5 things to do in Budapest in autumn

Autumn is always magical, and we love it for different reasons: it is the time of colourful trees, velvet, and orange leaves everywhere; you can finally wear your favourite hoodie and style the layered clothing; the season of pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween arrives; and last but not least, it is the time of late travel. A lot of us can’t go on a holiday in the summer, or don’t want to (to avoid the crowds) and set our trip to the end of fall. We feel you, and that is why we brought you a guide when you come to Budapest because you sure will after you read this article. Here are 5 amazing things to do in Budapest in the fall.

What are the most beautiful places in Budapest in autumn?

On all social media platforms fall is about the beautiful colours and sights, which give you goosebumps just by looking at them. Budapest is full of attractions that will amaze you for sure, the difference is, you will be living in that Instagram-like picture. The Buda Castle in the fall is truly gorgeous, like stepping into a fairy tale with wonders and magic. A lot of photographers visit the castle this time of the year to take breathtaking pictures of the view from the Fisherman’s Bastion and Matthias Church. Next to Buda Castle, you should definitely visit Gellért Hill too. The view from there is even more mesmerizing at this time of the year.

Note: If you would like to make this trip memorable, one of the best things to do in Budapest is to bring your camera and have a stroll on the bank of the river Danube while taking pictures of the landscape.

The other favoured tourist attraction in the fall is Margaret Island. This gem on the river Danube is the perfect getaway for the locals and a preferred spot for couples for a romantic date. You can travel to Margaret Bridge by the famous Tram 2, which was featured amongst the world’s top 10 most beautiful tram lines in National Geographic. From the Bridge, you can take a nice stroll to the island. Grab a hot drink, a nice coffee, or a hot chocolate, grab your significant other and enjoy the autumn atmosphere there. The Japanese garden and the little zoo will be a unique add-on to your trip to the island.
