Crossing the river Danube on the Chain bridge, walking along the illuminated Zrínyi street and arriving to the heart of the city; Budapest’s spectacular Christmas market, the Advent Feast at the Basilica. This is a holiday program not to miss in Budapest during the winter season.
The spectacular Christmas market in the heart of Budapest offers plenty of new experiences during the holiday. Next to the St Stephen’s Basilica, one of the eminent sights of the Hungarian capital, the square and the city is enlightened with decoration and in the evenings a special video mapping show is projected on the monumental façade.
Get into the mood for Christmas together taking a winter walk and looking for presents among the high quality, handmade artisans or enjoying enticing delicacies of the season. Gingerbreads and chimney cakes, hot wine and punch, plenty of Hungarian specialties make up the beautiful setting even in Zrínyi street this year.
The Advent Feast is far more than a market, it is about the experience to share with your beloved. The angels of the market surprise and encompass our guests with care and attention to enhance this message of the advent. The 200 sqm skating rink and the nicely warm hütte – a quiet place to rest, also festive cultural and charity programs help to evoke Christmas atmosphere and to spend memorable time in Budapest.
The market is still open until 1st January 2015 at St. Stephen’s Basilica, Szent István square, Budapest.
