If you are looking for a challenging running tour that offers the most breathtaking panoramic views of the city, the Heartbeat Tour is for you.
We begin at one of Budapest’s stunning bridges—Erzsébet Bridge—and cross over into Buda, where we begin our 140 m ascent to the famous Citadella atop Gellert hill. From there, we make our way down to the famous Gellert Hotel and Baths, where some soaking in the therapeutic waters is a great way to recover from a good run.
The hillwork is steep but the paved path is quiet and the air terrific. In terms of distance, this is the shortest running tour offered—the strenuous inclines will give you a great workout, but this is a run that as a personalized tour, you can fit in before breakfast, in between meetings, or just before sunset. Watching the sun descend behind the hills of Buda from atop the Gellert hill is one of the best sights the city has to offer.
