How to get here...

...from Budapest

After arriving to the airport of Budapest the first thing you must do is to change about 50 Euros into Forint (Hungarian currency). Now you have about 17,000 Forint with you. Usually, the exchange rate at airports is a bit higher than in the city.
After that, you need to go to the main train station – called Keleti Pályaudvar – where you can take a direct train to Sopron. You can choose from two transfer options: either you can take a taxi at the airport or you can use public transport. The first one is obviously quicker but more expensive (should cost between 8,000 – 9,000 Forint, for about 25 minutes), while the public transport is cheaper (should cost 700 Forint for the two line tickets, each one is 350 Forint). If you decide to take a bus/tram/subway in Budapest, you can search for routes and connections on this page:
