A Perfect Day in Budapest


Budapest, Hungary

Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest recommends the perfect day in the city, beginning with breakfast at KOLLÁZS Brasserie & Bar amid its beautifully restored Secessionist interior; the coffee and blintzes in particular are superb. Then head over the Chain Bridge to explore Buda and the Castle District, the oldest, most atmospheric part of the city with its winding streets of medieval and Baroque architecture. Have a leisurely lunch at 21 Magyar Vendéglő, located in a small alley near the Buda Castle with modern 21st century Hungarian cuisine. Cross back into Pest on the opposite side of the Danube, and ending the day with a stroll through the Jewish Quarter and visit the extensively renovated and architecturally fascinating Gozsdu Courtyard.

Trek this city on foot, bike, Segway or Trikke. Ask the Concierge to arrange private or group biking tours with professional guides, which offer a more intimate visit. If all this exploring puts you in the mood for a refreshing dip, visit the Széchenyi Bath and Spa, where you can play chess on floating chequerboards.

Finally, round off the day with a night at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music or at Müpa, followed by a late supper at Onyx, indulging in one of the restaurant’s superb tasting menus or the extensive wine list.
