When to Visit

If you don't mind the crowds and want to enjoy balmy weather, consider visiting Hungary during the summer months from June through to August. This high season is ideal for experiencing everything from wine festivals to lake visits.

For travellers seeking a blend of pleasant weather and fewer crowds, late spring or early autumn, from April to May and September to October, offer a great balance. During this time, you could enjoy Hungary's countryside walks and sightseeing in a more tranquil setting.

Don't discount the winter months from November to March. Those willing to brave the somewhat chilly temperatures might catch the magic of Hungary's Christmas markets or visit one of the country’s many thermal baths for a warm escape.
