What to Expect
Bring your holiday cheer to this Christmas-themed tour of Budapest. Hungary is a Christian country, and Christmas is celebrated by almost everyone. On this 2.5-hour tour you’ll learn about local holiday traditions and why Santa Claus comes on 6 December and not Christmas Eve!

This special tour begins at Oktogon Square, a common meeting point for locals, and heads to the non-touristy markets, where you’ll get to see the most typical of Hungarian Christmas goods. Along the way, you’ll learn about the history of this inner city area.

Next, you’ll pass by the Jewish Quarter, and have a chance to warm up in a cosy local bar before you come to the Hungarian State Opera House and St. Stephen’s Basilica.

Continue on to the next market for an experience of more Christmas customs. You’ll get to sample some typical Christmas cake and learn why Hungarian families traditionally eat fish at this time of year.

Your guide will take you along the river on a walk to a Christmas market that’s ranked as one of the best in Europe. Celebrate the season with your new traveler friends under the biggest Christmas tree in Budapest.

The walking tour will end at one of the most charming Christmas markets in the city’s downtown area. You can stay on as long as you like to experience even more culinary delights of an authentic Hungarian Christmas.
