Do you want to taste some wine or local sparkling wine? Does it sound tempting to visit a festival with a very large percentage of locals visiting? This is the festival to visit!
There are lots of fantastic festivals arranged in Budapest every year, but many of them are packed with tourists, and too expensive for the locals. But, if you come to the Budafok Champagne and Wine Festival you will discover something completely different.
First of all, the festival is free to visit. All you need to do is to travel on tram 47 from Deak Ferenc Ter / Astoria / Fovam tér, and travel to the end station. You will then be in the festival area and from here you can walk around accompanied by thousands of locals as you taste wine, champagne, and spirits, or eat some cool Hungarian festival food.
Hungary’s most famous champagne maker, Törley, has a factory in this area. They are heavily taking part in the festival, and as a visitor, you can also visit their factory to taste and to learn.

The festival starts on Friday evening, and it is open throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday. There will be outdoor concerts on both days, ensuring the atmosphere is fantastic!
We can warmly recommend this program to everyone who visits Budapest in this period! If you cannot come, you might want to join us on some other wine tasting. You can read more about wine-tasting programs in Budapest and outside Budapest right here.
