Embrace the Brotherhood: 6 top things to do in Budapest with your mates

If you are planning a birthday or stag do abroad, or just a long weekend away with your mates, you can't go wrong with Budapest. It's brimming with group-friendly activities that come with adrenaline, fun, and fair prices and guarantee a good time for everyone. From driving a vintage car to soaking in 'beer' at Széchenyi Baths, we have rounded up some ideas to make your trip memorable.

1/6

Fly at the Skyward wind tunnel

Let's jump straight in with an adrenaline-filled activity, Skyward. It is an artificial wind tunnel where you can experience weightlessness and the sensation of flying under controlled conditions. A machine generates wind speeds of nearly 200 kilometres per hour, equivalent to the maximum free fall speed of a person jumping out of an aeroplane. We tried it, and trust us when we say the experience causes immediate euphoria and happiness. If you become hooked on this thrilling sport, you can also learn tricks with the help of the professionally trained team, who are always ready to assist.

Drive things

If you'd like to try driving rather extreme vehicles,  StagHeaven can help you organise a drive of a Ferrari/Lamborghini or a ride in a real tank. Both will result in a high-power and adrenaline-pumping adventure. If you'd like to take it slower than a racing car while still being extra, look no further than Rent-A-Trabant. You can hop into a cool vintage car and go sightseeing like never before.

3/6

Roll the ball at the Indoor MiniGolf Budapest

If you prefer not-so-crazy adventures but still pine after a friendly contest, head to the Indoor MiniGolf in downtown Budapest. Here, a 3D blacklight mini golf awaits on an 18-hole adventure course, where you can perfect your aiming skills through 3 spectacular worlds. Whether the theme is horror, galaxy or magic forest is your call, but rest assured that delicious cocktails are served in all the rooms.

Soak in beer at Széchenyi Baths

If you are a beer lover, BeerSpa will be a dream come true. The name might be a bit misleading though: they don’t just pour 1,000 litres of bottled beer into the wooden tubs but fill them with a mix of 36°C hot water, which is rich in minerals and infused with natural extracts used to brew beer (malts, hops, brewer’s yeast, and barley). Currently available at Széchenyi Baths and Lukács Baths, you can plunge in and enjoy mental and physical relaxation while your special bath water removes harmful substances from the body and eases fatigue, stress, and hangovers. They refill the tubs after each guest, so you are guaranteed to be soaking in your very own concoction. Meanwhile, throughout the experience, you can pour and enjoy an unlimited amount of Czech beer on tap within reach of the tub.

Drink, play pool, and party

If you are looking to enjoy the nightlife in Budapest, head to the party district. Here, you can easily set off on a pub crawl or find one spot to settle down. Either way, Stifler Ház (Stifler House) is a good place to start because it has everything: it is easy to find (located next to the busy Gozsdu Udvar (Gozsdu Courtyard) and boasts 4 dance floors and a variety of music styles. Also, it is open every day and also has 10 pool tables, a pinball machine, and a foosball table. It almost only comes as a bonus that admission is free all night, and you can even catch a match or a great concert. (x)

Stop for a bite

Surely enough, you will get super hungry after all these activities, not to mention that some fatty meat and heavy dough is the best way to help your body survive the next day. If you are pining after a burger, try Simon's Burger or Bamba Marha. If you fancy pizza, go for Pizza Manufaktúra or IGEN. And if you want to leave your options open, head for one of the best food courts in the city.
