“Probably the best in Europe”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This venue is probably acoustically the best in Europe. It is very new and the site of many world class concerts. Worth photographing at night as well.

We had the thrill of seeing Wagner's Parsifal performed at this amazing Béla Bartók National Concert Hall. It started at 4pm and finished around 10.30pm with 2 intervals (approx 1 hour each).

This impressive building sits adjacent to the banks of the Danube and is easily accessible by public transport. The acoustics were phenomenal. The seating was comfortable with a good view of the stage. In the spacious foyer areas there were several food stations with plenty of seating and table space.

This would have to be the best theatre space in the world. I would love to know if there is one better.

“A delightful string quartet concert at this sparkly new venue”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The concert hall of the Palace of the Arts was the venue for a string quartet concert we attended during a visit to Budapest.

The stunning interior of this building is worth a visit on its own account.

There are large medium and small performance spaces within the impressive complex, along with a music shop/bookseller with a huge range of interesting materials as well as all ths facilities you would expect.

The acoustical qualities of the hall were splendid.

“A must see stop on your visit to Budapest”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is the national philharmonic hall. It is very modern and beautiful. Adjacent to this is the National Theater and the Ludwig Art Gallery. The buildings are located on the Danube and have magnificent gardens surrounding them. It makes for a pleasant part of the day. Varying types of food facilities are available if you want to grab a meal or a coffee. You reach this building by taking the number 2 tram to the Millenium stop and walk across the street in the direction of the Danube. Make sure you walk into the MUPA, and the National Theater buidings and definitely tour the gardens. As you leave the National Theater area a large footpath follows the river toward Baross Ter - maybe a mile walk. Many new office/residential buildings have been built with this walkway and gives a different impression of Budapest as a modern metropolis.
