Cycle infrastructure in Hungary has developed dramatically in recent years, partly in response to the increasing demands of cycling tourists. Cycling is now permitted in a number of hilly and woodland regions, including national parks, but it is important to know that cyclists must keep to marked routes. Among developments in Hungary particular mention should be made of the cycle route around Lake Balaton but the Danube Bend and the Buda Hills also offer great opportunities for cycling tours for those who prefer to use their own physical strength.

Cycle Routes

The country now has more than 2,000 kilometres of cycle routes with a further 200 in Budapest.
