Merry Christmas! Dress warm and bring your holiday cheer to this Christmas-themed tour of Budapest. Hungary is a Christian country, so Christmas is celebrated by almost all inhabitants. You’ll learn about local holiday traditions and why Santa Claus comes on the 6th of December — not Christmas Eve.   You’ll start your special Budapest tour at Oktogon Square, a common meeting point for city locals, before heading out to the non-touristy markets where we’ll show you the most typical of Hungarian Christmas goods. Along the way, you’ll learn about the history of this inner city area.   Next, your Budapest tour will pass by the Jewish Quarter, where you’ll have the chance to warm up in a nice Hungarian bar before carrying on to see the Hungarian State Opera House and Saint Stephen Basilica.   After that, you’ll continue to the next market for more Christmas customs. You’ll get to sample some typical Christmas cake and learn why Hungarian families traditionally eat fish at this time of year.   As your Budapest tour strolls along the river, you’ll end up at a Christmas market that’s ranked one of the best in Europe. Celebrate the season with your new traveller friends under the biggest Christmas tree in Budapest.   Finally, your Budapest walking tour will end at one of the most charming Christmas markets in the city’s downtown, where you can stay as long as you like and keep exploring the culinary delights of an authentic Hungarian Christmas.
