Merry Christmas! Dress warm and bring your holiday cheer to this Christmas-themed tour of Budapest. Hungary is a country where Christmas is celebrated by almost all its inhabitants. Learn about local holiday traditions and why Santa Claus comes on the 6th of December—not Christmas Eve.
Start your special Budapest tour at Oktogon Square, a common meeting point for city locals, before heading out to the markets, where you can see the most typical of Hungarian Christmas goods. Along the way learn about the history of this inner city area.
Next, your Budapest tour passes by the Jewish Quarter, where you have the chance to warm up in a nice Hungarian bar before carrying on to see the Hungarian State Opera House and Saint Stephen's Basilica.
After that, continue to the next fair for more Christmas customs. Sample some typical Christmas cake and explore the reason why Hungarian families traditionally eat fish at this time of year.
As your Budapest tour strolls along the river, you 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 concludes at one of the most charming Christmas arcades 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.
