Danube Palace (Duna Palota)
Completed in 1885, Budapest’s neo-Baroque concert hall was built to celebrate the country’s 1,000-year anniversary. The luxurious interior was renovated during the Soviet era but has now been mostly returned to its original form. Today, the Danube Palace (Duna Palota) is known for its program of folk shows, orchestral concerts, and cultural events.

The Basics
The best way to experience the Danube Palace is by attending a show. Book ahead to secure tickets to an orchestral or folk performance, and take advantage of package deals that include a show along with other top experiences, such as a Danube cruise or trip to Gellert spa. Inclusive deals, such as the Budapest Card, provide discounted access to a range of attractions, including the Palace, over a time period of your choice.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A visit to the Danube Palace is a must for music aficionados and culture vultures.
  • Book ahead to secure seats that suit your budget.
  • The concert hall is mostly accessible for wheelchair users, with accessible restrooms and seating on the main level.

How to Get There
Danube Palace is accessible by metro, with three stations within a 10-minute walk. Several local buses also stop on Zrínyi utca. Cruise tours conveniently alight and depart from the nearby Budapest Port.

When to Get There

Christmas concerts, when the Danube Symphony Orchestra often perform festive favorites in addition to popular classics, are especially atmospheric. Otherwise, take advantage of the near year-round folk shows.

See Behind the Scenes
The ornate theater hall isn’t the Palace’s only highlight. Architectural enthusiasts and history buffs can opt for a tour package that includes guided exploration of the venue, in addition to a concert experience, for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the building’s more exclusive spaces.
