The Central Market Hall is a foodie's heaven, a colorful display of fresh produce and aromatic spices. Soak up the bustle as traders and buyers cheerfully negotiate deals among stalls. Peruse local specialties and wines, learn the chef's tricks in a nearby kitchen, and enjoy a Hungarian meal.

The Central Market Hall of Budapest is constantly abuzz, spread over an area of 100,000 square feet (10,000 sq m) on 3 floors. It's one of the landmarks of the city, built in the 19th century, with brightly colored roof tiles that are easy to spot even from a distance. Walk with an expert guide who introduces you to the rich heritage of Hungarian food culture. Admire the sheer variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and spices on display.

Continue to a nearby kitchen for a crash-course in Hungarian cooking, preparing a light, 2-course meal, including the famous goulash soup and sweet crêpes. Receive a culinary “diploma” and a glass of characteristic, local wine—sharing a toast and laughter with your fellow foodies to complete this leisurely tour.
