Venues With Amazing Views

Other sites for a wedding in Hungary include Gellert Hill, Erzsebeth Lookout, and Vajdahunyad Castle, all of which provide amazing backdrops for your special event.

Gellert Hill is a 140-m high dolomite rock that overlooks the Danube. You can create lasting memories and breathtaking photos by having your ceremony above Budapest at Erzsebeth Lookout.


If you are enchanted by romance, Hungary is filled with picturesque castles, stemming from its rich historical past.

The 100-year-old, Vajdahunyad Castle looks like it fits into a fairy tale as it sits by an artificial lake in the biggest green park called City Park in Budapest.

If you are looking for a large castle, you should consider Buda Castle, which is the largest and richest in Hungary and located at the tip of Castle Hill.

Castle of Eger in the town of Bull’s blood red wine provides a historical museum, restaurants, confectioneries, wineries, and more.

A Tranquil Wedding

Do you seek tranquility and the healing powers of the thermal springs?

Lake of H?v?z, the world’s second-largest thermal lake, will excite you. You and your guests can even take advantage of the healing properties of the hot spring waters, which is the biggest active natural lake in the world.

Looking for an escape at a lake? Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, is another peaceful destination a few miles east of H?v?z, known for its rich wines and fresh waters.

What About the Cuisine?

Hungarian cuisine can satisfy even those who are the pickiest of eaters, as well as those who are more adventurous and curious. Inspired by Germanic, Italian, and Slavic dishes, you and your guests can savor different specialties.

A traditional dish served is goulash, a meat stew with potatoes and vegetables. Also, guests might enjoy a pastoral stew made of meat (beef or chicken gizzards), tomato, paprika, and onions. This dish is served with a side of Hungarian noodles called nokedli.

Fish lovers can select a fisherman’s soup, filled with paprika-spiced broth and thick cuts of river fish.

For dessert, how about a chocolate buttercream-layered sponge cake, topped with crystallized caramel and covered with nuts?
