Budapest. Hungary

Tips from Daniel

Hungarian Formula One Grand Prix

Race Day: 2nd August 2020

The Hungarian Grand Prix will be held at the Hungaroring circuit around 30 minutes north-east of Budapest, it’s a firm favourite among F1 fans. The track’s narrowness and lack of overtaking opportunities mean the outcome of the Hungarian Grand Prix is never clear cut, and the beautiful hillside setting means you can enjoy watching Formula One racing from almost any point in the valley.

Budapest has a great atmosphere during the F1 race weekend. The Grand Prix circuit is around half an hour from the hotel, perfect for making the most of the city. The city still has a good number of Turkish baths dating back to Roman Times which are still in use today. From Castle Hill there are spectacular views over Pest and the River Danube and there are plenty of restaurants, including some on river boats, serving hearty local Hungarian cuisine with plenty of full-bodied wines to wash it down.

If you want to extend your trip, Budapest’s central location makes it a great stopping off point for a longer European trip. Contact us to organise your perfect 2019 Hungarian Grand Prix holiday!
