Full Tour Description

Duration: 3 hours

Our tour starts in the center of the city but quickly heads away from the main tourist hangouts and stumbles into Budapest's Jewish district, where Budapest's alternative culture is really kicking off. Just like East Berlin after the fall of the wall, Budapest's uncared for districts are fast becoming the places to be.

The tour covers a wide variety themes and topics – from Budapest's graffiti and street art culture to current politics, relevant history and personal stories, to fashion, design, architecture & the local music scene. Each tour route is different depending on what is happening in the city, but you'll visit a mixture of arts and culture centers, abandoned synagogues, independent galleries, community spaces, music venues, theatres, and make a stop for a coffee or beer in an art and coffee collective or a ruin bar come community center/bike workshop/analogue photography gallery.

As we limit the tour to small groups only, our tours have a very personal feel and you'll get to know your guide and other tour participants throughout your exploration of Budapest.

All of our guides are fully qualified and active in various areas of the alternative creative scene in Budapest and you'll end the tour in a great venue where you'll be able to pick the brain of your guide for info on great places to check out during your stay in Budapest (both mainstream/historical and more off-the-beaten-track)."
