The Chairlift

The Chairlift, Libegő in Hungarian, functions as an exciting mode of public transport to the Buda Hills. The nearly 1-km-long, cable-suspended conveyance takes riders up the side of János Hill in about 15 minutes.

This is a special way to sight-see and have fun at the same time. It is also a brilliant way to get some easy physical activity in during your vacation. Beer Bike’s vehicles can carry up to 14 or 16 people (with 8 active pedalers and 6 idler seats). They are all operated by trained drivers, so there is no need to worry about having a traffic accident. This tour provides unlimited alcohol but you can try its alcohol free version as well. You can either blast your own playlist or you can choose different kinds of music to listen to with your friends.
