Yuletide spirit of jolly old times
Budapest Christmas Fair

The sweet scent of kurtos kalacs and mulled wine. Servings of sausage. Arts and crafts stalls. The sound of chatter and laughter, music. A lavishly decorated tree. You’re at a Christmas fair.

Stall after stall, the biggest Christmas fair in Budapest brings Yuletide spirit to the heart of the city, for a month. For unique Christmas gifts from hand knitted wool clothes to wooden toys, peruse the offerings of arts and crafts designers, all certified by the national association of artisans. Try the season’s sweet treat, kürtős kalács and mulled wine. Feast on sausage, fresh bread and pickles. Enjoy folk dance and music performances. Or stroll around the square with friends for a jolly old time. Merry Christmas!
