The prices for the gig of the world wide superstar DJ range from 8.990 HUF to 15.000 HUF for a VIP ticket. At the moment David Guetta is for sure the most successful and famous male artist and producer worldwide. His events are always sold out so that you should hurry up to get your ticket for the David Guetta Concert in Budapest. David Guetta has been playing already on Balaton Sound this year and according to the reactions on Facebook or Twitter it was a blast.

Children Train (Gyermekvasút)

Nov 5, 2011 0

The Children Train in Budapest (or as it is called in Hungarian Gyermekvasút) is a historical train from the Hungarian national railway company Máv which is still operated on a separated route and the interesting thing on it children are running it. Well not actually driving the train but all the things around like checking the tickets, working on the stations etc is done by kids from the age 8 – 16 I would guess. For the children it is a kind of hobby to do so and as we know all children would like to be a train driver once they are grown up so this is a good chance to check out what it is like to drive a train and what is connected with it, all the work around. But why I am writing this here is because the Children Train is a fantastic chance for families with kids ...

Barefoot Park

Sep 14, 2011 0

The Barefoot Park (Mezítlábas Park) is, unfortunately, not located in Budapest directly but around 30 minutes by car to the south in a small village called Tabajd. So what is the Barefoot Park? The Barefoot park is a free park where on specially created lanes you are experiencing different undergrounds barefoot such as stones of different sizes, water, sand, wood and even corn cobs.The other good thing is that it is outside in the wood near a little village and during the entire walk which takes around 30 minutes (often depending on the kids) you are on the fresh air. In winter it might not be a too good idea to go there. Kids love this activity and are really interested in how the next lane will feel like and how they will solve walking there. At the end of the Barefoot Park there is a big playground for the kids ...

Jul 20, 2011 0

The Millenáris Park in Budapest is a venue for a big variety of events, concerts, exhibitions, programs for children or fairs such as the Budai Gourmet Festival or the press foto of the year exhibition. The reason for the big variety is that in Millenáris Park you have a lot of different smaller venues where those events can take place, no matter if inside or outside. Additionally there is the so called Palace of Wonders which is a constant exhibition with different physical “wonders” explained in a playful way which is extremely popular among children but also the parents are wondering about it.

Rammstein Budapest

Jul 11, 2011 0

10.11.2011 – Papp Laszlo SportArena Rammstein is most probably the most successful German band outside Germany next to Tokio Hotel and Scooter which is still performing today and now they come for a concert to Budapest again. Rammstein has been in Budapest I think 2007 the last time and even if you don’t like their music you have to admit that their live performance is a blast. I have seen Rammstein live last time they where here and the stage was full of fire, laser, special effects and other show elemets which you won’t see in any other concert. ...

Budai Gourmet Festival

Jun 21, 2011 0

The Budai Gourmet Festival in Budapest (Millenaris Park) is organized by Sziget.hu, the company organizing the Sziget Festival, Balaton Sound and the Volt Festival in Sopron as well. So it is ensured that this festival is professionally organized maybe even a bit too professional in my opinion. For the relativly high entrance fee of 2.900 HUF you are equipped with a wine glass and a payment card (based on NFC -Near Field Communication technology) in order to make your payments at the stands. This payment method seems to be very popular nowadays among festivals in Budapest, this was the case at the Pálinka Festival already, and the card will be valid for the Balaton Sound, Sziget Festival as well as the Volt Festival as well. OK, enough talk about the organizational issues, let’s jump into what the Budai Gourmet Festival has to offer in terms of Gourmet. Basically the festival ...

Tropicarium Budapest

Jun 17, 2011 0

The Tropicarium in Budapest is the biggest indoor aquarium in Central Europe and is the home of several thousand fishes, reptiles and other animals living under water or in tropical areas around the world. With thousands of visitors week by week the Tropicarium is one of the top indoor attractions of Budapest located in Campona Shopping Center and is especially popular among kids. The highlights are probably the crocodiles and the sharks swimming in a massive aquarium with a tunnel made of glass to have the best view. Though to be honest both of them are fairly boring to watch, the crocodiles are laying around and move very rarely, the sharks are swimming (they have to in order to survive) but it is the same way over and over again. Nevertheless the Tropicarium in Budapest is worth a visit if you are interested in the under water world or if ...
