Christmas tree - 4 December 2016 – 31 December 2016
Müpa Budapest will be erecting a special ‘design’ Christmas tree in the Müpa Winter Open Air.
The nearly 4-storey high installation (with a ground-space of 20 m² and a diameter of 5 m) will represent a unique spectacle in the vicinity of the Müpa Tent and the ice rink. In-between the numerous family and children’s programmes, visitors will surely have time to admire Müpa Budapest’s spectacularly unique Christmas tree, which will be lit up with a 110 m long light-band. The structure is made up of 167 boxes and 45 lightboxes and can be entered from three directions, and designers also had children in mind when creating a lower entrance as well.
