If you're lucky enough to have your hen do during the festive season, then Budapest is one of the best places to experience the magic of Christmas. Their markets are teeming with twinkling stalls, majestic architecture and all the fantastic winter wonderland vibes!
With GoHen, you'll get your own guide who will take you around the markets so you don't get lost. You'll also enjoy a hot mug of mulled wine each to keep warm, as well as a delicious Kürtskalács! For those of you yet to experience this sweet treat, a Kürtskalács is a chimney shaped spit cake, grilled and covered in caramelised sugar and walnuts. This sweet pastry is a firm favourite amongst locals and tourists alike, and if you have a sweet tooth, you can have them filled with chocolate and/or cream! (Everyone knows that naughty but nice treats are allowed on hen-parties, plus it's Christmas, so it's doubly acceptable to indulge!).
Budapest hosts multiple festive markets (because there's no such thing as too much Christmas spirit!), which begin mid-November and run all the way until December 24th. So if you're the sort of person who has your tree up as soon as Halloween's over and done with, you can step into Christmas in good time here in Buda!
The twinkling lights, festive cheer and unique stalls have attracted thousands of people for years, brightening up the darkest month of the year. The romantic, vintage-looking carousels, the cute little huts, and cosy Christmas lights are very Insta-friendly. (And, of course, there's the obligatory group photo in front of the gorgeous central Christmas tree!).
You'll find loads of little gems at the markets which showcase lots of Hungarian folk art; traditional, hand-crafted gifts; and products by local designers and artists. You'll even get your own market mug as a little souvenir! If you want to get ahead of your Christmas shopping, spend quality time with the girls, and have a holly jolly Christmas, these markets are a must.
