Most of my guests on my Foodie tours just love our strudel. I always explain how and why it’s different from the Apfel Strudel you might have tried in Austria or Germany. I think everybody agrees it’s one of the nicest Hungarian pastries, not too sweet but simply delicious. I can take you to the best strudel places or you can try making your own!
Budapest in the winter is rather grey and foggy. Also, it’s very cold, so there are only a few outdoor programs locals enjoy doing from early December to the end of February. One of those programs is ice skating in the City Park, it’s great fun and the ice skating rink is usually very busy on weekends.
