Get in

Take the M3 motorway from Budapest as far as Hatvan, then take route 21. Before Pásztó the road branches off towards Hollókő. Journey time is about 1.5-2 hours

There is a bus from Budapest leaving from Puskás Ferenc Stadion departure 8:30AM, Arrival 11:00AM, (also there is a bus afternon around 5PM) return 4:00PM, Arrival 6:30PM

More buses going to Szécsény town.

Eger might be close to Hollókő, but it's not a really good place to start your journey to Hollókő if you plan to go by public transport. There is no train, and you need 3 buses that are going to take a total of 4:30 hours to get there... (Eger information centre can help for time table and details.). Prefer a departure from Budapest or Gödöllő.

Get around

On foot. This is a small village, with one street, on both sides museum houses and craft shops. Make sure you visit all of them. From the main road of the village leading up to the hill, you will also find a pathway to the Holloko castle. With only 20 minutes hike you will find yourself on the top of the hill with breathtaking scenery.
