Winter in Budapest

Winter in Budapest

While this is the coldest season, Budapest awaits everyone in winter with lots of excitement and experiences. It is an unmissable activity to visit one of the many experience baths with thermal and medicinal water where you can enjoy the power of springs refreshing both mind and body.

You can take a walk in the city dressed up in festive lights as you stroll along the decorated Andrássy or Bartók Béla Avenues. The real sensation of the Advent season is the Tram of Lights which runs in several spectacular routes every year.

Immemorable experiences include a joint glide on the ice in the Ice-skating rink in City Park, near the Castle of Vajdahunyad, which gives the impression of an enchanted fairy castle in winter. The hills of Buda are the most beautiful in winter, especially when covered in snow. Children’s Railway, with its curves in the forest and the carriages sometimes heated by iron stoves flies you all the way to Elizabeth Lookout Tower on János Hill, offering a spectacular view.
