Guided Tour of the Palinka Museum

  • English English
  • 40 minutes

Delve deep into Hungarian culture on this fascinating guided tour of the Palinka Museum, where you'll learn all about the country's most traditional drink and taste it too!

What is the Palinka Museum?

The Palinka Museum in Budapest is dedicated to Hungary's most traditional alcoholic beverage: palinka. This ticket gives you access to the museum to explore its exhibitions at your leisure, and to enjoy a 40-minute guided tour with an English-speaking guide at the time of your choice. Your guide will reveal how palinka is made and tell you all about the different ingredients used, like cherries, pears and peaches.

Located in the heart of Budapest, the museum provides a complete journey through the history of a drink that has spiced up the lives of numerous generations of Hungarians. What's more, a fun interactive experience allows you to make your own palinka, and you'll even get to drink it afterwards! 

Guided Tour & Palinka Tasting

When making your reservation, you'll have the option to complete your experience enjoying an additional tasting of palinka at the end of your guided tour. If you choose this option, your tasting will be conducted by an expert guide who will explain each of the steps followed to make the drink, and you'll then taste three different types of palinka.
