Posted by Mia Balogh · Dec 29, 2016

Do you spent New Year’s Eve in Budapest? If you do but you still don’t know where to celebrate exactly, let us share some ideas with you.

1, The Gatsby party

Have you seen The Great Gatsby? And would you like to celebrate New Year’s Eve just like you were on a party organized by Mr. Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie? If yes, don’t hesitate: purchase a ticket instantly for the most unforgettable party of the year – and probably of the next few years. ‘THE GATSBY - New Year's Eve Dinner and Party’ organized by Tütü and Susu is waiting for you! The dinner begins at 8 PM and the party starts at 10 PM, together it costs 17 500 HUF. Because, you know: ‘A little party never killed nobody’.

2, Welcome the New Year on the Danube

In Budapest, you can obviously celebrate New Year’s Eve on the Danube, if you want to. You can enjoy a river cruise which departs from Szent István park’s river port on 31 December at 9 PM and arrives back on 1 January around 3 AM. But you can also choose a pontoon, for example Vogue, where DJ György Cserhalmi and the well-known Hungarian singer Bálint Gájer will make you want to dance all night.

3, A little bit of luxury

We can also suggest you some exclusive events for New Year’s Eve. For example, in Hilton Hotel, you can enjoy a ball and the music of Sunny Band and the well-known Hungarian singer, musical actor and media personality Zoltán Bereczki (tickets for 49 000 HUF / person) and in the famous Gundel, you can enjoy a seven-course dinner while the restaurant’s salon orchestra plays music (tickets for 65 000 HUF / person).

+1: New Year’s Eve in the city

If you have read our compilation too late, and you didn’t manage to purchase tickets for the best events, don’t be sad because a lot of Hungarians and tourists enjoy New Year’s Eve in the city. Just walk down on the streets to Oktogon, Nyugati Railway Station or Vörösmarty Square and enjoy the biggest street party of the year. Maybe you will find it too noisy and too crowded but it is definitely worth trying once.
