2023 Budapest Post-Cruise Day to Day Overview (click here for details)

Day 1: Budapest
FEATURED EXCURSION: Budapest walking tour with Rock Hospital
Explore the Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum, a former emergency hospital and nuclear bunker located underneath Buda Castle Hill. This museum pays homage to the almost six-mile stretch of interconnected caves and cellars that date back to World War II. After, take the elevator up to the Castle District for a stroll around. Enjoy panoramic views of Pest across the way, and walk along famed museums and attractions, like Matthias Church. Marvel at its breathtaking architecture, beautiful stained-glass windows, and golden frescoes.

Discover a side of Hungary that is oft overlooked today—the country’s excellent wines. Once a winemaking powerhouse, Hungary’s position in European viticulture took a backseat in the 19th and 20th centuries, in large part due to a phylloxera blight that destroyed much of their crops in the 1880s and communist era policies. Fortunately for modern travelers and wine lovers, winemaking in Hungary is beginning to boom once again. Sample some locally produced wines for yourself on our excursion today, beginning with a visit to the Torley Champagne Factory and concluding with a tasting at a countryside winery in Etyek.

Day 2: Budapest
The Great Market Hall is a foodie destination in and of itself but seeing it with a local chef adds a special touch to your visit. The ground floor offers produce and butcher stands, while the upper levels provide prepared food, liquor, and souvenirs—but your chef guide will take you into the basement, where you’ll find a plethora of pickled foods. Pick out your paprika and other ingredients, then head to the modern-yet-cozy Chef Parade kitchen. You’ll prepare a traditional Hungarian soup, learn the secret of making featherlight dumplings to go with your main course (whether it’s chicken paprikash or pork pörkölt, it will require ample amounts of Hungarian paprika), and try your hand at making a typical Hungarian dessert. It’s a delicious way to discover classic Magyar cooking.

Day 3: Budapest
It’s time to check out of the hotel and head to the Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport for your trip home. We hope you will enjoy the memories you’ve made for years to come.
