Visiting Budapest in Winter

By Sasha, February 2013

No reviews, be the first!

Sprawled across the River Danube, the two halves of Budapest look fetching in winter under a coating of snow, but temperatures drop well below freezing so wrap up warm. But there is plenty to do and accommodation prices slide down in Hungary after New Year.

1. Skiing

Although Hungary is not famous as a skiing destination, it is possible to board and ski at Dobogókő, with just a few runs and T-bar lifts. Check the snow reports before you make the 50-minute journey from Budapest. Closer to the city, skiing is sometimes available at Normafa, although facilities are very limited. Both areas are good for inspiring confidence in novice skiing families.
