Cogwheel Railway

The Cogwheel Railway (Fogaskerekű) is among the more unique public transportation options in Budapest. The line first opened in 1874, so its red carriages are a somewhat nostalgic sight amongst the Buda scenery. It runs as tramline 60 from Városmajor Park up to Széchenyi Hill, through the Svábhegy area. You will need an ordinary single ticket or transport pass to ride the Cogwheel Railway, and it provides easy access to popular attractions such as Normafa or the Children’s Railway – or you can simply just sit back and enjoy its beautiful views of the Buda Hills!
