Budapest is gorgeous: the buildings are impressive, the views from Buda are breathtaking, and I can wander through the city for hours at the time without getting bored. The winter in Budapest can be a little cold to be outside a lot (-20°C last January!), but there are also different experiences in Budapest during winter than during summer.
Winter is cold, but also very cozy, warm, and festive. So throw on all your clothes (I’m not even kidding), and go out with friends and family to enjoy the cold and atmosphere. The mulled wine or hot chocolate is extra enjoyable afterward! I put together a list five things to do in Budapest during winter.
