Budapest has several fantastic Christmas markets. One of them, which stands out as the top, is the Budapest Christmas Market by the Basilica (aka St Stephen’s Cathedral), see the photo below.
In 2016 / 2017, the Budapest Christmas market is open on Dec 31 and Jan 1 too. There are two nice markets next to each other and despite the Christmas holidays, the markets reopen on Dec 27 to keep open until Jan 1.
Budapest Advent Market St Stephen’s Basilica
On Dec 31 besides the usual nice programs, there is usually a charity event.
If you are enjoying your New Year break in Budapest, Hungary, visit the last days of the festive Budapest Christmas Market in the city center of Budapest on St Istvan Square. You can see the domes of the Basilica from far away on the flat Pest side of Budapest.
