Programme

Day 1: Individual arrival in Budapest. Transfer to the resort from airport or train station. Over welcome cocktails, you’ll get to know the resort and other participants.

Day 2: First you can explore on foot the Burgviertel area of the city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is near the Hapimag resort. After lunch, you’ll take a city tour to discover the main sites of Budapest and enjoy coffee and cake at the “Ruszwurm” cake shop.

Day 3: You’ll stroll through the heart of the city centre and visit the Art Nouveau house Bedö Ház. It was built in 1903, during the Secession, and gives visitors an authentic view of urban life during “peacetime”.

Day 4: At the top of Gellért Hill, you’ll enjoy a beautiful view of the rock church before a tour of the covered market. You can wander through market stalls with typical Hungarian products and specialities. After lunch, the trip continues to Gödöllö, where you’ll visit Sissi’s former summer residence – the second-largest baroque palace in the world.

Day 5: In a champagne cellar in Budafok, you’ll learn more about the production of sparkling wine and try a glass. You can ring in the New Year amongst beautiful glittering lights on board a cruise ship. A buffet-style dinner is accompanied by Hungarian folk music, and after dinner you have the option to try dancing yourself. On the stroke of midnight, you can toast the new year against the magnificent backdrop of the parliament building. New Year’s Eve is rounded off with small traditional midnight dishes, before the cruise ship docks again at 1.00 a.m. Transfer back to the resort.

Day 6: Today, you’ll be able to sleep in and enjoy the new year in comfort. Energetic guests can join an optional excursion to Puszta. In the evening, you can enjoy an exclusive New Year’s Day concert and a champagne reception at the resort.

Day 7: You’ll visit three unusual places on an excursion to the Danube Bend. Esztergom, one of Hungary’s oldest cities, with its basilica and the crypt that houses the grave of Cardinal Mindszenty. Plus the artist city of Szentendre and Visegrád, a former base of Hungarian royalty.
