  • fireworks on bridges over Danube
  • LightEvolution lightpainting exhibition of Dóra Berkes.



  • Danubius Grand Hotel/Thermal Hotel Margitsziget The only baths open until its usual late hours.
  • Gellért Baths. NY06/07: on Dec 31, open until 1pm only.
  • Széchényi Baths. NY06/07: on Dec 31, open until 1pm only. On Jan 1, open from 8am.


Rule of thumb for dinner on Dec 31 is: either a restaurant is open all night (and is closed for NY program well before it starts), or it doesn't work at all. Therefore, you're very unlikely to find a dinner even for 7pm or 8pm without buying an overnight program.

Fast food

For Christmas and New Year days, there're food stalls set up at Vörösmarty tér offering skewer meat, pancakes, sausages and sauerkraut, vegetable mix and hot wine.


Most restaurants/clubs at Liszt Ferenc tér have some programs for New Year night (NY06/07).

Besides, the following restaurants have an overnight program (NY06/07):

The following restaurants are closed: Malomto-Dec 31..Jan 1 (NY06/07).


  • Buda Castle Labyrinth Minimalheadz New Years Apocalypse [1]. NY06/07: Entrance 2500ft in advance, 3500ft upon arrival. Several dance halls right inside the labyrinths, each hall with its own DJs. Starts at 21.


  • Gárdonyi Géza Theater (Hatvani kapu tér, 4; phone 310-026). Jan 1, 7pm (NY06/07): New Year Concert--popular classics; digestible modern dance. The conductor jokes and plays with the audience (even makes it sing), but all in Hungarian.
The concert attracts the creme of the town--therefore evening dress is strongly recommended. At the entrance, welcome champagne is served. Performance is introduced by mayor of the town.
