Tour description

Things to do in Budapest! A relaxing day on the Margaret Island with a chilled-out break and a basket of goodies!

Need a relaxing day? We invite you to a picnic on Margaret Island, the cities favoured jogging and recreation area, with a small zoo, a musical fountain, a huge park with a japanese garden and some cute restaurants and pubs. Margaret Island - named after the daughter of King Béla IV - was inhabited since the medieval times. A Dominican and a Franciscan monastery was here - their ruins still can be visited -, and gave home to one of the Hungarian Templars' convent too. The island became public park in the 19th century. When thermal spring was found on the island, the Grand Hotel Thermal - a famous hotel of the capital - was built by the design of Miklós Ybl. The island gives home today to sport facilities too: to the Palatinus beach, to tennis courts and to the Hajós Alfréd Swimming Pool, where the multiple olimpic and world champion water polo team of Hungary used to train, and which serve as scenes of international tournaments and championships.

Before lunch we visit the once-upon-a-time cloisters, the Saint Michael Chapel (a popular wedding site today), the grave of Saint Margareth, the Japanese garden and fishpond, the still operating Music Well and Fountain from the 19th century, and the art nouveau style, 57 m high Water Tower, which is a protected UNESCO site. On summer time there are  open air concert, operas and shows are held also on the island's open air theater. The famous tennis courts and the Alfréd Hajós sport pool are regularly serve as scenes for international tournaments and championships.

On the lawn of the beautiful landscape park you can enjoy your brunch! We provide a picnic basket filled with Hugarian goodies - food and wine!
