Go on a hike with a baby stroller!

In Budapest and its immediate vicinity, you can find numerous hiking spots that are easily accessible with a baby stroller. Explore them one by one, from the idyllic waterside promenades to the shadowy forest trails!

Kolonics György promenade

Directly alongside the Danube River meanders the picturesque Kolonics György Promenade, named after the late Olympic champion canoeist. The 5 kilometre section between Gubacsi Bridge and Nádfedeles Csárda is perfect for families with young children, bikes, and baby strollers, providing a  comfortable path along the riverside, where the Danube flows rapidly just a stone’s throw away. While the promenade lacks a built infrastructure, you’ll be rewarded with an undisturbed waterside atmosphere.

From Fenyőgyöngye to Árpád lookout tower

From Kolosy Square, buses 65 and 65A will take you to Fenyőgyöngye Restaurant in less than 10 minutes, from where you can take a pleasant walk to Árpád Lookout Tower, offering a beautiful city panorama. The forest path,  which is wonderful in all seasons, is about 1.5 kilometres in one direction with a minimal incline, so you can easily take a leisurely pace, even with young  children, and complete the walk in just over an hour. Next to the lookout there are benches where you can enjoy a little snack.

Omszki Lake

Just outside the northern border of Budapest, you’ll quickly reach Omszki
Lake, surrounded by a well-maintained park. There’s a 1.6-kilometre-long rubberised running track around the lake, inviting you for active recreation, even with a sports baby stroller. Thanks to the pleasant walkway next to the running track, you can easily explore the waterside park in Budakalász on foot or by bicycle. In the summer, there’s even a wakeboard track operating in the area.
