Full description
Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience.

Get ready to raise a glass at a few of the best beer bars Budapest has to offer. Start your tour in a one-of-a-kind steampunk bar, with a totally unique vibe and detailed steampunk-style interior to match. Have your first Hungarian beer and some local snacks to soak up your beers for the evenings.

Next, explore some of the small streets of the Palace Quarter and experience the area's late 19th-century architecture en-route to your second beer-hopping spot. One of the most popular pubs these days among locals, on the edge of the Danube, housed in a cavernous former warehouse. Get some beautiful views of the Buda side overlooking the Danube from the bar's scenic waterside terrace. 

It's all about traditional beer-drinking on your next stop as you travel back in time to a Hungarian pub that's known as "kocsma". Nowadays you usually only find such venues in the countryside. Here, you will experience the laid-back, old-style pub scene of days gone by and enjoy some local bar snacks. 

From there, you’ll cross the World Heritage-listed Andrássy Avenue and make your way to the pièce de résistance — tasting delicious, famous local goulash soup and Hungarian strudels in an authentic restaurant near Saint Stephen Cathedral. You’ll finish your Budapest food tour happily full of some of the best Budapest food in town.
