Exploring the City
There is so much to experience in Budapest year-round, from music festivals and ruin pubs in summer to Christmas markets and ice skating in winter. Pack a few key items to be prepared.
- While there is an efficient metro, Budapest is a fantastically walkable city with stunning architecture at every turn. Bring comfortable, stylish shoes and spend your days strolling through the city.
- Temperatures can soar north of 90 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, so bring sunglasses and consider a smart-looking hat to ward off the sun.
- Even in chilly winter temperatures, locals are outside braving the elements to café-hop and shop. Bring warm layers to be prepared for chilly breezes off the Danube.
