Greetings! This forum has already been immensely helpful in helping plan my trip; I'll get around to posting an itinerary for feedback, but for now I have a couple questions to help me plan. I've read the vast majority of the topics here, so hopefully I'll avoid asking any obvious questions.
We'll be in Budapest for about a week (dates TBD) in early October, traveling with a 6mo and 2yr old (this will be our 3rd European trip with an infant - apparently we've turned it into a tradition!) I'd been eyeing Budapest before thinking about family-friendly activities, but it seems providential - Budapest looks like a great place for families.
That said, is there anything that really wouldn't be appropriate? E.g., even if he wouldn't understand the content, would House of Terror be too intense (or boring) for my 2yo?
Are there any restaurants that should be either sought out or avoided in particular? We won't attempt anything fancy, but otherwise would probably choose a range of places. Will our kids be welcome (if they're well-behaved)?
It looks like we cannot take them into the baths, but is it worth the brief Szechenyi tour just to see it? Their web site notes that you can take children to the Margaret Island baths, is that worth doing?
Any toddler-appropriate activities or sites we should make sure to take in? Here are a few of the thing's I've bookmarked:
- Margaret Island
- Children's railway?
- Puppet theatre?
- There are a number of interesting parks/playgrounds, we'll get to one or two of them I'm sure.
Otherwise, we should be hitting the typical sights in the city, with the exception of most or all museums (2yo can be great, but can also be...a 2yo. :) ) It also looks like the boats run on Saturdays through October, so we can do the half day afternoon trip to Szentendre, returning on the river.
