The M6 motorway is a north-south motorway in Hungary running along the Danube connecting Budapest to the seat of Baranya county Pécs, and further south to the Croatian border.

  • On 22 September 2008, 11 more km were opened to the public as Érd was connected to M0 (the orbital motorway of Budapest).
