The Buda Castle Beer Festival (Budavari Sorfesztival) is one of the top festivals in Budapest, and not only for beer and craft beer lovers.
The program of the festival includes many concerts and shows of all sorts, great local foods, and amazing beers from Hungary and from elsewhere in the world.
The festival is set atop the Castle Hill in Budapest, on the open courtyards of the Buda Royal Palace, with daytime and night time panorama views over the Danube and the river cruise ships gliding on the Danube along many beautiful attractions.
