About the station

This guide to using Budapest-Nyugati station has been updated due its relatively new status as a key international station.

Budapest-Nyugati train station is now an international terminal because the EC daytime express trains between Budapest and Germany, Poland, Slovakia and The Czech Republic have all been switched from Budapest-Keleti station - and now arrive at and depart from Budapest-Nyugati.

This is welcome news for three reasons:

(1) Nyugati train station is closer to the city centre and the tourist heart of Budapest than Keleti station.

(2) Nyugati is in a smarter area of town than Keleti, it's actually a great area in which to stay as a base for exploring the city.

(3) Around 20 mins have been cut from the journey times of the EC trains - they used to have to travel in a semi-circle around Budapest in order to reach Keleti station.

Although the transfer of these trains to Nyugati isn't such good news if your final destination is convenient for Lines M2 and M4 of the Budapest Metro - these lines serve Keleti, but Nyugati is on Line M3.
