When to go
Budapest is a year-round destination. The Christmas markets are particularly fun and great for getting into the festive spirit. The city looks particularly beautiful in Spring, especially around April when the magnolia trees come into blossom. Some of the best weather for sight-seeing can be had in autumn, when days are generally mild and clear.
