This is one of the nicest, though low key, video about the traditional Budapest Christmas market on Vorosmarty Square in Budapest, Hungary. The video film (made in 2011) captures the little stalls and the surrounding buildings and sights very well, but on the calmer side of the Xmas market, when there are fewer people at the popular fair. The Christmas markets in Budapest usually start to get crowded after working hours (5-6pm) on weekdays, and, of course, at the Advent weekends.
Vorosmarty Sq Christmas Fair is crowded despite the fact that the other big Xmas market by the St Stephen’s Basilica is literally five minute walk.
Tip: when is it worth visiting the Christmas Market in Budapest?
If you want to avoid the crowds, go in the morning, around 10am, or at 2pm the latest. This way, however, you will also miss the Christmas concerts on the square, which typically start at 5pm and 6.15pm on weekdays 9on Vorosmaty Square).
So the questions is what is more important to you: the calmer markets with less crowds or the live music and entertainment, and to see the buzzing night life of the Budapest Christmas markets.
