Visit these sights on the way

Sankt Gilgen

Sankt Gilgen

When every view feels like it should be on a postcard, it can sometimes be hard to believe that what you see is real. A village of nature and music 



'Lentia', the Roman name for this river-straddling town means 'change of course' and this Europe's Capital of Culture has done just that. Transformation on the Danube 



Located on a small arm of Strauss' 'Beautiful Blue Danube' this quiet town still retains an imperial air. Abbey town on the Danube 

Liechtenstein castle

Liechtenstein castle

Constructed by the Liechtenstein dynasty’s founder around 1130, the castle passed into the hands of other nobility and was only reacquired by the dynasty in 1807. Ancestral seat of Liechtenstein Princes 



Situated half-way between Vienna and the Hungarian capital, Gyor is the richest town in terms of historic buildings outside of Budapest. A historic Hungarian treasure-trove 

Pannonhalma Archabbey

Pannonhalma Archabbey

The Benedictine Pannonhalma Archabbey built in 996 is one of the oldest historical monuments in Hungary and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A cultural and historic delight

Budapest to Salzburg and then Salzburg to Munich Airport

We used Daytrip for the first time for 2 trips, Budapest to Salzburg and then Salzburg to Munich Airport. I was a bit hesitant about using a service like this but would definitely use them again. It was great. Both drivers were early for pick-up, very pleasant, accommodating to anything we requested and good drivers. On both trips we did side trips as well and that too all went well. A few days before your trip, Daytrip contacts you to confirm everything and with full details of your driver (including a picture) and details of the car. As it was my first time using them, I found this very reassuring. I will certainly be using them again if the need arises.

A great alternative to Air and Train!

My wife and I used DayTrip throughout our travels in Central Europe (Munich to Salzburg / Salzburg to Budapest / Budapest to Prague & Prague to Munich). The coordination and response by the DayTrip office is almost immediate. The assigned drivers were all very professional and conscientious drivers. Besides sharing their knowledge about the cities and culture, etc., they are very focused on bringing us safely and on-time to our destinations. I will not hesitate to recommend DayTrip to anyone either on holiday or business.

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Salzburg to Budapest
    Including available sights
  • English speaking

    All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, and answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.

  • Safety first!

    We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
