Rail Holidays in Hungary

F rom the rolling hills of the Danube Valley to the shores of Lake Balaton, from the elegant beauty of Budapest to the culture hub of Pécs, Hungary has an intoxicating mix of attractions, many of which are barely touched by foreign tourism. There’s a good rail network to get around and it’s a fun journey from the UK by train, either with a sleeper to Vienna or via Munich with an overnight stop in a hotel.
