Lumina Park is a fantastic place to be in Budapest. It first opened in October 2022 and remained open until March 2023. Since you see constructions with beautiful light decorations the concept only works during the winter months, meaning that it is only available in this period of the year. Due to the success, Lumina Park recently announced that it will return in the coming year(s). But, they will also come with even more, because as of 2023/24, a new addition is the Lumina Christmas Park.
Lumina Christmas Park will remind visitors of the original Lumina Park, only that the focus will be on Christmas and on bringing the Christmas atmosphere to the visitors. While Lumina Park is at Margaret Island in the Palatinus Bath, Lumina Christmas Park is in Romaifürdő, a little bit further outside the city center of Budapest (in the direction towards Szentendre).
In Lumina Christmas Park there will be a postal office, a Christmas village, an ice world, the Aurora Borealis (northern light), Christmas tree forests, Santa Clauses, and everything needed for people of all ages to have a good time.

How can I get to Lumina Christmas Park?
It isn’t very complicated. The easiest way is to travel by metro to Göncz Árpád Városközpont (blue metro) and then to travel by bus number 34 from there until the stop Rómaifürdő. The same method can be used to travel back to the city center of Budapest after you have visited the Christmas park.
How much does it cost to visit Lumina Christmas Park?
We don’t know yet, but it is expected to be a little bit cheaper than the normal Lumina Park. Until we get the exact information, our guess is that the entrance fee will be between 3000-4000 HUF per person.
Will there be a Christmas market in the Christmas Park?
Lumina Christmas Park is not a place for shopping. There will be some stalls where you can buy something to eat and drink, but it is not meant to be a Christmas market. If you want to do Christmas shopping or enjoy hot wine and all the things you can expect at a Christmas market, read about the traditional Christmas markets in Budapest instead.
