Best time to visit Hungary
Hungary follows a continental climate with four seasons.
Days are long and warm (with occasional storms), and all of Europe is on holiday, so prices are high and places are flooded with tourists, especially Budapest and Lake Balaton.
Weather is fine, and the number of visitors is lower. This is definitely the best time to visit Budapest. Seasonal forests are also pretty – with blooming flowers or fall colors.
Winters are cold, but snow is rare. Visit Budapest if you look for cheap prices and don’t mind the colorless parks. December is Christmas market season though!

The best things to see and do in Budapest
Budapest is a popular tourist destination – and it has everything to be one: rich cultural heritage, amazing architecture, fabulous riverside panorama, a lively vibe, good food (yeah, ruin pubs, too), and tons of cultural and art events. In our very biased opinion, it also has the most beautiful Parliament building in the world.
Budapest has something for everyone – no matter if you visit it for the first time, for the fifth time or you live here. It never gets boring.
