Budapest Wine Festival Limited 2020

More info


The Budapest Wine Festival usually draws a big crowd, but this year safety precautions means the event will be smaller and more regulated. Tickets must be purchased for specific time slots to ensure participants don’t overcrowd the area. Nonetheless, wine lovers will enjoy tasting the premium wines and delicious food available at the festival, which takes place in the Hunyadi Courtyard of the Royal Palace.
