10 best things to do in Budapest this summer

  • 2021 július 01.

With summer now upon us, we’ve put this list of top 10 highlights together for you to get the best out of the sweltering season. Spas, ice cream, festivals and outdoor sports, they’re all here. Note that many events and places require you to be carrying an Immunity Certificate – always check before you head out. Enjoy! - Source:

Admire amazing doorways

Thanks to ace photographer Krisztián Bódis, we have been chronicling some of the most beautiful entranceways in Budapest, from striking wrought-iron gates to esoteric Art-Nouveau doorways full of winding shapes and mosaic detailing. If you’re looking for easy and unique sightseeing around the city, with fewer tourists around, why not go treasure-hunting for these gorgeous lesser-sung attractions? Check out the details here and here!


Attend a festival

For a long time this spring, it was uncertain whether staging any kind of festival would be possible this year – and, certainly, the larger ones (most notably Sziget) will be missed. On the bright side, smaller, more family-friendly ones can take place. Around Budapest this summer, you’ll find Kolorádó (23-26 June), the Waldorfeszt (1-4 July), the Bánkitó Fesztivál (8-10 July), the LB27 Reggae Camp (27-31 July) and the Katlan Festival (23-25 July).


Browse an outdoor market

Even before the pandemic, outdoor produce markets across the city were experiencing a renaissance – now with even more universal appreciation of safe shopping, their popularity has only grown. Check out places such as Pancs GasztroplaccCzakó Market, the Római parti Piac, the Zugló Bread Community, the MOM Organic MarketBókay Piac, a Szimpla Háztáji market and the Infopark Produce Market.


Catch a live band

At last, we can finally enjoy the thrill of live music again! With the exception of Dürer Kért, which has just moved, all the major concert venues in Budapest are active once again. There are loads of great options to choose from – we recommend checking out Budapest ParkBarba Negra Track, the A38 BoatKobuci kertAkvárium KlubTRIP Boat, the Fonó Club, and the Budapest Jazz Club just to scratch the surface. Looking for specific performances? How about Képzelt Város x TÖRZS at the A38, or 30Y hisztori + ESTI KORNÉL at Budapest Park? Or maybe Grand Mexican Warkock at Kobuci kert as they return to Budapest?


Go to a historic castle

There are several castles near the capital that have been recently renovated, so it’s worth paying them a visit even if you’ve seen them before. Among the one we have written are Brunswick Castle in Martonvásár, Schossberger Castle in Tura, Teleki-Tisza Castle in Nagykovács and Klebelsberg Castle in Pesthidegkút.


Pack a picnic

Nothing is more classically summer than a picnic, and it’s also a Covid-safe way to have a little group fun. As we are finally able to reunite with our friends and family, it’s time to pack up our favourite snacks and find a green area in town to enjoy some rustic outdoor dining. Not sure where to go? We've made a list of 12 top picnic spots in Budapest to give you some ideas!


Party in the sun

Summer is for fun, and Budapest offers all sorts of open-air daytime parties this year to chase away any remaining winter blues. Early curfews during the major lockdowns encouraged people to move late-night revelries into earlier hours, but that’s not to say young folks were oblivious to the perks of a daytime party before such restrictions. Now you can enjoy parties at venues like CityMatinéLick the Click!Cruisin' PortSun & Soda and Sunday Session.


Take a city walk

This year we are celebrating our tenth anniversary, so we’ve created a series of city walks. Come with us as we take you around the lesser-known side of Art Nouveau, then get lost around the secret passageways of Pest. And with much fewer tourists this summer, you won't have to negotiate selfie-taking Scandinavians to see all the architectural detail!


Splash at the spa

With temperatures climbing into the 30s, there’s only one thing on our minds: water! The month of June is especially good for spa enthusiasts, as baths around the capital are offering 20% off tickets to holders of BKK transport passes. Whether you prefer the luxury of spas or the splashing fun of outdoor pool complexes, the city is full of options to cool off from the summer heat.
