Favourite Running Routes in Budapest
When I first visited Budapest in 2011 and ran around Margit sziget, I remarked that “if I lived here, I’d be so fit because I’d run every day”. Now that I do live here, I can’t say I totally kept my word! But this city is certainly a great place for running.
It’s not always easy to find new routes in a city. Crossing roads, waiting at lights, navigating underpasses etc. all interrupt the flow and count against city-running when compared to countryside and trails.
Nevertheless, here I present a few of my favourite running routes in Budapest, which all provide a decent amount of interrupted running and interesting scenery. Whatever distance you’re looking for – from a few kilometers to a marathon route – you can find something here!
