You’ll start your special Budapest tour at Deák Ferenc Square, a common meeting point for the city’s locals, before heading out to the local market in Obuda, where you will see the most typical of Hungarian Christmas goods. Along the way, you’ll learn about the history of this inner-city area.
Next, the tour will pass to the other side of the river Obuda, where you’ll have the chance to see another non-touristy area, where the locals of the Buda side of the city come to sip mulled wine. From here you’ll jump on local transport to head back to the inner city to visit St. Stephen’s Basilica, the most beautiful Catholic church in town. After that you’ll continue to the next market for more Christmas customs, sample some typical Christmas cake and learn why Hungarian families traditionally eat fish at this time of year.
As your Budapest tour strolls along the river, you’ll end up at a Christmas market that’s ranked one of the best in Europe. Celebrate the season with your new traveler friends under the biggest Christmas tree in Budapest.
Finally, your Budapest walking tour will end at one of the most charming Christmas markets in the city’s downtown, where you can stay as long as you like and keep exploring the culinary delights of an authentic Hungarian Christmas.
