Budapest offers a great variety of events during November. You can visit Christmas Markets and taste delicious wines and cheeses made by Hungarian manufactureres. Here are our favourite events you must check out during your stay at THE MAGAZINE HOTEL.
10.10 – 31.12.2017 Budapest Christmas Market in November
The Christmas Market in Budapest, which has become a big hit amongst the European Christmas markets is the most centrally located and most traditional Xmas fair.
The market is often listed on major traveller’s sites and magazines as one of the Top 10 Christmas Markets in Europe.
Indeed, the market is a must see if you visit Budapest after mid November, when the biggest central Xmas Fair opens.
It opens in mid November each year and is called the Vorosmarty square Christmas Market.
The recently launched Basilica Christmas Market usually opens in late November (on Nov 24 in 2017) or at the beginning of December (the newer one on St Stephen’s Square, right in front of the tall building of the Basilica – you cannot miss it, as the church tower gives perfect orientation on the flat Pest side). One of the best things to do in Budapest from mid November.
