Budapest holidays are like a scene from a fairytale. Known for its stunning architecture, historical sites, thermal spas and open-air cafes, this European city boasts a cool and cosmopolitan vibe. Discover the city’s rich architectural legacy in the majestic Hungarian Parliament Building or the gorgeous Buda Castle, home to a rich collection of Hungarian Art. Spend a relaxing afternoon at Szechenyi spa soaking up the summer sun and the warm waters of the natural thermal baths. Even better, cruise along the Danube, check out the cosmopolitan neighbourhoods and catch a drink or two at one of the several open-air cafes in the heart of the city.
Thanks to a calendar of cool festivals during the summer and the winter, Budapest holidays make for a great getaway all-year-round. However, the best months to visit Budapest are from March - May and September – November, when the weather is mild and the city is not too overcrowded. Holidays in Budapest are very affordable (with some of the cheapest alcoholic drink prices in Europe), plus our great-value all inclusive and last minute deals mean even more bang for your buck.
There are plenty of things to do in Budapest for families, but it’s also a happening destination for single travellers and the LGBT community, with a variety of gay-friendly bars, nightclubs and venues. The Budapest Pride and the Budapest Pride Film and Cultural Festival are some of the important events in the calendar.
