A magnificent building - while it was build around 15 years ago, it looks like new. We attended a Hungarian folklore concert - while not our cup of tea, our overall experience combined with the building was a perfect 10 - highly recommended

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.

I prefer this concert hall to the academy of music in Budapest. I think I listened more than 200 concerts by now. Also there is a museum of contemporary arts and a smaller theater inside. The staff is friendly and helpful. You don't have to...More

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!

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
