Autumn Colors From Buda Hills & Pilis Mountains

If we’d like to get away from the crowd and noise of Budapest, we go for a hike in Buda Hills. While the city is lively and magnificent, Buda Hills are peaceful and fresh. And green – uhm, actually yellow, orange and brown this time of the year. Pilis Mountains are not much further and offer even more long and lovely hiking trails. And even more autumn colors that we just can’t get bored of.

Both Buda Hills and Pilis Mountains are popular getaways among locals for walking, hiking and biking. Their highest peaks being around 500-700 meters, we couldn’t really call them mountains. Still they’re the closest mountains to Budapest. And we like them the most in autumn. All those warm colors of the season just make their forests magical. The trees are dressed in yellow, orange, red and brown.

This autumn we especially enjoyed their trails a lot. Since our baby boy was born at the end of August, we couldn’t take long trips this autumn. (Ah… with the amount of sleep we sometimes got, we were surprised that we were able to do anything.) Instead we took him to long walks and hikes in the Buda Hills and Pilis Mountains – ones that we truly enjoyed and he soundly slept through. 😀 Anyway, we’re sure he’ll get the hang of it.

We realized we haven’t ever hiked this much in the Buda Hills. We had no idea that the views on the hills near Biatorbágy are so spectacular:

Or that Farkas-hegy offers a special 360 degrees panorama of the autumn landscape:

And well, we enjoyed all the sunshine and the beautiful colors, and returning to the trails we like in Pilis Mountains.
