It may snow, but in late years, snowfall has become less common than before. I hardly saw any snow last winter.

You have more chance to see snow outside the city, especially in the hills. Budapest is at a height of 200-500 meters above sea level, while the highest of hills are around 900, and that makes some difference (it may rain in the city when there's snowfall in the hills - and here I don't mean the Buda Hills but places like the Pilis or rather the Matra, which isn't far, a good hours' drive or two hours by bus).

It may snow but nobody can actually guess. The temperature will be low and you can enjoy iceskating with your kids in Varosliget Park just on the corner of Heroes Square (Hosok Tere). Even if you don't have snow, kids may enjoy this activity.

Travel Tips for Budapest

The weather

by cheesecake17

The time I was there it seems Budapest was under a heat spell..:)....june 23-30 2006 WAS HOT!!!!..35C.....It rained only the day I arrive and the day I left....and the week to come was going to be cooler....

Hungary has a temperate continental climate that is influenced by 3 main factors..
1.- eastern-european continental climate
2.- western-european oceanic climate
3.- mediterranean influence...

USUALLY...January is the COLDEST, while the HOTTEST are July and AUGUST...

Annual average temperature is about 12C......MAX..38C..MIN...
-10C..

Gellert-hegy, St. Gellert's Memorial

by croisbeauty

The monument marks the place where Bishop St. Gellert was martyred, rolled down the hill into the Danube in a barrel in 1046.
It is situated on the top of the hill right across the Elizabeth Bridge, if coming from the direction of the Inner City towards the Castle District.

Rebuilding the past and Reclaiming History

by cjg1

Much of Budapest is being rebuilt or restored to it's pre-Communism glory. It's nice to see such grown and rebirth of a city. According to our new friend much of the resoration will take decades to complete.

One facinating project was right by the Palace. They have discovered old wine cellers and are currently planning on making it a wine attraction featuring wines from each region of Hungary. I can't wait for that to be completed.

Buda Hills

by nettyfitz

We had a lovely day in the Buda Hills. We took the No 56 tram from Moskva ter and got off at the second stop. The cog railway is nearby and this goes up Svab Hill and Szechenyi Hill. Then we got the Children's Railway to the Huvos Valley. Children (except for the driver) run the train, check tickets, etc. From the terminus of the train, we walked up Janos Hill (a very steep climb) and then climbed up the Erzsebet Look-Out Tower which is the highest point in Budapest. The view was wonderful. We then decided to walk down firstly via the road until we came to a marked track through the woods (marked by red painted flags on the trees). We came to another station of the Children's Railway and got on the train going the wrong way! However, when we came to the other terminus, we found a stop for the No 56 tram which took us all the way back into Budapest. Take water with you on this trip. The only thing for sale when we got to the top of Janos Hill was candy floss!
