Concert Tours to Budapest
Budapest has been a fabulous destination for our concert tours for many years with an exciting array of venues for all ensembles
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Danube’ Budapest sits astride this sparkling, wide blue river and is overlooked by the iconic Castle hill and Buda Castle, now home to the Hungarian National Gallery and Budapest History Museum. This is most definitely one of Europe’s most picturesque cities and should be visited at least once in a lifetime. Grandeur of the golden age of the late 19th century meets modern history at every corner.
The city is blessed with an abundance of hot springs. As a result, ‘taking the waters’ has been a Budapest experience since the time of the Romans. The choice of spas is extensive and provide not only healthy benefits but also fun and relaxation.
Beyond Budapest the country is still marvellously rural providing fabulous scenery almost from another age and delicious local foods.
Musically the city thrives; magnificent churches and prestigious cathedrals like St Stephen’s Basilica play host to a number of concerts throughout the year. In the summer stages and tents pop up in parks and gardens for a season of fabulous outdoor performance venues for all ensembles.

Excursions and Trips in and around Budapest to enhance your music tour experience
A tour to Budapest gives you two cities for the price of one; its two sides of the Danube, Buda and Pest were separate until 1873 and still retain their own distinct identities. In Buda you’ll find royal palaces, Ottoman-era spas and wooded hills, while over in Pest you are scattered fantastic art nouveau buildings and a resurgent Jewish quarter. Never forgetting the draw of a river cruise on the blue Danube, a visit to the Aquarium or the Aquapark we can plan an enticing excursion itinerary to complement your performance schedule.
A great way to get to know the city with a knowledgeable and interesting guide to show you all the best sights; Castle Hill, Buda Palace, Heroes Square and the Great Market hall amongst others.
It is always so beautiful to see a city by water but few European cities can rival Budapest’s glorious setting astride the Danube river as you cruise along in the sunshine.
Budapest’s most impressive 19th century national monument is highly recommended for music lovers. Gilded balustrades, a grand staircase and the auditorium with its spectacular ceiling will take your breath away.
Great for youngsters and adults alike, Aquaworld offers a chance to get out of the city and have some fun in the water!
