Budapest Christmas Markets

Budapest Christmas Markets

Nancy and I booked our Danube cruise so that we could see the Christmas Markets and finish up with a celebration of  Christmas with our daughter in Bedfordshire, UK. We thought that visiting Christmas markets would be an extra tour to our cruise itinerary. It turns out that every city and possibly town has its own Christmas market. And most cities have more than one site where the booths are set up. Here are some pictures of our first experience with Christmas markets in Budapest.

Streets are turned into pedestrian malls. All of these pictures were taken about 3:30 in the afternoon.
