 Budapest in Winter

Christmas Markets, New Year's Eve in Budapest

Budapest - your travel destination in the winter

Budapest is a great destination even in the winter time. There is a very good chance that the city will be covered in snow from November onwards and everything looks sparkling and white. Enjoy the many great restaurants and cafés in the city and don't forget to visit our hot spring spas. Some of them, like the grand Szechenyi Spa, has an outside pool open in the winter.
