Debrecen Workshop on Argument Structure (WAS)
University of Debrecen, May 25-27, 2012

Please note that Budapest Airport will move all airline operations from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 during the night of 29-30 May.

We would also like to remind you that Pentecost Sunday (May 27) and Monday (May 28) are holidays in Hungary. This means that all stores and banks will be closed on these days and trains, buses, and trams will operate less frequently.

Getting to Budapest by air:

Budapest's main airport is Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport (BUD), which has two terminals. Terminal 1 is mainly for low-cost carriers such as EasyJet, Jet2, and Germanwings. Terminal 2 is for European and long-haul (non-European) destinations.

Getting from Budapest to Debrecen by train:

1. Take bus No. 200E from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1. A ticket will cost you HUF 400 if purchased on board the bus.
If you arrive at Terminal 1, you can skip Step 1.

2. After you get off at Terminal 1, enter the terminal building and look for a Tourinform office, where you can buy MÁV (Hungarian Railways) tickets. We recommend that you buy a 2nd class (full-price) ticket to Debrecen (HUF 3690) and an Intercity (IC) seat reservation ticket (HUF 380).

The IC seat reservation ticket is mandatory on IC trains, which run every hour during the day and stop at Terminal 1 (the name of the train stop is "Budapest-Airport"). The train ride between Budapest-Airport and Debrecen is approx. 2 hours and 30 minutes. The last stop before Debrecen is Hajdúszoboszló and it takes about 15 minutes to get to Debrecen Train Station from there.
