If you travel to Szentendre from Budapest, you must visit Skanzen. I suggest you leave Budapest by 09h00 - 10h00 as the H5 HÉV train ride will take ~45 minutes. For the H5 train to Szentendre, you need to buy the 15 km extension ticket...More

On a nice day, a great way to be outside and learn about Hungarian history and culture, and to be exposed to different traditions from around the country.

We spent 3 hours here but wasn’t nearly long enough and unfortunately by the time we arrived most of the demonstrations were over. Tip: consult the website for hours of operation for demonstrations and the train. Overall a pleasant day out.

This is a multi-faceted place with plenty of different buildings, workshops and craft people to visit. We combined this with a stop at the restaurant on site where we participated in a demonstration of Hungarian Goulash (soup) making. Service in the restaurant was perfunctory but...More

I have been to this place on many kinds of occasions ranging from school trip to family events. What I particularly like about Skanzen is their willingness to improve. They organise games for children (adults are welcome, too), one can taste wine, and they offer...More

This is one of the largest Skanzens in Europe, and we were looking forward to revisiting again, having first gone there in 2001. It is now much larger, with several new 'building groups, and a railway to help visitors with mobility problems. We visited in...More

They charge 900 huf for parking, which is annoying. English page on website says it opens at 10, when it’s actually 9, sloppy. Most of the buildings are rural, which have the same stuff europewide, so it didn’t have a Hungarian feel. Most interesting bits...More

There are a lot of buildings from all over from Hungary from the villages. It is really very interesting to have an overview of the past.
