Bestie about to get hitched? Treat her to a weekend she'll never forget and jet off to Budapest for a few days of affordable cocktails, calming spa sessions and charming European culture.

The Hungarian capital nestled on the majestic Danube River is packed with centuries of fascinating history, from Hapsburg palaces and Gothic cathedrals to poignant museums and memorials from its WWII occupation. Nicknamed the ‘city of baths', it's become a major hen do destination not just for its unique nightlife and stunning backdrops, but also its lush thermal spas. Locals have bathed in the city's soothing waters since Roman times and we're certain you'll find a relaxing dip the ideal hangover cure.

For more traditional hen do activities, Budapest doesn't disappoint, either. The city is a party mecca, with its iconic ruin bars providing a laid back location for hens to let loose. For Budapest hen do ideas with a little more wow-factor, consider a tasty dinner cruise, tickets to the biggest music festival in Europe or seeing the sights from above on an incredible helicopter tour.

    Must-see neighbourhoods in Budapest

    Jewish Quarter

    Found on the Pest side of the river, the Jewish Quarter (aka District Seven) was formerly a ghetto during WWII, but rose from the ashes to become one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Budapest. It's where you'll find the city's famed ruin bars - ramshackle yet welcoming drinking holes lodged inside abandoned old buildings - as well as dozens of cosy restaurants, independent shops and the beautiful Dohány Street Synagogue.

    Castle Hill

    No trip to Budapest is complete without strolling (or catching the funicular railway) up to the UNESCO World Heritage Castle Hill. Near its summit is where you'll spot grand Buda Castle - the home of the Hungarian National Gallery and former seat of the Hungarian royal family - while the top is scattered with stunning structures like dreamy Fisherman's Bastion and Matthias Church with its colourful roof.

    Gellert Hill

    Gellert Hill neighbours Castle Hill and it's a great spot for both bathing at the art deco Gellert Baths and taking in beautiful vistas. Increase your heart rate hiking up weaving pathways to the Citadella, a 19th century fortress that's now one of the best viewpoints in the city. If you're feeling a bit delicate, catch the number 27 bus instead.

    Belváros-Lipótváros

    More commonly known as District V, this is the very centre of Budapest and a real hub for shopping and dining. It's also where you'll discover key landmarks like St. Stephen's Basilica and the majestic Hungarian Parliament Building. The area's vast riverfront is home to the city's hippest bars and clubs, in addition to some of the best markets for treats and souvenirs.

    Budapest Hens

    Whether you're ladies are looking for luxury or you'd rather splash your cash wining and dining, Budapest is jam-packed with hen-friendly accommodation to suit all budgets.

    Hens on a shoestring will be spoilt for choice by great hostels right in the heart of the city which feature stylishly decorated rooms and cool areas for socialising.
