What to do in Budapest in Spring?

As spring heralds a boost of new energies, the city of Budapest too comes visibly alive to enjoy the refreshing sun and breeze of the season. Come out with us!

15 March, a national holiday, marks the anniversary of the 1848-49 revolution, and every year special programmes make it a fun day besides the official commemoration. Visit Parliament and view the Holy Crown and Jewels, or stroll up to the castle to enjoy folk music and dance.

Budapest Spring Festival

Budapest Spring Festival

Budapest Spring Festival is a bacchanalia of diverse artistic diversions, from concerts to exhibitions, showcasing some of the most noted personalities of the art scene. From 30 March to 22 April, zigzag across Budapest to catch as many of the simultaneous programmes as you can, such as Rudolf Buchbinder’s piano recital or Budapest Art Week in several locations. The full programme is available here.

Shopping too moves outdoors: Sunday markets for local vendors take over the otherwise nightlife-heavy ruin pub Szimpla, while WAMP, the design fair, sets up shop. Browse a great selection of mostly Hungarian below-the-radar designers’ artisan work, from accessories to garments.
