Via Könyves Kálmán körút from Népliget:
Turn right onto Mester utca at the Lurdy House shopping mall, then turn left at Vágóhíd utca. Continue straight ahead at the junction, crossing Soroksári út before turning left onto Laczkovich utca to access the Müpa Budapest underground car park.
Via Rákóczi Bridge from Buda:
After turning right at the end of the bridge, take the left lane and follow the signs to “Centrum” before immediately turning right onto Vágóhíd utca. Loop around to cross Soroksári út and turn left into Laczkovich utca to access the Müpa Budapest underground car park.

I. FREE PARKING
Müpa Budapest provides complementary parking for visitors with paid tickets to any of our public performances on the day of the performance.
Free parking in this case is available for a single entry and lasts until Müpa Budapest closes.
Parking is available for our visitors in two locations: the underground garage and the outdoor parking lot.
1. The Underground garage
The underground garage is available for guests of Müpa Budapest every day during normal building operating hours. Visitors arriving to one of our paid events can enter the garage without obtaining a parking ticket; other guests have to get a parking ticket from the terminal upon entry.
A. Entry without a parking ticket using a performance ticket on the performance day
• If you have the performance ticket for the day at hand when entering the garage, you do not have to get a parking ticket – simply hold the barcode of the ticket to the barcode reader. (The system reads the barcode/QR code of tickets either bought at our box offices or printed at home or presented on the screen of your smartphone and opens the gate.) We ask that you bring a printed ticket with you.
Entering the garage this way means you have validated for your parking, so you may park until the building is closed.
The gate may not open even if the performance ticket has been read successfully. In this case, please take a parking ticket and validate it later using your performance ticket. For more information, please refer to the section “Entry with a parking ticket”.
When leaving the garage, the system reads the number plate of your vehicle, verifies that you have paid for your parking and opens the gate.
Important: Please retain your performance ticket until you exit the garage.
• If your performance ticket is not at hand when you enter the underground garage, or the system does not open the gate after reading the barcode of your ticket, please take a parking ticket from the ticket machine.
• You can validate your parking ticket later – and thus annul any parking fee with your performance ticket to a paid public event for that day. Please do not leave your parking ticket in your vehicle so you may validate it at one of the parking terminals.
C. Entry with prior registration for the Platinum parking spaces
Those patrons who have reached the Platinum level of the Müpa+ loyalty programme may continue to register for the Platinum parking spaces, located in the underground garage, on the Müpa homepage. Registration is possible on the concert page until 11:59 pm on the day before the concert. The gates of the garage will automatically open upon approaching the entrance and exit terminals after license plate recognition.
Validation of parking tickets for free parking
Our visitors can themselves validate their parking tickets at the parking terminals located on every level of the underground garage; alternatively, if you pick up or happen to buy your tickets for a performance after entering the garage, our colleagues at the ticket offices will be more than happy to help you with the validation of your parking ticket at the time of the purchase.
Parking ticket machines are available at the following locations:
• in the underground garage – at the posted signs,
• at the ticket offices.
How to use the parking terminals:
• hold the barcode of the parking ticket to the barcode reader,
• when prompted, hold the barcode/QR code of your performance ticket to the barcode reader,
• the system informs you that your parking fee has been validated, and you may leave the garage with your vehicle.
You can validate your parking ticket
• before the start of the performance,
• during the intermission, or even
• after the performance.
When leaving the garage, the system reads the number plate of your vehicle, verifies that your parking has been validated and opens the gate.
After validating your ticket, you may leave the underground garage at any time until the building closes.
Important: Do not forget to validate your parking ticket before attempting to leave the garage as you cannot do so at the gate.
If you fail to leave the underground garage with your vehicle before the building closes, you will be charged the standard hourly rate of HUF250. You can pay this fee at of the underground parking terminals before leaving the garage. For more information please refer to the section “Parking for a fee”.
2. Outdoor parking lot
In case the underground garage is full, the outdoor parking lot will be made available for use to ticket holders of Müpa Budapest performances only.
Upon entry, you may park in any of the free spots. Your performance ticket will be checked after the programme, when exiting the parking lot, therefore please retain your ticket to the programme you attended, since you will be asked to produce it to the lot attendant.
If you do not have a ticket to a Müpa Budapest performance for the day of your parking, you will be charged a parking flat rate fee of HUF500/automobile. For more information please refer to the section “Parking for a fee ”.
Important: Please retain your performance ticket after the programme and keep it at hand to ensure your free of chage parking.
The outdoor parking lot, when opened, operates until the building closes, and is locked down afterwards. If you wish to leave the parking lot with your vehicle when the lot is closed, you will be charged an extra after hours operation surcharge. For more information please refer to section “Parking for a fee”.
