First of all, let’s see the outdoor programs. The average temperature at this time is cc. 0.5 Celsius degrees, so make sure you dress in layers (sweaters, warm coat and boots, winter cap, scarf and gloves). Unfortunately, the Christmas period including the fabulous Christmas market on the Vörösmarty tér and the Christmas tram ends on 1st January. But do not worry; there are several fun things to do in Budapest, i.e. you can still take a pleasant stroll in the city during a Guided Buda Castle Tour or a Budapest Seagway Tour with different routes taking you to the City Park, Vajdahunyad Castle, the Ice Rink or the Széchenyi Bath. As a matter of fact, the panorama from the top of the Buda Castle District is breath-taking on the metropolis fully covered by snow. Furthermore, if you are keen on shopping, visit the Antique Vintage Market or the GoArt! Gozsdu Art Market for quality, handcrafted retro and antique design, or the Vegan Sunday Market for organic food and other bio stuff. For sporty types ice-skating at the largest outdoor skating rink, Műjégpálya, in Europe is a must. Another favorite venue is the Ice Terrace, located next to the Arena Plaza Shopping Mall. For pursuing real winter sports, skiing, snowboarding, or sliding, head to Normafa in the Buda Hills. And when you have been completely frozen, warm up by drinking delicious hot wine in the Mulled Wine Festival next to Allee Mall in January. Or sit into the mobile sauna on the Danube Bank near the Palace of Arts.
