THEMATIC TOURS

One-on-one personalized tours for a specific architectural genre: date and duration depend on your requirements

THEMATIC TOURS

CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE

What is Hungary’s contribution to the architecture of the new century? Get to know the way of a city in search of its own architecture in a united Europe: from the designer’s generation of the early 1990-s up to the new stars of today!

SOCIALIST REALISM

Why does Budapest not have anything like Warsaw’s Cultural palace or Berlin’s Karl Marx Avenue? Get to know Hungary’s special approach to the socialist realism and the best buildings built after 1945!

MODERN ARCHITECTURE

Marcel Breuer and László Moholy-Nagy were two Hungarian members of the generally German-speaking Bauhaus. It’s no miracle that Budapest showcases top-class architecture of the modern age. We bring you to the treasures of the Bauhaus school well off the well-known tourist paths.

HISTORICISM & ART NOUVEAU

Already, by the 1890, the traditionalists and modernists were in conflict in Budapest. The city centre is the scene of this quarrel of styles. 130 years later we show you the peaceful coexistence of these two styles of Historicism & Art Nouveau.

URBAN DEVELOPMENT

How did Szabadság tér (Liberty Square), the biggest square in the city center, come into existence? Why is this empty space in the middle of town yet people come here? What is it like to live in urban quarters on a high budgetary income and how to cohabit neighborhoods with a dense Roma population and what role do the municipalities and authorities play?

SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE

Whether new office buildings by Swedish real-estate developers, small office houses by farsighted Hungarian developers or low energy houses in the urban area: Budapest experiments with sustainable architecture as well.

PANNONHALMA

On a mountain with a 1000-year-old abbey, “Martin’s mountain” a number of extraordinary contemporary buildings have been completed between 2004 and 2014. During a 2 or 4-hour tour we show you these as well as introduce you to the designers of this unique ensemble of the newest Hungarian architecturally notable buildings.

WINE & ARCHITECTURE

Tour three architecturally high-class wineries to the north of Lake Balaton with the added treat to be able to enjoy quality-tested wines directly on site. Indulge your eyes and palates at the same time!

BIKE-ARCH-TOUR

Starting from Graphisoft Park directly on the bank of the Danube this bicycle tour goes South in search of hidden masterpieces of the 21st century in Óbuda (Ancient Buda) and the so called Watertown area with the Király (King’s) Baths, all the way to the narrow peninsula, Kopaszi gát, with its pavilion architecture: 12 kms in four hours!
