Delight in over an hour of music and dancing at a Hungarian folk performance in Budapest. This authentic folk show will provide entertainment from one of the top ensembles in the country, either the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble or the Hungaria Folk Ensemble and Orchestra. Meeting at either the Danube Palace or Budai Vigadó, you’ll have the chance to soak up all the rich culture this city has to offer.
  • 1.5-hour folk show in Budapest

  • Enjoy the historical setting of either the Danube Palace or Budai Vigado performance venues
  • Be entertained by traditional Hungarian music and dance!
Depending on your selected date and venue, your evening will begin at either the Danube Palace or Budai Vigadó. The Danube Palace is a stunning neo-Baroque building from the 1890s, where you’ll enjoy performances by either the Danube Folk Ensemble or the Hungaria Folk Ensemble and Orchestra. At the Budai Vigadó, you’ll find a regal Art Nouveau interior, which hosts the Hungarian State Ensemble.
No matter which you choose, each group comprises 30 of the best artists in the country and guarantees a riveting show. The choreography derives from the dances and Hungarian folklore of village life hundreds of years ago.
Your traditional folk performance will not only entertain, but will leave you with a richer understanding of Hungary’s culture through the music, steps and vibrant costumes. The show lasts around 90 minutes with a fifteen minute intermission.

Very nice show. I experienced a number of authentic Hungarian dances. Also music was nice and original. Transportation from hotel to show venue and back was seamless and professional. Ticketing and seating were efficient. In less than 2 minutes from reaching the venue, we were on our seats.

We opted for the premium tickets which guaranteed front row seating and a hotel pick up and drop. We got everything that was promised and more. Right up in front, in the middle of the second row we sat, while we were entertained by pulsating performances by Hungary's premier dance troupes and accompanying musicians. The dresses worn by the performers and their professional adeptness had the audience spellbound. If you like cultural performances and are open to new experiences, this is definitely an activity you should consider!

Enjoyed the performance very much. It was very entertaining and the venue was great. Definitely worth the price. We stopped by the venue earlier in the day and exchanged the voucher for an actual ticket which avoided waiting in line immediately before the performance. I thought the booking with Viator was confusing about whether transportation from the hotel was included or not, otherwise would have given it 5 stars. I selected the booking without transportation but it still implied that transportation was included.

Live musical performance was fabulous. Dancers good but a bit stilted and contrived.

Top notch performance of dancing a stringed instrument group. Choreography was interesting and very entertaining. Highly recommended.

Just a little different but very entertaining.

We went to this show and had dinner on the Danube several years ago and what I remembered was a great show with great musicians so I booked our group of five couples early this month. I believe the dancers worked very hard and at first the performance was enjoyable, but then the musicians tempo and pitch became unbearable not to mention the young ladies attempt to sing. The musicians did not look like they were having any fun at all. I did like the stick dance very much. I hate to give such low remarks but everyone in our group did not want to stay past the first half so we left. I am sorry again for a bad review, but it is sincere. We did not do the dinner this time because we had been on a boat for the last seven days. My review is simply the show.
