure riders & families or sportsmen & women. Finish the tour with a relaxing boat ride on the Danube back to Budapest (option: "return by boat"). Or take the regional train back (option: "return by train") - several trains per hour gives full flexibility.
Please note: this is a self-guided tour, you are your own guide and have to find the way and handle technical issues yourself. If you want full comfort consider booking a private guided tour.

Originally Serb & Croat settlement, therefore with a huge Serb church. The best is to park the bicycles somewhere at the river and make a walk through the pedestrian area.
