#1 of 11 in Transportation in Hungary
Admire the highest peak in the city as you ride the train along Gyermekvasút. Built after World War II, the railway has children do various types of jobs, from selling tickets to traffic management, while under the supervision of adult railway workers. The train runs through the wooded scenery of the Buda hills and stops seven places along the way. The museum on site displays relics from the Communist era and explains how the railway came to fruition. Note that the railway's hours vary based on season, so check the website for an up-to-date timetable before you visit.
