Public transport in Budapest, how to get to the competition venues


As there are no allocated parking spaces for spectators in the immediate vicinity of the venues, we recommend using public transport. On days of the competitions, public transport lines serving competition venues operate more frequently.

Spectators arriving by car can leave their vehicles in the allocated parking spaces located in various areas of the city. From the car parks, they can get to the venues by shuttle bus and boat services. The allocated parking lots, as well as the shuttle bus and boat services are available free of charge upon presenting your valid World Championships ticket.
