Fogaskerekű vasút

The Cogwheel Railway (Fogaskerekű), or tram line number 60, is among Budapest’s unique historic public transport options. The line first opened in 1874, and its red carriages, today a nostalgic sight amid the Buda scenery, have been transporting passengers ever since. It runs from Városmajor park up to Széchenyi Hill, through Svábhegy. You only need an ordinary ticket or pass to ride it, and it provides easy access to popular attractions such as Normafa and the Children’s Railway – or you can simply sit back and enjoy the beautiful views of the Buda Hills.
