Christmas in the city
Christmas period makes Budapest especially bright.
Budapest is proud of its authentic Christmas markets. In the biggest squares and most popular touristic sites there are bigger or smaller Advent Fairs throughout the city. Probably the two most popular and most traditional fairs are at Vörösmarty Square and at the Basilika. Hand-made Hungarian crafts can be bought as gifts for the beloved ones, concerts, laser shows, dance and theatral performances are part of the entertaining programs. Hungarian food specialites and mulled wine are musts top try.
If you are looking for less traditional and more modern fairs, WAMP – the Hungarian Design Market and Design Terminal Xmas market are for you, Wamp Design Market is held each Sunday at Millenaris Event Hall. Christmas Fair at Gozsdu Court is also an annual Xmas market where you can meet contemporary Hungarian designers and their crafts.
