I have MS and access was good with lifts to the exhibit halls and to the panoramic view across the Danube from the rooftop. Lovely building, in excellent condition, interesting exhibits and helpful staff.

Located in Vigadó square, this is a lovely concert hall to look at from the outside (don't miss the beautiful fountain in front of the hall), but the inside looks as if it need a lot of TLC to fit the beautiful exteriors.

I toured Vigado with a Violin Tours which was great (the guide provided lots of information), but If you have seen Parliament, The Opera house, St Stephens, its more of the same....fancy interiors, Hapsburg history. By itself it's gorgeous, but after a week of seeing these types of places I realized I could have done something else with my time.

Attended a great concert, too bad the event was placed at Vigado - the building has been beautifully renovated, but in the concert hall raws are not labelled properly, air condition is so strong (its winter outside) instead of heating and the cloakroom is managed catastrophic - half an hour after the show ppl are still queuing (near the entrance...

We had determined to go here when we visited Budapest in 2014 but illness prevented that. This time we went as our first visit and were not disappointed. A most beautiful building lovingly and expertly restored. There were so many pretty and attractive features we did not know where to look. The guide was excellent. Go!

Gorgeous builing, located in the square with the same name, and adjacent to the famous Korzo. One of the best pieces of architecture in the whole of Budapest.

The 'Gala' Concert in the Pesti Vigado Concert venue by t he Danube in Pest was superb! This is the most beautiful Hall - exactly what you would expect from the historic Austro-Hungarian Empire with its magnificent staircases, murals, statues etc. The Gala Concert with the classical orchestra, singers, dancers, gipsy performers and so on gave us 2 hours of...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
