Are you interested in something off the beaten path? Join us on a cemetery tour, a real hidden gem.

Our most important and most beautiful cemetery is also the biggest open-air statue park of Europe, yet tourists rarely find it. The greatest Hungarian artists and politicians rest in the Kerepesi Cemetery. By walking through with a knowledgeable guide you will learn a lot about Hungarian history, society, and art in the 19th and 20th century. Amazing sculptures, architecture, and nature are all found in this peaceful environment. Great photo opportunities!

For a real-life Indiana Jones experience you can add a visit to the old Jewish cemetery next door – read about it in our blog post.

Duration: 2-3 hours
Price: 50 EUR / group without the Jewish cemetery (max. 6 people – ask us about bigger groups)
75 EUR / tour with the Jewish cemetery (not available on Saturdays and on certain Jewish holidays)

Book it: judit@budapest101.com

“I loved, loved , loved my cemetery tour! I learned a lot about Budapest history and saw many beautiful works of art here. But why I recommend this experience is that it is a mystical way to learn about a city… A different perspective but not a creepy one at all. This is one tour that will be “engraved” in your mind (forgive the pun).” (Kaye, USA)
