Holidays in Budapest

Considered one of the coolest places in Europe, it has irresistible city break appeal. However, with so much to do it’s also very easy to take longer holidays in Budapest. Cosmopolitan and full of fascinating contrasts, Hungary’s capital will entice you back time and again.

Divided by the Danube River, both sides have something to give. Buda, its leafy hills supplying spectacular views, brilliant parks and world-class spas. And Pest, an urban sprawl decked out with many hip bars, cafes and culture. There is an interesting immerging trend of rooftop bars, giving access to some panoramic views of the Danube and beyond. Architecture is a mix of classical, gothic revival and modern, as the city has been rebuilt many times. The diverse nature of Budapest gives insights into its past, both noble and notorious.

Budapest Christmas market breaks.

Budapest Christmas market breaks

Start your Christmas market break in Vorosmarty Square, the home of Budapest’s oldest festive market – located nearby to the luxurious Ritz Carlton Budapest. This annual celebration brings Hungarian folk music and dancing, traditional food and drink and handcrafted gifts to the heart of the city. Enhance your winter getaway with this magical experience – as festive sounds, nostalgic smells and enchanting decorations encourage a jovial mood. Immerse yourself in the buzz of the market stalls, picking up cinnamon pastries (Kürtőskalács – Chimney Cake) and mulled wine as you go. Go skating at the ice rink in Budapest City Park, or relax in the open-air Szechenyi Baths, a blissful experience to warm your bones.
