Meet your guide at 6pm in central Budapest, or upgrade to a private tour and enjoy an evening pickup at your centrally located Budapest hotel. Then, head into the historic Jewish quarter — where crumbling, pre-war buildings house the city’s vibrant ruin bars among the battered bricks and graffiti.
During your 3-hour walking tour, visit up to seven local bars where vintage bathtubs and abandoned cars provide the setting for an unforgettable night on the town. Visit old cellars and once-derelict warehouses, and enjoy drinks and snacks in up to five of them.
As you explore with your guide, learn of the role the ruin bars play in gentrifying otherwise forgotten corners of Budapest. Gain insight into their artistic, cultural, and gastronomic influence, and learn how the bars became so popular.
