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.
April – May & Sept – Oct
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.
Nov – March
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!
Best of Hungary travel tips
Looking for unique experiences, off-the-beaten-track places and important things to know about traveling in Hungary? We share what we know about them:
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.
Best of the Hungarian countryside
Just like in any country, you need to explore beyond the capital city to get a more realistic and diverse view of Hungary – and to find some barely known treasures: pretty cities and towns, castles, national parks, lush green forests and lovely landscapes.

We’ve been travelling together for more than 9 years, recently with our 2 years old little boy who made us an adventurous trio. We have extensively travelled throughout Europe and the USA, especially California. We’ve had a wonderful campervan trip in Australia where we dream to return.
After living in Budapest for 6 years, we moved to British Columbia this September, and we can’t wait to explore Canada, this vast country that’s our new home for now. We’d also like to visit more places in the USA, Central and South America in the near future.
