Budapest Christmas Markets: What to Expect

The good news is that there are plenty of Christmas markets and fairs in Budapest throughout the holiday season. They typically start to appear around mid-November and run through all of December.

The oldest and most popular festive market is the Budapest Christmas Fair and Winter Festival held in Vörösmarty Square, a picturesque setting in the city centre.

There are more than 100 stalls for you to browse here! As with all the other amazing Budapest Xmas markets, you can find hand-made local souvenirs to surprise your loved ones with.

And when you’ve worked up an appetite, it’s time to try some iconic Hungarian Christmas treats, such as kürtőskalács, szaloncukor, bejgli, and many more!

There’s great entertainment to take in too, including folk dancing, light shows, and live music.

As locals, we love the Budapest Christmas Fair and Winter Festival. But don’t just take our word for it! CNN included this event in its list of the world’s best Christmas markets!

While Vörösmarty Square may be the jewel in the crown, there are other Budapest Xmas markets that you must visit too.

Another highlight of the season is the Christmas Market and Advent Feast outside St Stephen’s Basilica.

Hungary’s most prestigious church provides a scenic backdrop for even more festive fun, tasty food, and unique shopping opportunities.
