Weather at Easter in Budapest

The average April daily temperature is about +13-18 degrees Celsius (high temperature) and +5-8 degrees Celsius (low temperature)

Spring weather, including Easter weather, is hard to predict well in Budapest, as the temperature can be very warm or quite cool, depending on the whereabouts of the heat waves in Europe. Generally speaking, the weather at Easter in Hungary is quite amenable, the trees are blossoming, and there is a beautiful spring scent hovering over the city, and the riverfront, which starts to fill up with couples and friends taking big walks along the UNESCO World Heritage riverside of the Danube. Enjoy Easter in style on some of the best city Danube cruises! Book while seats are available.
