Officially voted as the 2nd most beautiful Christmas market in Europe last year, the annual Advent Feast at the Basilica, for the 9th time, turns Budapest’s Basilica Square into a festive wonderland, evoking the sights and sounds of Christmas. Besides the unique 3D light paint projected on the facade of the Basilica, the spectacular seasonal meeting point offers free skating, special hand crafted items, local food and drink specialties until January 1.
Organizers have made every effort to present a premier selection of gifts and delicacies, gourmet foods and spirits, even those with food allergies can choose from a wide array of vegetarian, gluten free, diabetic and vegan dishes. Every day between 5.00PM and 10.00PM, the facade of the Basilica will be flooded with lights and you will be able to admire one of the largest 3D light paintings in Central Europe. In addition, each day, the ice rink will be welcoming children (under 14-years) with ice-skate rentals available and skating lessons during the weekends, all free of charge.
