Hospitality & Catering College Trips & Tours to Budapest

Study trips to Budapest offer a unique experience and the significance of Budapest to Hungary cannot be overstated. As well as housing one fifth of the country’s population, the nation’s wealth, political power, cultural life and transport converges here in this beautiful capital city.

Lying either side of the river the city is a swath of sweeping bridges and palatial buildings earning it the title “Pearl of the Danube”.  Still less exposed to tourism than nearby Prague, Hospitality and Catering study trips to Budapest offer an excellent opportunity to explore a city in an exciting stage of transition.
