Budapest Winter Invitation campaign

As a new marketing support element Budapest Airport informs you about its actual promotion in order to promote Budapest as a destination through your marketing communication channels. Budapest Airport joined the “Budapest Winter Invitation” inbound destination campaign in cooperation with the Hungarian National Tourism Board, involving hotels, thermal spas and other service providers for the 8th consecutive year.

Please find the promotional video below::


Imagine bathing in a steaming hot, outdoor spa under a dark winter sky or sipping hot red wine in the glow of thousands of twinkling lights from the Christmas market at the Basilica. Imagine enjoying a hearty Hungarian dinner on the banks of the Danube with the historic Castle District lit up majestically in front of you.

These are just some of the delights that the stunning Hungarian capital, Budapest, has to offer its winter visitors and that make this city a charming place to explore during the winter months. To encourage visitors to stay longer and really make the most of their winter escape, leading hotels in the city will once again run a special "Budapest Winter Invitation" promotion from 1st November 2014 until 5th April 2015. Guests will be able to stay ‘three nights for the price of two', or ‘four nights for the price of three' at many of the 3-, 4- and 5-star hotels and enter free of charge to any of 3 historical spas of the city (Gellért, Rudas and local favourite Lukács baths), making Budapest one of the best-value winter break destinations this year. Enjoy discounts of between 20 and 50% at Giraffe Hop on Hop off bus tours, Legenda Sightseeing Cruises, Széchenyi Baths or at Aquaworld water theme park. Do not forget to try out the special taste of Budapest at the Gundel, Kárpátia, Széchenyi and Symbol restaurants or at the Advent Feast at the Basilica.
