Easter Programs for the Family

Looking over some of the Easter Festivities in Budapest
Budapest, 20 April 2019 - 22 April 2019
Easter is coming up with lots of cheerful family programs throughout the city. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us, and finally all the citydwellers can enjoy the festivities and welcome real spring with all its bounties. We have picked some of the most interesting events that will take place in Budapest this Easter.
Easter at the Castle Garden Bazaar: From 20 April to 22 April the auditorium and the garden of the popular Bazaar awaits children and adults alike with both indoor and open air programs. Workshops, craft activities and folklore performances will make the festivities really colorful. At the Easter Egg exhibition we can admire the designs and decorations of Hungarian artists. The kids can also try their hands at egg painting. (As the number of eggs is limited, it is recommended to bring one or two with us to paint.) There will be various concerts presenting acclaimed performers of the world music/folk and children's music genre. Free.

Easter at Piczinke Court: On the 21 and 22 of April the kids' beloved pony riding court awaits the family with special Easter programs. Located at Normafa - Csillebérc, it is the perfect place for children to experience some rural ambiance and get some fresh air outdoors. The charming court is a popular choice for learning how to ride a horse and birthdays are often held there too. For Easter they prepare a petting zoo featuring rabbits, goats and lambs. The kids can look for hidden easter eggs and learn how to decorate them. They can also channel their energy at the playground of the court. Admission: 2000 HUF.

Easter in the Hungarian Railway Museum: On the 21 and 22 of April the Museum awaits the families with a special Easter Event. The biggest interactive railway theme park of Europe is worth a visit every time of the year, but on Ester Monday there will be a bonanza of colorful programs: the children can learn how to make a candle or they can try their hands at the art of felting. Of course there will be also egg painting and the kids can weave their own little basket to put the eggs in. The petting zoo will be also undoubtedly popular among the younger visitors. Concerts, puppet theatre performances, folklore dance and magic shows will make the event even more exciting. Family ticket (2 adults + 2 kids): 4000 HUF.

Easter in the Royal Palace of Gödöllő
: On the 21 and 22 of April the favourite residence of Empress Elizabeth (wife of Emperor Franz Joseph I.) will transform into a huge adventure park for children, offering traditional Easter programs like playful egg hunt and egg decoration. In consideration of the special occasion there will be also classical music concerts, puppet theatre performances and pancake workshops, but the palace and its surroundings are worth a visit anyway. Admission fee for the programs: 500 HUF which is redeemable at the permanent exhibitions of the Palace, and also at the café and the souvenir shop.
