Come to see the winter Fireworks on New Year’s Eve from the Fisherman’s Bastion if you are spending your New Year holiday in Budapest. Open all day and night and free to enter all December and January.
Every year, on the last day of the year, Hungarians, expats and tourists come together to party in the streets, to watch the fireworks displays near the river Danube, and in all sorts of ways, to celebrate the New Year coming.
Entry to the Fisherman’s Bastion is free throughout the winter season (including Christmas), so do come to enjoy the views, the boats passing by in Budapest. You can take a guided tour at the Fisherman’s Bastion and all around the Castle District from about €10 per person every day in the Buda Castle Budget Tour to learn about the history of the Fisherman’s Bastion and the medieval Castle later developed into a Habsburg Palace, now functioning as a museum.
If you also wish to visit the Matthias Church next to the Fisherman’s Bastion, you can choose the insightful small group Buda Castle & Church Tour.
