TOP 5 COOLEST THINGS TO DO IN BUDAPEST OVER THE AUTUMN

We know all of you who come to Budapest to Sparty are different, with diverse tastes and likes and preferences for a relaxing or enriching pastime in the Hungarian capital. We picked the five coolest programmes over the autumn period to suit your passion – be it health, sweets, history or simply strolling outdoors.

  • Fresh start for the health-conscious:

    Yoga Brunch – Panorama Yoga in Rudas Thermal Bath

    If you want to make your Budapest Bath experience even more complete, you can start your day the sporty way right after Sparty! On 29th October, the panorama restaurant on top of Rudas Bath hosts Yoga Brunch, a 60-minute relaxing yoga class, spiced up by a hole bunch of healthy food afterwards – to the beautiful backdrop of the the Danube and the Pest-skyline. If you are up for the challenge, registration at the restaurant’s Facebook page is necessary.

  • If You Have a Sweet Tooth:

    Authentic Confectionaries on Either Side of the Danube

    OK, health is important, but you can’t miss Hungary’s sweet seductions made to perfection, on whichever side of the Danube you are stationed. On the Pest Side, the historic Confectionary of Swiss-born Hungarian confectioner, Emile Gerbeaud, the inventor of several Hungarian cakes, on Vörösmarty Square is not to be missed. On the Buda-side, up in the Castle District, at the smaller but even more archaic Ruszwurm let yourself seduced by their special, vanilla-flavoured custard cake (“krémes”).

  • For history fanatics:

    Underground Time Travel

    If you are into historic places, you surely won’t miss the Castle District. Why don’t you explore what’s underground? You may descend into the cavities of the hill, where you can find a maze of chambers constituting the Hospital in the Rock Museum, a preserved World War II shelter.

  • If you are in for a little Thrill:

    Imagine Budapest: thematic walking tour on the history of crime in the Castle

    Finding fun facts about a city is easy nowadays, even without a proper guide book. You can read about them online or have an application tell you where to go. But these options will never reach up to the experience with Willie Slick, who leads a two-hour walking tour through the history of crime in the past centuries, up in the Castle District. Rumours, fascinating stories and exciting surprises. To join Willie, you need to drop the crew a line:

  • If you defy the elements and still like it outdoors:

    Secret Japanese Garden in the Heart of the City

    If the weather is not dreadful, take a romantic stroll on the 2.5 kilometers long and up to 500 meters wide island in the centre of Budapest. The island, named after Princess Margaret, a nun in the Dominican convent on the island back in the 1200s is a real heaven for recreation. Running paths, benches with a view, ruins from the Dominican church and convent, and a recently revived Japanese Garden all promise a meaningful diversion from the big city.
