About The Budapest Christmas Market & Pálinka Tour:

No winter trip to Budapest would be complete without a stroll around the city's beloved Christmas Markets. Each day from November 22nd until December 31st, you're invited on a festive journey covering the Deák Ferenc Square and St. Stephen's Basilica markets.

Meet your guide outside the Pálinka Museum on Király Street and follow a scenic route past decorated shop fronts and ornamental lights. As you wander through the market stalls he/she will talk about Hungary's Christmas traditions, iconography and gastronomy. You'll visit a manger, pose for photos on Fashion Street and purchase a seasonal handicraft should you wish.
