One of the most popular Christmas fairs in Europe awaits the lovers of winter programmes this year again in the heart of Budapest, in Vörösmarty Square.
More than 100 wooden pavilions, which will attract visitors with their unique high quality folklore and applied arts products, will be built on the square. Christmas decorations, small presents, candles, gloves, woollen hats, wrought iron and woven products are also sold here, as well as other special articles that cannot be found anywhere else. You can experience the real wonders of winter-time while enjoying tproducts that have been evaluated by a jury, and satisfying your appetite at typical Hungarian buffets, which offer mulled wine, kürtoskalács (sweet Hungarian pastry), roast chestnuts and other market snacks. When passing along the colourful and beautifully decorated rows of pavilions, it is worth walking, with mulled wine and kenyérlángos (flat bread baked in a cob oven) in your hands, to the front of the Gerbeaudcafé, where a great festive atmosphere is guaranteed due to the performances by children, folklore groups, dance houses, brass and reed bands, string orchestras and choirs.
The peak of the musical entertainment is when the Advent Calendar, which hides contemporary works of art in the windows of Gerbeaud House, is opened on Advent Days at 5 p.m. in the context of a spectacular show with chimes, fanfares and beautiful lights. There is a giant Christmas tree and an Advent wreath on the brightly lit square, which is decorated for the feast with special lighting, so that visitors to the event can experience a really intimate Advent atmosphere during weekdays as well.
It is a great pleasure that the Budapest Christmas Fair will open towards the end of November, and it looks forward its visitors until the end of December.
Visit us and be a part of the unforgettable Christmas fair, where you can buy unique Christmas presents as well!
Buying presents can also be a great family adventure, because even children will have fun here. The organisers provide events for children, with puppet shows, handicraft areas, playhouses, Santa Claus games and other exciting entertainment opportunities.
