From today: Europe’s 4th best Christmas market welcomes you at St Stephen’s Basilica!
Today marks the eighth year that the Advent Feast at the Basilica, Europe’s fourth most imposing Christmas whirl kicks off. The spectacular Advent meeting point welcomes guests with unique 3D light shows on the façade of the Basilica, free ice rink and unique, handmade goods and culinary experiences until the 1st of January.
The organisers are very proud to be listed among the “TOP 5” Christmas markets of Europe. They lay special emphasis on the customer experience as they aim to preserve the familiar atmosphere of the place.
Just take a look at the ice rink – people are having fun and enjoying the holiday feeling. The lights, the smells and the flavours are guaranteed to get you in the mood!
When choosing the vendors, the most important requirement is that they have to offer high-quality and unique products. Contemporary artists sell their treasures in the fairytale-like cabins, thus renewing the artisan traditions. The gastronomic selection is similarly unique: everybody can find delicious bites, not to mention that the organisers even thought of people with special dietary needs; you can pair your hot beverage with vegan, diabetic or gluten-free meals.
You can expect a wide variety of programmes from artisan workshops, through children’s games, flashmobs to dances and further surprises.
Moreover, you can practice charity in the market. The Advent Feast has been collaborating with the Hungarian Interchurch Aid for seven years, and several activists, diplomats and celebrities help each year by baking gingerbread cookies, which they then sell in favour of those in need.
The Advent Feast at the Basilica is among the twenty candidates of the European Best Destinations website to become the best of the best – based on your votes. They aim to reach the “TOP 3” this year, so let’s help them by voting on this link.
Important! The voting starts on the 30th of November and ends on the 10th of December 🙂
