Astonishing modern building with elegant, large foyers and a fantastic concert hall, - the acoustics was excellent although we had our seats in one of the last rows high up. In the building you'll find the Ludwig Museum ( Museum of Contemporary Art), which collects and displays masterworks of modern and contemporary art. The permanent collection contains valuable pieces of... More

This quiet new place is a must see if you are in Budapest. The exterior is interesting in the evening, with lots of colorfull lights, but the inside architecture also offers a lot.

Went to a concert with friend and listened to the Budapest Festival Orchestra. It was great. The concert hall itself is a very unique and monumental modern building. The acoustics are frighteningly good. If you are the concert going type then attending a concert here - there is a huge selection - is definitely something to consider when in Budapest.

We had the pleasure to enjoy a musical event in the Müvészetek Palotája: a delightful Opera with an orchester of Napoli with great musicians, an impressive chorus, top singers and an outstanding dirigent. There is no question, though, that the building itself, the materials used to buld it, the quality and detail of its construction and above all its acoustics... More

I went to hear Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra perform the Brahms first and second symphonies. Wonderful performance. I had a seat, side of stalls in a box of three which was excellent. Beautiful comfortable hall and facilities, superb acoustics, charming and helpful support staff. A 'must' for any music lover visiting Budapest!

We ate at the boheme restaurant inside the Palace of the Arts before our concert, which was great. The chicken soup had a very nice broth, with a few small pieces of chicken and some julienne vegetables. The pasta with mushrooms was fine. We also asked for a glass of wine and pointed to the one in the menu. When... More

If you're in Budapest or will be soon, make the Palace of Arts a must see. Majestically situated on the Danube, seeing this modern gem of architecture is impressive. There is an exhibition there in the Ludwig Museum section featuring photos depicting life as seen by award winning photographer/cinematographer Zsigmond Vilmos. There are myriad photos of the US to where... More

My choir, and I performed here during our stay in Budapest, when competing in the "Budapest International Choral Games". The staff who worked there was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The concert hall was wonderful, perfect acoustics and the rehearsal rooms was very good too. I'm coming back next year, not to perform but to witness a concert. Beautiful art... More

The building is a little far away from the center, and not well-known. It is next to the Danube in a new area of the city with modern office buildings and a nice garden along the river. It is definitively worth walk in the area and visit the various museums and buildings there.

This great music hall has probably one of the best acoustics in Central Europe. You have perfect view from every seat, and your can hear every sound perfectly wherever you sit (even the last row of the 3rd balcony. Free parking during performances and easy access by tram. The programs include classical concerts, operas, and jazz, performed by the finest... More
