What you can expect

Get ready to explore the alternative scene of Budapest and learn about the contemporary lifestyle and philosophy of the urban jungle. See hidden gems that are filled with creativity, from graffiti to art. Listen to the occasional street musicians, spot cozy stores, and hip bars. Your private guide will tell you and your group of friends the most interesting stories.

Start at the funkiest second-hand store in town! Find your favorite must-haves that are just the right combination of vintage and Hungarian designer clothes. Admire unique creations from recycled materials, to comics and more. Check out a beautiful hand painted Sissi mural nearby and see how locals have livened up gray streets with a splash of color.

Continue to a sustainable, and eco-friendly studio. Marvel at silk-screen prints and take a peek behind-the-scenes to see the print process from up close. Your host will take you off-the-beaten path to show you magnificent murals, street graffiti, and paintings on pavements that hold unique stories related to Hungary’s history.

Walk past a local favorite club and take a look inside its garden to admire neon lights of the 60-70’s. Hear the interesting story behind the club’s metropolitan look and note down its location so you can come back to dance the night away!

Continue to the pioneer of all ruin pubs that has created a whole new pub trend. Everything you can recognize in charity shops has somehow landed as a piece of decoration in this place.

Next up is a tiny digital gallery with an inspiring selection from today’s Hungarian multimedia and digital arts. Spend a few minutes admiring the pieces, and make your way to a chaotically organized flea market shop with vintage objects from the 70’s and 80’s post communist era.

Finish the tour with underground bar and club gems. Hear all about the city’s music culture, and places to party till the wee hours of the morning.

Our awesome local hosts can’t wait to show you their most beloved spots of the city! Check out their profiles and pick your favorite local.
