Traveling by train

You can use the railway to travel from the airport to Debrecen, to travel within Hungary or visit the neighboring countries.
You will probably arrive to Budapest or Debrecen by airplane. Both Wizzair and Lufthansa operate flights to/from Debrecen.

In case you have decided to travel by train from the Budapest Airport to Debrecen, you need to take first a bus Nr. 200E. Its stop can be found on arrival level next to Terminal 2B. When you come out from the building, turn right and you will see the sign of a bus stop.
