Get a little off the beaten path in Budapest. Culture Trip’s curated list of unusual tours and experiences will help you discover a different side to the Hungarian capital.
Budapest may be full of history, but that doesn’t mean the city isn’t packed with quirky, offbeat experiences and activities to discover beyond the thermal baths for which it is known. Whether it’s exploring the labyrinthine network of caves underneath the Buda Hills, learning how to bake authentic Hungarian pastries or seeing filming locations from Hollywood blockbusters up close, Budapest boasts myriad alternative experiences for those looking to uncover.
Thanks to modern technology, history is closer than ever! This programme is not just a sightseeing tour; it’s a time-travelling journey. Don’t read about history! Relive it! Our programme is an audio-guided virtual reality walking tour in the Buda Castle area, where you get an insight into Budapest’s history. We will not only talk about the times and events that shaped the city; we will show them! On this tour, you’ll explore key moments in the city’s history, including the construction of the castle in the Middle Ages, the intense battles of World War II and the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. Expect a truly unique tour of one of the world’s most stunning locations! Prepare yourself for a mind-bending 3D virtual reality experience, packed with action and amazing visuals!
Spend two hours exploring the exterior of the Buda Castle district by night, as your storyteller talks you through Hungary’s bloody past. Familiarise yourself with the myths of Vlad Dracula and Elizabeth Báthory, as well the vampire stories of the 19th century. Note that Mysterium Tours does NOT do typical guided tours; these are immersive storytelling experiences about legends, histories and tales not always associated with the building we stand in front of.
