Christman in Budapest

Hello,

I was wondering if me and my 2 mates should spend Christmas in Budapest or Prague . As per Christmas market website in Prague "Most shops, bars, restaurants, theatre, opera, sightseeing tours and tourist attractions operate as normal" , but have not been able to find if restaurants , shops , bars will be open on 24th and 25th in Budapest . We would prefer to spend Christmas in Budapest due to logistical issues but if most (almost all) places are shut on Christmas eve and Christmas in Pest then we would rather go to Prague .

Your responses will be greatly appreciated.
Alex

Bumping this as we are going to be spending xmas in Budapest also and I'd love some insight.

I'm considering this dinner cruise and concert: http://www.budapest-tourist-guide.co...-budapest.html

Very interested to find out about restaurants that might be open

You might try contacting Rosenstein Restaurant in Budapest - http://rosenstein.hu/en/ to see if they are open. It is a lovely white tablecloth restaurant, and it's "Jewish themed" so they might be open (they are not kosher and do serve pork).

We had 2 terrific dinners there in July and would highly recommend them.

a little playing around with google found this, Alex:

http://www.budapest-tourist-guide.co...-budapest.html

though we weren't there over Christmas itself [we arrived on the 27th] it seemed as if everything was open and had been over Christmas proper. After all, the hotels have to cater to their guests who still want to eat and drink over the festive season.

so I think that you would find enough places open to keep you amused, even if some places close on Christmas Day itself.
