Budapest Summer Festival

In the summer, Budapest theatres and troupes present their work outdoors, in exquisite locations such as Margaret Island and Városmajor, with genres including jazz, Dixieland, klezmer and opera.

Margaret Island also hosts various open-air theatre performances, musicals, dance shows, kids’ programmes and several concerts between June and August. Margaret Island’s stage, in the vicinity of the historic Art Nouveau water tower, is the only permanent open-air stage in Hungary, accommodating up to 3,000 people.

We suggest the Theater Boat Service as the most comfortable and spectacular method of transport. Departures from downtown, from the ports of Vigadó tér, which can be reached by walk from Hotel President Budapest.
