FHT Visit Beautiful Budapest

Here at FHT, we regularly carry out inspection visits to familiarise ourselves with the area and recently we visited Budapest. It is very important to us that the visits and hotels we use are up to our high standard. During the trip we spent a lot of time visiting hotels to ensure they have the facility to cater for large groups. When we weren’t visiting hotels we managed to spend some time visiting some of Budapest’s magnificent sights.

 

Day 1

We landed in Budapest around mid-afternoon and spent the rest of the day visiting hotels. That evening we checked into our Hotel Atlas for the duration of the stay.

Day 2

After breakfast we set off inspecting more hotels located in the downtown Budapest area. Following a morning of hotel inspections, we explored the local area on a guided walking tour. We took a stroll down the ginormous river Danube along the water front. The Danube is Europe's second-longest river, after the Volga River, flowing through 10 countries!

After this we took part in a guided visit around the Grand Synagogue, a very impressive building built in a residential area between 1854 and 1859 by the Jewish community of Pest. It is the largest synagogue in Europe and one of the largest in the world. Today it is a tourist hotspot well renowned today for its grand architecture and history.

Following this we visited St Stephen’s Basilica. A Roman Catholic basilica named in honour of Stephen, the first King of Hungary.

The Basilica is famous for its magnificent architecture as well as being host to many music concerts.  The Saint Stephen Basilica has played an active role in the musical community since its consecration back in 1905. We recommend visiting on a Sunday during the summer months for a chance to see the talented Basilica choir perform.

That afternoon we took part in a fun treasure hunt where we visited Heroes square and Vajdahunyad Castle. Treasure hunts are often a fun way to explore the area and something we offer in most of our destinations.

Day 3

Day 3 saw us exploring more of beautiful Budapest. After departing the hotel we made our way to the Castle Area where we visited Matthias Church and Fisherman’s Bastion.

Matthias Church is a Roman Catholic Church located in Budapest, Hungary, in front of the Fisherman's Bastion at the heart of Buda's Castle District. Budapest’s Castle District is packed with historic sights and attractions.

In the afternoon we had some free time so we spent it familiarising ourselves with the area. After a quick rest stop back at the hotel we then made our way to the River Danube for an evening river cruise. A cruise of the river Danube is always popular with groups due to the sheer size of the river. It is a must see whilst in Budapest, particularly at night when the city is lit up.

Day 4

On our last day we enjoyed breakfast at the hotel. Following checkout we had some free time in Budapest before making our way to the airport for the return flight.
