Christmas Market

Christmas Market by TopBudapestOrg
One of the Most Popular Christmas Fairs in Europe.
On the 20th November Vörösmarty Square in the centre of Budapest – affectionately known as the Paris of the East, is transformed into a festive market place. Cottage style wooden stalls, mulled wine, cinnamon and honey cookies are the order of the day creating a unique and very special seasonal atmosphere.With over 100 exhibitors displaying hand-made products and gifts, exhibitions and other cultural and music programmes the Christmas market is an ideal place to identify unusual gifts, crafts, paintings and glass pieces.Your will power will be tested as you smell the delightful traditional Hungarian cuisine of sausages and meats along with the fresh bread “lángos” which is baked in the traditional “Töki” clay oven. For deserts you can sample the caramelised pastry horns and  a selection of strudels.

Should all this be not enough, visitors of the square are continuously entertained by cavalcade of Hungarian folk music, folk dance, classical music, children’s programmes and concerts. The organizers are preparing special surprises and accompanying events for the anniversary year, making this year’s Christmas in Budapest a truly unforgettable experience.

Between 21st and 23rd December a small Bethlehem is created with a crib and live animals.

Every year around 600,00 visitors visit the Christmas market.

Smaller Christmas markets can be found elsewhere in Budapest at Liszt Ferenc ter and at Nyugati ter.
