MÁV, the train operators of Hungary, have special ticket prices from Budapest to locations around Europe. I got a ticket from Budapest to Munich for €29.
The tickets aren’t apparent to find on their website. I only knew about the ticket offer from billboards in Budapest, and there is no indication of the special price tickets online. I had to get a local buy the ticket on my behalf before I arrived.
Tickets available from Budapest include:
€29: Venice, Munich
€39: Baden-Baden, Berlin, Hannover, Hamburg, Zurich, Strasbourg
€42: Frankfurt, Mainz, Bonn
[Budapest to Munich by train.]
The train from Budapest to Munich is operated by ÖBB of Austria, of which the train passes though for most of the way.
[Power outlet on the train – good work day!]
The MÁV website is not the most English user-friendly, so the best way to find similar deals to this is to use Voyages-SNCF. This is the French railway website, and it offers cheap train ticket bookings across Europe.
If you are planning to travel to multiple destinations across Europe then you might be better off to get a Eurail Pass. Read this Eurail travel guide to decide if a pass is right for you.
I took a trip in 2012 between Vienna and Ljubljana and it took roughly 40 EUR out of my pockets.
from which website can I find “€39: Baden-Baden, Berlin, Hannover, Hamburg, Zurich, Strasbourg” ?
