Get one of our comfortable SWISS flights to Budapest and look forward to great times, Hungarian style. In Hungary’s capital, history and modern-day culture do not collide but live in perfect harmony.
If you first take a walk around the town on the Danube, it will look like a historic architectural jewel. Take a tour with a river boat and see the Gellért Hotel, the old castle palace on its hill over the town and the university glide by, as well as many spectacular bridges spanning the Danube.
The most important building of Budapest is St. Stephens Basilica. Stephen I was the first King and brought Christianity to Hungary.
Make time to sit down for a great dinner with Hungarian specialties that will give you enough energy for the oncoming night. From the traditional Gulyásleves and Pörkölt, variations of goulash, to Halászlé, a fish soup of river fish, and Hortobágyi palacsinta, a Hungarian chicken wrap, you will be served only the finest food in Hungarian restaurants. The Hungarian wines like the famous Tokaji and Aszu will be the perfect match for the fine food.
Budapest is a paradise on earth for the party people. The legendary nightlife is fueled by cheap drinks and an enthusiastic crowd that comes flying in from all over Europe. Parties and clubs for every music taste are scattered all over the several city districts. To some, the VIIth district of Budapest, once the Jewish quarter, is the best place to go for a wild night, but the scene is constantly shifting around town.
After some nights like this, you may be eligible for some happy hangover cure. The best idea is to visit one of the many beautiful spas that are fed by natural mineral water springs. Budapest has more than 100 bathhouses, some dating back to the Ottoman Empire or the Victorian splendor of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy of the 19th Century. Food, drink, party, wellness: The Hungarian capital has it all.
