We were able to hear Piotr Anderszewski and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra here and had a beautiful evening in a setting that was magnificent. What was especially satisfying was that this architecturally lovely building changes colors at night, adding to its special qualities. In addition,...More

Visited for concert of Bruckner with Budapest Festival Orchestra. Beautiful modern hall with great acoustics. A bit out from the town centre, but an easy 15 minutes ride on the number 2 tram.

When in Budapest,checkout this place for classical concerts! I love the acoustics of the concert hall, which hosts classical concerts, while there's a slightly smaller hall for dance acts as well. Don't forget to check out the terrace with for great views!

A semi staged performance over four nights with the wonderful conductor Adam Fischer. A light spacious building but the hall too large for comfort with not particularly good acoustics. Uncomfortable seats. Performed over four days which is most unusual.

You can visit the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, or you can join a phenomenal concert at the Concert Hall. The building is amazing from the inside and outside also. Really like this place.

It depends what you are visiting. For a good concert best to book ahead if you want good tickets. For the museum it isn't necessary
