In order to arrive at Szentendre, first, one needs to travel to Budapest. If you come by car, I think the best way is to look at the route what google maps or a GPS Navi proposes.

If you come by public transportation, most probably you will arrive at one of the airports (Ferihegy 1, 2a or 2b) of Budapest, or one of the train stations (almost certainly at Budapest - Keleti which means Budapest East ).

The Rosinante Country Inn gave us the contacts of a taxi driver who works usually with them. He has a minibus for 8 passengers, and a normal car for 4 passengers. So please form groups, then write to Máté (kovacs@pst.ifi.lmu.de) or call him (on +49 1577 518 5739). He will arrange the rides.

If you do not take a taxi for the whole way, you will need to travel from Batthyány tér to Szentendre with the HÉV. The HÉV is a commuter rail similar to the S-Bahn.

Very shortly, here is how one can get to the Rosinante inn.

  • If you came by plane:
    • You can take the ride directly arranged by Máté.
    • From the airport take a cab. Go to Batthyány tér. From here take the HÉV to Szentendre. From the Szentendre HÉV station take another Taxi to the Rosinante Inn.
    • You can also travel using only public transportation. But this may take like 2 hours. (This is not so recommended.)
  • If you came by train:
    • You can also take the ride arranged by Máté.
    • You can get into a cab, travel to Batthyány tér. From here take the HÉV to Szentendre. From the Szentendre HÉV station take another Taxi to the Rosinante Inn.
    • From the train station take the subway to Batthyány tér. From here go to Szentendre with the HÉV. From the Szentendre HÉV station take a cab to the Rosinante Inn.
    • From the Szentendre HÉV station you can also walk up north to the little ferry and cross the Danube with it. But I don't know how much you have to wait for it, could be an hour or so. But it goes regularly many times a day.

A bit longer description about how to do all of this:

If you decide to travel across Budapest using a mixture of taxi rides and public transportation, during Sunday that should not be a problem at all. Well, completely without cab takes a whole lot. The routes from the airports/train stations to Szentendre are not difficult. There is even a route planner site of the Budapest Transportation Company (BKV) which speaks English and German as well. If you input from Ferihegy airport to Szentendre, then it outputs pretty useful things.

If you decide to use the BKV, please look for places for buying tickets. Each time you step on a bus, tram or metro line, you should validate a ticket on the corresponding machines. Unfortunately, every time one switches, one needs to click a ticket. The most important thing is to get to Batthyányi tér. From here leaves a commuter rail similar to the S-Bahn called HÉV towards Szentendre. If you came by train, then from Budapest - Keleti you only need to get on the red metro line M2 which brings you there.

From the airport to Batthyány tér: The simplest is to get into a cab of the Zónataxi taxi company. They are pretty much optimized on rides to and from the airport, and have fixed prices accordingly.

With public transportation from the airport to Batthyány tér: From the airports there is a bus line called 200E. There are some buses of 200E on which you can buy tickets, but not all of them. In other lines it is not the case. At the airport terminals there are ticket selling machines, but they only eat coins. It is also possible to buy tickets at newspaper kiosks, if they are open.

200E brings you to the final stop of the subway line M3 which is the blue line. The name of the station is Kőbánya-Kispest. With M3 you should go to Deák Ferenc tér, and there switch to M2, which is the red line. This red line brings you to Batthyány tér.

At Batthyány tér, you should by a ticket for the HÉV until Szentendre. This is not the regular BKV line ticket, because this train goes out of Budapest. If you get off the HÉV at Szentendre, you can jump into a cab at the station, and go to the Rosinante Country Inn. The other possibility is to walk up north to the ferry, and chross the Danube with it. It is possible however that one has to wait a whole lot for the little boat. At the other side you are 300m southwards from the Inn.
