Sziget Express: Not only for dutchies

Sziget Express: Not only for dutchies

thursday, april 5th, 2018 / Editors

Sziget Express is a festival train that departs from the Netherlands (Amersfoort) to Budapest. This train does not only invite the crazy dutchies, it welcomes everyone who is going to Sziget! It is one incredible experience to start your journey upon board and travel your way to Sziget with enthusiastic festivalgoers. 

#Sziget Express

The Sziget Express is one heck of an unique experience! It is definitely not something you see or do everyday. It has a party wagon with DJ’s on board and a bar to quench your thirst. You get to party in a train full of Szitizens, make new friendship even before arriving to the festival and this adventure is the most fun way to travel to the island of freedom. Tickets differ per comfort level and are available from £157 (€180) onwards, see the Sziget Express page.

This year, the trains will depart on different days from Holland right to Sziget. It is no excuse to not join even if you are not from the Netherlands! Since the trains ride on Sunday 5. August or Tuesday 7. August, you can simply book a cheap weekend in the Netherlands. You will also be returning back to the Netherlands, since the return ticket is included. Budapest is one of the most stunning cities in Europe. Find out more about ‘What to do after Sziget?‘.

#Travelling to the Netherlands

There are several ways to travel to the Netherlands. The quickest travel option is to fly over. Many airlines such as British Airwaves, KLM, easyJet and Ryanair offer direct flights from the UK and Ireland to Amsterdam. We recommend using to find the cheapest airfares online. Perhaps you are looking for cheaper ways to travel then by bus or train can also be an option, but do keep in mind that it costs you more travel time!

You can either catch the Sziget Express directly upon arrival or you can stay over for one or two days and relax before hitting the tracks.
