Merry Markets Experience in Budapest with Wine Tasing

    What to Expect
    Your tour begins at Deák Ferenc Square, a favorite hangout of Budapest locals, where you’ll greet your guide and get into the festive spirit. Your first stop is the Christmas market in Obuda, where you’ll hear about Hungarian Christmas traditions while browsing stalls selling local produce.

    Stray from the beaten path as you cross the Obuda River, and head to a local haunt to sip mulled wine, a festive drink spiced using cloves and cinnamon. Then, proceed to St. Stephen’s Basilica, a neo-classical cathedral whose twin clock towers create a striking image, before arriving at your second Christmas market.

    Here, you’ll sample Christmas cake and learn about Hungarian holiday traditions, including why locals eat fish on Christmas day.

    Your tour concludes in downtown Budapest, at one of the city’s most charming markets, where you can continue browsing independently.

    We did the Christmas market tour with Dori and had an amazing time! She took us to a really cool local market that was much more authentic and less touristy than the main ones and explained local customs, traditional foods, and gave a lot of historical background on Budapest and

    Thanks a lot for your review! We also absolutely recommend Dori:) It is always especially great to read feedbacks on the pop-up Christmas tour, since there is only one month in the year when people can take that tour. We hope that with the help of Dori we could gave you a memorable experience. Hope to have you here in Budapest next time again, or at any other Urban Adventures destinations! All the best,
