Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Central Danube, Hungary your home away from home

The Central Danube region of Hungary is a stunning natural area of wood carpeted hills in the centre of the country. The River Danube meanders through the heart of the region, weaving past the main cities of Budapest, Esztergom and Rackeve.

Things to do in Central Danube, Hungary

Any visitor to a Central Danube holiday rental must head into Budapest, if only for a day. Although the whole region is adorned with stunning monuments to years gone by, Budapest has a remarkable density of historic attractions. The covered market of Vaci Utca makes for almost essential viewing, and the great range of museums and galleries that nestle among the ancient streets provide visitors with a magnificent insight into the history, lifestyles and cultures of Central Danube. Budapest is most famous for its Opera and Theatre performances, with people flocking to Central Danube accommodation from across the globe to experience the finest of European cultures in one of Europe’s most breath taking settings.

One of the finest ways to explore the Central Danube region is from the waters of the River Danube. Taking a kayak or canoe along the river is an absolutely sublime way to travel through the region, giving you a completely unique view of the dramatic Central Danube landscapes.

The Central Danube is an area of thermal spas. There are a great range of thermal spas, with water erupting from the earth at anything from 21˚C to a scalding 76˚C. There are some 118 spa centres to choose from when staying in self catering Central Danube accommodation, from ancient Turkish Baths to cutting edge modern centres.

Places to visit on holiday in Central Danube, Hungary

Budapest is a stunning city on the banks of the River Danube, famous for both its glorious historical treasures and its vibrant festivals. Every turn reveals a new sight, especially as you walk along the banks of the River Danube. Attractions from the Academy of Music to the famous Buda Castle, the Budapest History Museum to the Art Hall draw visitors from around the world, and at night, the whole city is bought to life as the nightlife is truly exciting.

The town of Rackeve is a particularly spectacular town, best known in fishing circles due to its magnificent fishing stretches of the River Danube. The impressive stone statues and carvings that adorn Rackeve give it a timeless appearance. Europe’s largest and most impressive basilica can be seen just a few miles along the river in Eszergom too.

Visegrad is an amazing town on a bend in the River Danube, just 40km from Budapest. The town is stunningly beautiful, with ancient ochre coloured walls jutting up from the woodland carpeted hills of Central Danube. The Visegrad ruins, consisting of the ancient citadel at the top of the hill and the reconstructed Royal Palace is particularly worth exploring from Central Danube accommodation.

Our third time to visit Pat's apartment. Our most recent visit was for 8 nights, as we just cannot get enough of this beautiful apartment, and Budapest! Abris collects us each time, takes us to the door of the apartment, which saves getting buses, taxi's etc. The apartment is spotlessly clean, very warm, comfortable and so central to everywhere - from the market, underground station [Kalvin Ter], restaurants, bars, to the majestic Danube, all within waking distance from the apartment. On this most recent visit, we bought some great food at the nearby market, and cooked in some nights. There is a fantastic wine shop, fresh pasta shop, and yummy ice cream shop all within a one minute walk from the apartment! Will we return? Most definitely!
