‘Waldorfest’, 6 - 9 July

Celebrating its tenth edition, this year the fest features top Hungarian acts such as Ivan & the Parazol and Analog Balaton. Geared towards younger Hungarians, Waldorfeszt is popular with those having recently graduated and looking to let off steam, but naturally everyone is welcome.

International Palace Games, 7 - 9 July

Celebrating royal get-togethers of centuries past, this three-day event of knightly battles and medieval music takes place in the very place where Central European nobility met back in the day, Visegrád, overlooking the Danube from its lofty vantage point.
