While being a bustling metropolis, Budapest's charm can be appreciated in the many parks, botanical gardens and undisturbed natural areas that make the city so lovable and livable. You can discover some of the best locations to learn about plant-life, explore the woods or have a spontaneous picnic in the sun.

The “Füvészkert” botanical garden is home to some 8,000 varieties of plant life, some of them dating back to the age of the dinosaurs. Get a tour or try some of the seasonal fruits. All-year round, you can learn about the plant life of any season.


Budai Arborétum is a former vineyard, now it is one of the richest preserves in the city. While it is a protected area, it is also one of learning, future gardeners landscape designers and winemakers practice their craft here. A large vibrant area with plenty to see, great fun for the entire family.


Although a bit farther out, the Soroksár Botanical Garden is still just a half-hour ride from the city center, and is worth the trip. The 60-hectare undisturbed area is inviting you for an adventure, since you might get to see rabbits, foxes, deers, or even turtles.


If you want to join the many Budapesters who take to the parks when the sun comes out, you have plenty of options to choose from. The park of Szabadság tér next to the Hungarian National Bank , or the Szent István park and playground on the Danube shore are just some of the locations where you can get close to nature and relax in the sun, throw a frisbee around or have a picnic.
