Being lost in admiration of the unique panorama of Budapest on the banks of the Danube, to taste the wine of kings, to fill yourself up in Pannonhalma with the spirit of the Benedictines, to experience infinity in the "puszta", these are all experiences in itself that are worth traveling for. No matter when you come, Hungary is magical, but if you’re still wondering which season is the best, it is time to visit and decide.
From March the country springs into colour with spring festivals, blooming flowers and more and more outdoor activities. Summer tends to be rather hot, though you can do more sightseeing due to longer days. In the warm evenings you can enjoy many outdoor events, or just sit in a terrace of a café or restaurant. Wandering around Hungary in autumn is even more enjoyable. The falling leaves in thousands of colours of yellow, red and green, the fresh and mildly cool air with late summer sunshine borrow a special athmosphere what you can not miss. Do not be surprised if you bump into a pleasant wine or food festival somewhere in the country. The atmosphere of Advent season takes you to another dimension as big and small squares give place to Christmas markets in the country. In festive mood decorated and lighted up streets await you while the smell of delicious foods, sweet holiday cakes and mulled wine fly around in the air.
