When to go
Shoulder season is prime time. Mild temps and few crowds mean lower prices and more relaxed travels. This comes in the spring (April – May) and fall (September – October). June – August is high season so book early. Low season (November – March) is colder and wetter and experiences some seasonal closures but it’s also the cheapest. Holiday season is beautiful in Budapest.
