The weather might not be so friendly anymore and the days are getting shorter but Budapest is beautiful in autumn, as well. You can see, hear and feel it yourself – let us give you some tips for a great fall visit in our capital city.
1. While the temperatures are still around 10°C, and the Sun is shining quite a lot, you can take a walk in the City or at Buda Castle to discover the well-known and hidden treasures of this amazing city. If you prefer something closer to nature, and you would like to enjoy the colour of the leaves, choose a nice walk at Fűvészkert (botanical garden in the 8th district) or City Park.
2. After a shorter or longer walk outside, you will be keen to drink something warm. Choose a new wave tea house or a nice café – you will find a plethora of these in the city.
3. If you feel like bingeing on something else, let me suggest you two types of drinks popular among Hungarians, as well: punch or hot wine. If you would like to taste some really good wine, visit a winery near Budapest where you can taste not only wines but stum, too. The so-called ‘must’ is unfermented grape juice, delicious and rich in vitamins.
4. When the night comes, you can choose between plenty of program possibilities. For example, you can go to theatres or concerts – the season of club concerts begins after summer. So if you visit Budapest in fall, you will have the chance to hear multiple bands in the best clubs and bars in the city.
5. Wake up early and visit a local market! You can buy nice and healthy fruits, vegetables and in some markets, delicious cakes, too. This is really not an expensive experience, but a memorable adventure, for sure. Be prepared that older marketers don’t speak English, but they are very kind. If you show them what you would like to buy, they will help you in few seconds. Flea markets are worth visiting, as well: here you can spend a lot of time (because they have so many interesting stuff) and you can buy lots of ‘small treasures’ for a couple of forints.
+1: If you are an ardent sportsman, you can exercise outdoors in the Hungarian capital, too: lots of runners and bikers can be seen in the city, for example near City Park, even if the weather is quite chilli. Why not join them?
