BUDAPEST PRO TIPS

  1. Many of Budapest’s tourist attractions close their doors on Mondays, so check opening hours and plan your itinerary accordingly.
  2. Budapest History Museum is closed Mondays.
  3. We recommend only visiting Rudas Thermal Bath on a weekend, when both genders are allowed to enjoy the baths together.
  4. The Parliament offer a 45 minute guided tours in 10 different languages so be sure to book tickets in advance.
  5. St. Stephens Basilica: Plan your visit for around 6.30 pm to catch the organ concert, and be sure to get there early as tickets tend to sell out quickly.
  6. Danube Cruise: Opt for the one-hour cruise tour if you’re short on time or traveling with a limited budget. This is a great way to see the major attractions without breaking your bank.
  7. Budapest is best experienced if you have 3 or 4 days to explore. You can fully immerse yourself in its history, culture, and charm and explore all the main attractions without feeling rushed.
  8. With so much to see and do, from the stunning Parliament Building and Fisherman’s Bastion to the thermal baths and the trendy Jewish District, you’ll be grateful for the extra time to take it all in. Plus, having a few extra days will give you the opportunity to experience Budapest’s lively nightlife, savor its delicious food and wine, and simply soak up the city’s unique style and character. Trust me, you won’t regret spending a little extra time in this incredible city.
  9. When To Visit Budapest: Spring (April to June) and Fall (September to October) are the best time to visit Budapest. The weather is mild, and there are fewer tourists compared to the peak summer months.
    • Summer (June-September) is the busiest and hottest, with average temperatures reaching 27°C (81°F). These months can be crowded and expensive, so plan accordingly.
    • Winter (December to February) will be the least popular for international travelers as temperatures can drop to as low as -20°C (-4°F). However, the holiday season can be a magical time to visit with festive decorations and markets throughout the city.
    • Keep in mind that weather can be unpredictable, so be sure to check the forecast before your trip and pack accordingly.
