It’s that time of the year again: at We Love Budapest, we have just released our winter print edition. And it’s free, so be quick and grab one before they are all gone. Whether you live in Budapest and need new tips or just visiting, our pocket guide has got you covered. Pick up your free copy for insider tips to all things Budapest at cafés, restaurants and shops, key tourist-information points and prime hotels.

Where are the best places to eat out? Which drinks do Hungarians sink on a night out? How do you hunt for retro treasure in town? Where can you make a splash in this city of spas? What is the Christmas tram and where can you catch it? What kind of treats should you try at Christmas markets? Countless questions like these arise when you are new in town, but good old Budapest can still surprise you, even if you think you know it like the back of your hand. With this little guide, you can live like a local, even if you are only here for a day. And it’s completely free, it’s our gift to you, a guide to the city we know and love best.

This new edition is decked out in cool Christmassy style completely geared for the colder months, with some extra content for those who just can’t wait for the first rays of spring sunshine. Altogether six chapters – focusing on sights, dining, art and culture, spas and sport, shopping and nightlife –  guide you around Budapest, with hot tips in easy-to-use Top List formats. A bonus chapter about the Danube Bend describes classic day-trip destinations from town. Interviews with local movers and shakers, and background explainers, bring Hungarians and their country a bit closer to you.
