kari Christmas market time in Budapest

It is not December yet, but our biggest and some smaller Christmas markets in Budapest have already opened their gates to visitors. If you are one of the those who cannot wait this part of the year when the smell of hot wine, chocolate and gingerbread flies across the whole city, you will be at the right place if you come to Vörösmarty square (the meeting point of our free walking tours) where the main Christmas market of Budapest has started. This one has been organized every year since 1998 and has become the favourite of thousands of us Hungarians and travellers, too.

From the 10 th of November until the 28 th of December you can find the Crafts Market open and from the same date until the 31 st of December you can fill you belly with delicious Hungarian (and non-Hungarian) food and sweets. At the Crafts Market Hungarian artists, designers, tailors, blacksmiths and so on sell their hand-made products, so do not miss it!

The Market on Vörösmarty square makes it a little harder to get to our meeting point, but you can find us every day at the set times next to the building of the Gerbeaud café, next to the stage and the Lion fountain. Before our free walking tours start, you can always find our guides in their royal blue jackets on the square. Come join us, do your Budapest sightseeing with our lovely guides!
