One of the most beautiful concert hall on earth of its relative Art nouveau style. I can see where the Cleveland concert hall got an idea from. People in Budapest love music. They make you feel like they can just live by listening to music....More

A must see for the lovers of music as well as architecture and Jugendstil/Art Nouveau. Splendid interior decoration, a true Gesamtkunstwerk. A very stylish venue where you can sometimes attend interesting performances for free (students exams). The two halls are an experience in itself.

Three rooms with memorabilia of the composer. Interesting and not too crowded. Even better if you can take in a concert at the same time.

We had booked a private tour around this wonderful building. The guide was excellent, the interior was sumptuous and the tour ended with a private concert from a former student. We would highly recommend the experience.

I attended 3 concerts here in April 2018 and did the guided tour. I have visited many concert halls in Europe but this must be the most beautiful. The main concert hall is smaller than the Musikverein in Vienna but to my mind much more...More
