Discover and experience the traditional ingredients of Hungarian cuisine on our classical walking tour. Come Hungry as it includes lunch and wine tasting! This four-hour culinary and cultural walking tour will give you a thorough introduction to the cuisine and wine of Hungary. Led by local foodies, this tour includes generous tastings along the way. It introduces participants to the fascinating history of the Central Market Hall, offers inside knowledge on what to taste and where to shop there, as well as the best restaurants and cafes in the neighbourhood.
Exploring Budapest through its food and drinks is the best way to do it! Our food, wine, and cultural walking tour begins at The Central Market Hall - one of Europe’s largest and most spectacular indoor markets - and continues through the charming nearby neighbourhood. Be sure to come with an appetite. You will need it on this tour!

At the Central Market Hall we will begin getting acquainted with Hungarian cuisine through the great variety and abundance of ingredients (which are mostly local and seasonal) on display. We will discuss the history of the building, the culture of eating and drinking in Hungary, and the everyday cooking and eating habits. The tour also includes an introduction to Hungarian paprika and will reveal why it is so special, how Hungarian cooks use it, and how it is produced. After tasting a few carefully selected things at the market, we will head out to the surrounding neighbourhood and visit a few more places. Lunch will be at a traditional restaurant, where we will taste a special Hungarian spirit as well. No day in Budapest is complete without dessert, so we will also stop at a cafe visited only by locals to taste some very special local dumplings.

The tour will end with a tasting of three quintessential Hungarian wines. During the tasting your guide will introduce you to the Hungarian wine regions, varietals, and styles. This tour will give you a taste of the traditional side of Hungarian cuisine, as well as the modern artisan producers and speciality food shops of the area.

We try our very best to cater for dietary requirements but due to local food customs we cannot guarantee that this will be possible in all cases. Options for vegetarians, guests with allergies and religious dietary restrictions may be very limited.
