Am 8. März 1950 rollt – nach einer Idee von Ben Pon – der erste in Serie gefertigte Transporter vom Band: Der Volkswagen T1!
Der geplante Einsatzbereich des Fahrzeugs stand Pate amen: VW Transporter. Unter dieser Bezeichnung beginnt der Tausendsassa seine Erfolgsgeschichte.

Der Volkswagen T1 begründet somit quasi eine neue Fahrzeuggattung und ist bis zum heutigen Tag deren führender Vertreter.
Bis zum Jahr 1967 werden in zahlreichen Ausführungen insgesamt 1,82 Millionen Volkswagen Transporter des ersten Typs gefertigt – anfangs noch in Wolfsburg, seit März 1956 in Hannover.

Das Konzept des auch VW Bus genannten T1 ist neben den zahlreichen Varianten der Grund zum Erfolg: Frontlenkerbauweise mit optimaler Raumausnutzung, Heckmotor mit guten Traktionseigenschaften bei Nässe, Schnee, Eis, in Sand und … natürlich auch auf befestigten
Fahrbahnen. Dies war damals genauso einzigartig, wie der luftgekühlte Vierzylinder-Boxermotor auch.

Der Volkswagen Transporter T1 wartete zusätzlich dazu noch mit einer geteilten Windschutzscheibe, auch split window genannt, auf.

 Machen Sie eine unvergessliche, wirklich tolle Erlebnis-Stadtrundfahrt mit der kultischen VW Bulli-Version "Samba-VW Bulli"  durch Budapest mit uns!  Geniessen Sie auch durch das Faltschiebedach die beste Aussicht!

Mit diesem Bus zu fahren macht es sicherlich Spaß und Sie werden eine Nostalgie erleben!
Die Menschen auf der Straße halten an, bestaunen VW-'Samba'Bulli und winken eine oft auch zu.
Aus dem Bus kann man alles sehen, da es eine hohe Sitzposition, Rundumsicht durch die Fester
und der Blick  auf den Himmel durch das Faltschiebedach gibt...

Selbst eine Stadtrundfahrt in Budapest mit diesem kleinen Bus für max. 6 Personen bleibt einfach ein unvergessliches Erlebnis für Sie!

Sie fahren alle Highlights in Budapest an:  auf den Gellértberg mit atemberaubenden Aussicht auf die Stadt, den Burgberg mit der Matthias-Kirche  (von außen, Aussicht von der Fischerbastei), die Kettenbrücke, das Parlament (kurzer Spaziergang), die Andrássy-Allee, zum  Heldenplatz und im Stadtwäldchen.

Das Ende der Tour kann – je nach Wunsch  - im jüdischen Viertel bei einer kultigen Ruinenkneipe,
in der Nähe der Fußgängerzone oder bei der zentralen Markthalle sein.

Erleben Sie mit uns eine  besondere Stadtrundfahrt bei Tag oder bei Nacht mit VW Bulli in Budapest!

Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix

Are you a fan of F1 Championships? Then it’s high time to visit the Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix on 22-24 July 2016. The race being held at the Mogyorod will be the 31th Hungarian Grand Prix and for this occasion the staff at Hungaroring is planning special additional programs for the spectators.


Come and visit our sites: 

FacebookInstagramTwitterGoogle+ and LinkedIn.

About the beginnings:

The Hungaroring track is situated 20 kilometers north of the Hungarian capital, Budapest. Hungary first hosted a Grand Prix in the 1930s, but the Second World War and the Iron Curtain made it impossible to continue the races.  At the start of the 1980s there was a general wish for a Grand Prix to be held behind the Iron Curtain, there was a demand to re-boost the motorsport in Hungary. In the summer of 1983, the attention of the Formula 1 decision makers turned towards Budapest, and from that moment on Hungary has become part of the global motorsport, again.

At first, a street race through Budapest was suggested, but in the end they changed their mind and decided to build a brand new circuit in a valley 20 kilometers outside of Budapest. The valley provided natural vantage points for spectators. The track opened in 1986 and the first Formula One event was held in August that year. It was a huge success with almost 200,000 fans.

About the advantages:

The track is in a 110 hectar natural valley, surrounded by 50 hectares of rolling hillside. With this exceptional natural advantage - being situated in a natural amphitheater - almost 70 percent of the racetrack is visible from any point. This is the reason why it is called "The Shallow Plate", is because the spectators are watching races sitting by the side of an imaginary plate.

About the success of F1 Hungarian Grand Prixes:

Due to the constant improvement and reconstruction of the circuit, Hungaroring meets the highest technical requirements and has become one of the safest racetracks in the world. After three decades, Hungaroring has turned into the third most special event behind Monte-Carlo and Monza to have been featured in the race calendar.

About the accommodation, transport and the city:

The F1 Hungarian Grand Prix gives you the perfect opportunity to explore Budapest, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Budapest is a real metropolis with its hotels, bars, restaurants and extra entertainment facilities where the tourists, drivers and the teams will be able to meet their requirements.

We are at your service, if you need a minibus or a helicopter transfer from the airport or you desire to fly over the Hungaroring by helicopter. You are safe with us!

Gödöllő and horse show

Are you curious about the second largest Baroque castle in the world? Would you like to visit a mysterious place of pilgrimage? Do you want to see exciting equestrian stunts? You can find all of the above in Gödöllő and its surroundings, not far from Budapest!


Come and visit our sites: 

Gödöllő is famous for its Royal Palace, the second biggest surfaced palace after Versailles. Antal Grassalkovich, one of the most respectable noblemen during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, built the castle in the mid-18th century. He, as the confidential agent of Empress Maria Theresa, hosted her in the palace in 1751. During the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the baroque palace became the favorite summer residence of the royals.  Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife, Elisabeth spent a lot of time here. Empress Elizabeth (nicknamed Sissi) especially enjoyed spending time here, as she was happy to be in the company of Hungarians.

The Royal Palace was beautifully restored to give its original splendor back. The baroque palace with its glamorous white and gold Grand Hall, richly painted rooms, red marble bath and conservatory, huge riding school, baroque theatre and large park represent the wealthy lifestyle of the nobility during Austro-Hungarian Empire. The 860 acres of the botanical garden is the home to 147 conifer and gymnosperms species and 875 types of leafy trees and bushes. While walking in the Gödöllő Botanical Garden, established in 1902 or enjoying refreshments at the cafe, you will definitely feel like a king or a queen.

Nearby, you can find Máriabesnyő, one of Hungary’s most famous pilgrimage places. In 1758 János Fidler, a mason from Gödöllő, had a dream about a small bone statuette under the ruins of the church, which he eventually found. The statue probably dates back to the 12th century and it portrays the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus in her arms.  It is 11cm tall, 4cm wide and due to its measurements, it is the smallest Virgin Mary statue in the country. The miraculously found bone statue is placed in the high altar of the Nagyboldogasszony Basilica Minor. The two-storied baroque temple with the two altars and the Virgin Mary Statue is a unique site and attracts thousands of pilgrims every year.

If you want to experience the real Hungarian hospitality, visit the Lázár Equestrian Park in the picturesque Domonyvölgy, only half an hour from Budapest. The Park is owned by Vilmos and Zoltán Lázár, 16 time Carriage Driving World Champions. You can learn about equestrian traditions when different horse shows of carriage driving, horseback archery, acrobatics of horse herders and hussars take place. Visitors say that “puszta-ötös” is the most fantastic horse program, which is when a rider stands on the back of two horses while being pulled by another three. After seeing native Hungarian grey cattle, racka sheep, mangalica pigs and puli dogs, you can taste traditional home-style Hungarian dishes.

Come and see the sites of Gödöllő and its surroundings, where you can find a mixture of relaxing, exciting and mysterious experiences.
