My husband and I would like to visit your city-Budapest end of this month (March 29-31) for sighteeing. Are museums and shops open in those dates? What about the restaurants? We are worried about this matter because that is holy week.
Thank you for the question! During Easter all shops are open on Palm Sunday and throughout the entire week. On Easter Sunday (which in 2013 happens to be on March 31st) all shops are closed, but most museums remain open and so also for restaurants. On Easter Monday most Budapest museums are closed, while restaurants remain open. Shops are closed.
These are the basics concerning opening times in Budapest during Easter. It can be useful to know that the thermal baths, among them the most famous of the all, the Szechenyi thermal bath, will be open throughout the entire Easter.
Ask your Budapest question!
