More about the Buda Castle Easter Festival on Festival Budapest.

The festival is a perfect program for those who are on an Easter holiday in Budapest, Hungary. With the festival ticket you are also entitled to visit the two major attractions inside the Buda Castle buildings: the Hungarian National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum.

In recent years, there have been very mild springs, but in 2013 the weather seemed to be stuck in winter. So there is no knowing what the weather is like at Easter in Budapest in 2014 or 2015, but mostly it is nice, sunny and around 10 degrees Celsius in the plus.

If you visit Budapest with children, they will surely enjoy the varied Easter program at the festival (do check the details for the best timing though). Some of the options from recent years included:

  • Easter egg painting
  • Easter Labyrinth
  • Easter egg hunt
  • Live shows for kids: puppet shows
  • Carousel with baskets for the little ones
  • Some Easter pets can be fed

The event does not take place in 2019.
