Glühwein at the Christmas Market in Budapest

I haven’t been to the Christmas Market in Budapest for 5 years, it was time to do so. I went always to the Vörösmarty Square so I know that, that is the biggest one.

Now I went to the brand new one at the Basilica (it has been there for just some couple of years). There are a lot of small shops with souvenirs, a small ice skate ring and dozens of small restaurants where you can try the typical Hungarian Christmas food sitting on a bench being frozen 🙂

The light and sound show seems to be on every half hour. You can enjoy it till 2nd of January 2017.

Merry Christmas! Enjoy the pictures!
