Why Go to Budapest for Your Hen Party?

If you’re looking for an alternative celebration, you’ve found the perfect choice with a hen party in Budapest. Both Buda and Pest offer a huge range of Budapest activities for your group to enjoy while away. Easily create a memorable weekend in the unique capital of Hungary through experiences and hen party games. Don’t forget the essentials before your trip like accom­moda­tion and all your accessories. A beautiful city in a natural setting full of gorgeous archi­tec­ture, unique ruin bars and plenty of ideas.

Why Go to Budapest for Your Hen Party?

There are plenty of ways you could fill your Budapest weekend. This city is beautiful by day and cutting edge by night thanks to its ‘ruin bars’ which are converted abandoned buildings. Some of the top ruin bars are Szimpla Kert, Instant and Fogasház. There are tonnes of activities to consider in this city from museums (the most visited museum is the museum of fine art) and shops to restaurants and markets. There are heaps of malls throughout the city, such as WestEnd Shopping Centre in Budapest and Arena Mall, which makes Budapest a shopaholic’s dream and you’ll be guaranteed a jam-packed weekend. As one of Hungary’s largest cities is it made up of two main parts; cosmopolitan Pest on the East of the Danube river where no doubt you’ll be for most of your weekend as this is where you’ll find the shops, markets, restaurants and nightlife and historic Buda on west which is much hillier and picturesque, perfect for some amazing pictures.

Being voted as one of the top places to visit in Europe, Budapest knows how to treat travellers well. One of the reasons the Hungarian capital is wildly popular is the price! Budapest, especially the side of Buda, is cheap as chips when it comes to accom­moda­tion, eating out and the quieter side of nightlife, with a vodka & mixer only costing around 600-700Ft! Pest is the more vibrant section of the city, but the prices are still comparably cheap compared to other European desti­nations.­

Unlike it’s neighbours, Budapest has only recently started to garner attention for celeb­ra­tions. Classy, stylish with an urban edge, groups have started to discover the unique nightlife options like the ruin bars to make the night one to remember. By day, you can bathe in culture and beautiful architecture at attractions such as Buda Castle Hill, Chain Bridge and the Royal Palace and by night simply get your glad rags on and Budapest (specifi­cally Pest) will look after you!

Bars in Both Buda & Pest!

As we’ve mentioned above, the one attraction that brings in party groups from all over Europe and the rest of the world is Budapest’s Ruin bars. Built into abandoned buildings said to date back to the early 2000s, a host of city centre buildings now house some of the most unique and interesting drinking spots in the city. If you and the girls want to check out some of these world-renowned venues, then why not see them for yourselves with a fully-guided famous ruins bar crawl?

With so many late-night venues dotted across the city centre, you and the girls won’t be stuck for choice when it comes to finding the perfect bar to relax in with a few cheeky cocktails! One of the first places we think you should head to is Boutiq Bar, situated just a stones’ throw away from Elizabeth Square (Erzsébet tér). Voted as being the best cocktail bar in Hungary on multiple occasions, Boutiq Bar has become somewhat of a legend in the Budapest bar scene and is definitely worth checking out to see what all the fuss is.

Probably one of the most beautiful-looking bars in the whole city, Szimpla Kert is a symbol and a hub for the alternative side to living in Budapest. Once a large factory unit, this venue has opened its own open-air cinema alongside the bar and hosts regular cultural events throughout the year. The venue’s cocktail bar has a huge variety of originally crafted cocktails and a very tasty wine list, making this the perfect place to stop off and enjoy some culture whilst sipping on a cocktail or two.

For an all-day venue that is both fantastic for food during the day and partying at night is BB’z Bar & Grill. Open every day of the week and staying open until the very early hours each weekend, this multi-purpose hotspot is great for a chilled drink with lunch, dinner, a pre-night out meal or somewhere that you and the girls can spend your entire evening dancing the night away!

Sitting high above the streets right in the heart of the city, the panoramic views from this rooftop drinking spot gives visitors unbelievable views of the neighbouring St. Stephen’s Basilica. No matter if you stop by for just one round or you spend a few hours at this bar, it’s one that shouldn’t be missed.

Known for being one of the more laid-back and relaxed bars in this lively city, Kisüzem describes itself perfectly as a “low-key neig­hbo­ur­hood watering hole”, situated at the heart of the city’s historic Jewish Quarter. This particular bar likes to showcase different pieces of artwork on its walls throughout the year and is a massively popular hotspot for students at the nearby Central European University. Not only is this a great place to grab a bite to eat during the day and a few drinks at night, but this bar also hosts live music performances every week, so there’s never a bad time to stop by!

Another massively popular bar in the immediate city centre area that you girls should pay a visit to is Tuk Tuk Bar on Paulay Ede Street.

Packed full of character and a warm & welcoming place to enjoy a drink with the girls, this late-night venue is a no-brainer if you’re looking to try some of the best cocktails in the entire city!

Nightclubs in Budapest

Unlike what you might be used to in the UK, Budapest and many other party cities across Europe keep the party going a little bit longer than we do! With most nightclubs closing between 5 and 7 O’clock in the morning and so much choice when it comes to venues across the city, you girls certainly won’t be stuck when it comes to deciding where to spend the last night of freedom!

Probably the biggest and most well-known nightclub in the city, Instant Budapest is situated on Akácfa Street and happens to be a gigantic converted building complex formerly made up of two separate houses that now hosts six bars, three dancefloors and two outdoor areas. This ruins bar is the perfect place to both sit down and enjoy some delicious food during the day and also as a place to dance until the sun comes up. This vast nightclub spread out over 1200 square metres of space offers music to suit all tastes and genres, making it a venue that everybody can enjoy no matter how fussy they are.

Another fantastic “ruins” bar and nightclub you girls certainly don’t want to miss is Doboz! This huge venue, situated on Klauzál Utca, this evening and late-night venue is built out of large abandoned buildings in the city centre and now calls itself home to four bars, two dancefloors and some of the best live DJ sets that you’ll find anywhere in Budapest. This vibrant and lively atmosphere will definitely be enough to keep you girls interested in staying for a few drinks at least, that’s for sure.

One of the most impressive clubs purely in terms of its setting and the atmosphere it brings is Akvárium Klub. Situated in the heart of the city on Erzsébet tér, this is the prime destination for fun in the sun, so if you happen to be visiting during the warmer months of the year then taking a trip to this fantastic open-air venue is a must! Serving up delicious food during the day and hosting late-night live music sets by night, this all-day party venue consists of a huge main hall, a smaller hall and a pub, as well as a large outdoor terrace space that will make your last night of freedom in Budapest an experience of a lifetime.

What are the Reasons to Visit Budapest?

What are the Reasons to Visit Budapest?

Thermal Baths!

One aspect of Budapest that brings in millions upon millions of visitors every year is the huge open-air thermal baths that dominate the city centre. So if you girls are feeling a bit stressed, why not head down and enjoy the medicinal waters on a sunny afternoon?

The History

From the Austro-Hungarian Empire to Soviet occupation during the Cold War, Hungary’s long and detailed history can be seen all over, from the city’s buildings to its museums and monuments.

The Architecture

From grand structures like Buda Castle to the gigantic Hungarian Parliament Building on the River Danube, this city knows how to build BIG!

The Nightlife

Not only does the city’s “ruins bars” bring in thousands of party-goers every year, but Budapest’s nightclubs are arguably some of the best in Europe, making it a huge destination for any parties from the UK!

The Prices

With the Hungarian Forint being signi­fic­antly weaker than the pound, you girls are guaranteed to get proper bang for your buck when it comes to spending in Budapest.

Unfor­get­table Hen Party Activities

Whether you and the girls are looking to party hard with a party cruise night or get a well-needed adrenaline kick from a bobsledding session, there’s so much variety when it comes to celebrating your Budapest weekend.

Get the Most Out of Your Budapest Hen Party

Get the Most Out of Your Budapest Hen Party

With most groups that flock to the continent for their pre-wedding celebrations usually spending just a couple of nights at their destination, it should be at the top of your priorities to make sure you spend your time as wisely as possible on your hen party in Budapest. We think that one way to do this would be to see all the best bits first! One of the biggest attractions in this beautiful capital is the impressive Buda Castle. Built during the 12th century, the building was devastated during the Siege of Budapest at the end of the Second World War but was rebuilt during the 1950s & 60s. It now stands as one of the most impressive buildings in the city, towering over the skyline at the top of Castle Hill. This huge complex can be toured throughout the year and would make for a chilled out day for you and the girls!

Although the Hungarian capital is now known as one of the most lively and welcoming cities in Eastern Europe, it can be hard to imagine what life was like in Hungary under occupation during the Second World War and the Cold War. Terror Haza (“House of Terror”) is a permanent indoor museum space situated on Andrássy ú. that serves as both a reminder and a memorial to Hungary’s difficult past. If you’re interested on clueing yourself up on local knowledge or are simply interested in how different life was here just a few decades ago, this is the best place to experience it.

How to Get Around Budapest?

How to Get Around Budapest?

Making your way around Budapest shouldn’t prove to be too much of a challenge for you girls. Like many other capital cities across Eastern and Central Europe, Budapest operates a fast and efficient public transport network. The quickest and most reliable way of getting from one side of this city to the other would be by travelling on the Budapest Subway/Metro. Covering three underground lines and serving the majority of the city, visitors can expect extremely affordable ticket prices with a single ticket costing less than £1 on average!

Budapest also has a large network of streetcars. These iconic yellow trams have been a staple of life in Budapest for over 125 years and remains to be one of the most popular methods of public transport, as well as being one of the largest tram networks in the world! Covering 36 lines across the city, this is an ideal way to get from A to B in a rush… or a really easy way to discover something new by simply hopping on and exploring!
