About THE AQUINCUM HOTEL BUDAPEST
The Aquincum Hotel Budapest is located in a cosy and charming area alongside the river Danube, on the Buda side of this magnificent city and across the river from the serene Margaret Island, with its famous thermal waters.
The Hotel is surrounded by medieval streets, wine bars, restaurants and its own green park. The main feature of this business and leisure property is its well renowned natural spa, which derives its therapeutic water directly from Margaret Island.
With its panoramic views of the Buda Hills, 310 guestrooms, restaurant and bars, 14 versatile meeting rooms and 1,660 square metre Spa, the hotel provides a relaxed atmosphere for leisure visitors and a comfortable business environment for corporate guests.
If you’re thinking of heading to the Hungarian capital during winter, Budapest comes alive at Christmas. With festivities starting earlier and earlier, there’s plenty of opportunities to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
There are 12 food and drink stalls in the middle of the centrally located Vörösmarty Square, flanked by 28 craft stalls selling artisanal products and crafts. Budapest may be a thriving city with pop-up cafes, craft beer bars and vintage stores, but the Christmas market, now in its 18th year, is resolutely traditional. There’s a craft-making crèche at weekends, where children aged 10+ can be left and, on Sundays at 4pm, a ceremonial lighting of an advent candle, followed by marzipan candies with Santa on the stage.
There’s also ice skating by the illuminated St Stephen’s Basilica nearby, whose smaller Christmas market opens this weekend and features a laser show on its neoclassical facade.
Budapest christmas market will be open from 23rd November to the 01st January.
