A Guide To Your Budapest Hen Party

Where to Drink in Budapest

For hens, Budapest is the perfect destination. There is so much to do and see that every hen can come away pleased as punch. They can also come away with a nice cold glass of punch from one of the many, many amazing bars in the city.

Not only is it beautiful, but it's boozy too. The 7th District is a hen party staple and you simply have to visit a traditional ruin bar (made in the ruins of old buildings) if you want to come away from Budapest satisfied.

Spa parties are also on the hot-list, as well as "kerts" (temporary bars hosted in park or courtyards) and "borozos" (wine bars). You'll never be far from somewhere selling whatever beverage takes your fancy.

From sipping cocktails to testing health spas. GoHen spend 48hrs in Budapest.

Sights & Sounds

Sights - No trip to Budapest is really complete without a trip relaxing to a spa. It's these healing waters that brought the city's fame and fortune were built on and in August there's even a huge spa festival. It's also where many locals choose to spend New Year's Eve.
Another really curious site is the wonderful Fisherman's Bastion that look's like a Disney castle and gives incredible views over this beautiful city.

Sounds - You might not expect to find an American speakeasy in the middle of Budapest but find it you should. Fat Mo's is packed with live music, DJs fantastic food and plenty of cocktails in a lively atmosphere.
Where? Nyáry Pál u. 11
A38 is a funky bar, live music venue and art centre all set aboard a converted ship. It's a fantastic setting that draws a lively crowd with great views across the river.
Where? Petőfi Bridge

Shopping in Budapest

Retrock - Without doubt one of the city's best boutiques. Vintage, retro and designer clothes rub shoulders on the rather bohemian rails and displays. Shoes, hats, jewellery, clothes, bags and more.
Where? Anker köz 2
West End - You really can't miss this HUGE shopping centre. If you're in the city centre sooner or later you'll bump into it and find it's packed with hundreds of top stores and boutiques.
Where? You can't miss it!
Gozsdu Udvar - A great collection of independent stores bars and cafes, it's also really buzzing at night and a hummus market!

Getting Around Budapest

Hen Days

Budapest hen parties really can have their cake and eat it in this wonderfully historic, chic and adventurous city. Ice Skating, Tank Driving, Cocktail Mixing, Spa Days, Pole Dancing Lessons, Wine Tasting, you can even learn to Belly Dance. If you're looking for Budapest hen weekend laughs and a sprinkling of "bonkers!" in the city by the Danube, the world really is your Lobster. See more hen activities in Budapest.

Hen Nights

One of the most famous and romantic of European cities didn't win its fame through having quiet nights in. This is a city that loves to party with good food, good drink and good friends. We'd certainly recommend a Guided Bar Crawl to find your way around, or Guest List Nightclubbing at one of the city's hottest clubs. But if you really want to party in style head down the Danube on a wonderful and memorable River Disco Cruise. See more party highlights...

Quickfire Budapest Hen Do FAQs

Is Budapest Known for Partying?

Not only is Budapest famed worldwide for partying, it's famed for its own unique brand of partying! Yes, you can hang out in ruin pubs (bars opened in war-destroyed buildings), sample a selection of insanely fine wines, and embrace a European feel by trying the delicious Hungarian cuisine.

What is a Popular Hungarian Dish?

One thing all Hungarian restaurants share in common is having goulash on their menu. It is a hearty and warm stew filled with beef, paprika, onions, and potatoes served for as little as €6 per bowl. The perfect way to line those stomachs ahead of another big night in the ruin bars.

What is the Best Time of Year to Party in Budapest?

July and August bring the hottest weather, but they also bring the most tourists seeing the price of hotels and flights shoot up. May and June are the time to go with the city beginning to come alive and bars and clubs packing out with the city's regular party people.

How Much Does Clubbing Cost in Budapest?

Admission to clubs is never particularly expensive (1000-1500 HUF or about €3-€5) and drinks when you're inside will be cheap compared to clubbing in the UK, so you won't have to break the bank in Budapest for a night out.

How Long is a Flight from the UK to Budapest?

You can get directly from the UK to Budapest in around 2.5-3 hours. Be sure to check if your nearest airport offers flights – some may require you to change at another airport.

Can Women Travel Safely in Budapest?

Budapest is generally considered to be safe for female travellers. Just make sure you follow the golden rules, such as sticking with your hen group when exploring and keeping an eye on your drinks at all times. For more info on staying safe in Hungary, visit the Gov website for the latest advice.

How Many Nights Should I Stay in Budapest?

Whilst you can fly to Budapest for just a couple of days, we'd recommend going for three or four nights so you can tick off everything you could want to see. Since the start of 2022, the majority of the groups who booked with GoHen booked a 4-night stay, so they could see the sights, conquer the activities and enjoy a few nights on the town!

It's time for a hen do in Budapest!

If you're into your symbols and metaphors, Budapest has to be one of the best cities to celebrate a wedding in. Budapest is composed of two complimentary sides, Buda and Pest, come together in a harmonious marriage to form one gorgeous, beautiful city. If you're less into the symbols, Budapest is no less of a seductive choice - with Buda providing elegance and refinement, and Pest as the city's lively beating heart, there's literally something for everyone on a Budapest hen weekend.

Why: Why should you have a Budapest hen do?

Between the two halves of Budapest, it's one of the most astounding, amazing cities in Europe. The rich culture and setting of the city create a stunning base for your party, and the bohemian city is energised by the huge number of tourists that flock there every year. Between the two halves of the city, everything you could need on a hen weekend is provided. Pest is lively, colourful and busy where you'll find an unstoppable nightlife, the best restaurants, and many of the top tourist attractions keeping this half of the city pumping and buzzing with energy all day long. Pest is the reason that Budapest so frequently turns up on lists of the best nightlife in Europe - it just never stops! In contrast, Buda is sophisticated and relaxed, ideal for a quieter hen group looking for a tranquil and serene stay in the spas.

Oh, had we not mentioned the spas? Yeah, Budapest's been knows as the 'City of Spas' since 1934, with over 118 thermal springs in the city. With spas for relaxing and spas for partying, you've never taken a bath like it.

What: What to do in Budapest?

You mean aside from partying literally all day, or spending the weekend soaking in a naturally hot thermal spa? Well, we weren't kidding when we said that there was something for everyone. Budapest mixes the luxurious with the lively, with everything from wine tasting to wake boarding, and back again. The nightlife is frankly decadent... and, even better, incredibly cheap, making for some wild nights out too.

A good Budapest hen weekend plan will let you see and do the best daytime activities that the city has to offer, whilst leaving you energy for the nights. We'd suggest something fairly active in the morning, like a dance class or paintballing session, to break the ice and get everyone warmed up. A break for lunch, before you do a little sightseeing - Budapest is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, there's no shortage of things to see. Try a city bus tour instead to see the best of the city, accompanied by an expert guide. Dinner followed by some cocktails or wine is a brilliant start to the night. A guided pub crawl gets the party well under way, and guest list entry to the top nightclub in the city tops off the whole hen party! A stop in the spas Sunday morning to recharge, and you're done!

When: When's the best time to visit Budapest?

As well as the fantastic activities and nightlife, a Budapest hen do also offers year-round entertainment in the form of concerts, fairs, festivals, sporting events and national celebrations. Visit during the Budapest Spring Festival, the largest cultural event in Hungary, or the Sziget Festival, one of the largest music festivals in the world. Perhaps most excitingly the Budapest International Wine Festival takes place in September up on Castle Hill and it attracts tens of thousands of visitors who want to sample Hungarian wines, meet notable wine makers and enjoy a range of folk music.

Shop: Budapest shopping areas and recommendations

If you're after traditional Hungarian goods then you'll find a plethora of embroidered clothes, handmade dresses, pottery and porcelain, especially around the Castle District and on Gellert Hill. For more upmarket shopping head to Pest's chic shopping street, Vaci Street. To experience true Hungarian life you should also pay a visit to the Great Market Hall, where you'll find a hub of activity and stalls selling all manner of food and goods. If it's designer pieces you're after then Andrassy Avenue is the place for you - there's all manner of famous designer shops (Gucci, Armani, Louis Vuitton etc) as well as exclusive gift shops and chic cafes.
