Budapest Christmas market breaks

Start your Christmas market break in Vorosmarty Square, the home of Budapest’s oldest festive market. This annual celebration brings Hungarian folk music and dancing, traditional food, drink and handcrafted gifts to the heart of the city. Enhance your winter getaway with this magical experience – as festive sounds, scrumptious smells and enchanting decorations awaken your Christmas senses. Immerse yourself in the buzz of the market stalls, picking up 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 for wintertime warmth. Book a stay at the Hilton Budapest, for sensational views in the castle district.
