Tour description provided by Viator

Experience Budapest’s alternative culture and underground art on a small-group cultural walking tour. With your knowledgeable guide, you’ll explore districts in Budapest rarely visited by tourists. Learn about Budapest’s street art, architecture and graffiti scene, and see one of the most original alternative sites, an ex-Ukrainian cargo ship that’s now a popular music venue -- the A38 Ship. You’ll uncover Budapest's fascinating underground cultural life on this small-group walking tour, and see hidden places like the synagogues in the Jewish quarter. The tour also visits street art galleries and fashionable coffee shops and bars.

Together with your local guide, you’ll head away from the main tourist spots on this small-group tour to take a walk through Budapest’s Jewish district with its old synagogues, where the alternative culture of the Hungarian capital is in full flow. Traces of Jewish culture remain in Budapest, creating a unique religious and cultural atmosphere. Then discover Budapest’s alternative culture and art scene, visiting art and cultural centers, and street art galleries. Make a quick stop for a coffee in a fashionable bar (not included) and photo gallery.

Continue your walking tour through the former working-class districts which have been transformed into a hub of vibrant cultural life since communist days. Hear stories about the places where Budapest's underground scene started under the old regime.

Then, you'll walk across the River Danube to Buda, where you’ll visit the A38 Ship. The former Ukrainian cargo ship has been reincarnated into one of Budapest’s most important cultural centers and trendiest live music venues, and is where your tour will end.
