About the weather

SeasonsWhat about the weather? What to expect?

The climate of Hungary can be described as typical continental with warm, dry summers and cold winters. January is the coldest month with daytime temperatures usually around zero, but for a few week it can be very cold, with temperatures far below zero (-10-15°C). Heavy snowfalls are also possible. In summer the daytime temperatures reaches 20-25°C but sometimes quite higher than 30°C. In the summertime mostly we have dry weather, although sometimes heavy thunderstorms can occur at the end of the day. July is the warmest month with an average temperature of 22°C.Generally, the weather is best in May-September, when days are warm and the nights are cool, although it rains more in spring than in the summertime. Autumn and winter are usually a little chilly and wet, sometimes snowy and often foggy, especially in the mountainous regions.

Required clothing

Lightweight cottons and linens during summer months; an umbrella or raincoat is advised for local showers. Warmer rainwear and warm coats are needed during the winter months. A sweater may be needed even in the summer in the evening hours. We would like to recommend you to bring warm winter clothes, a coat, scarf, hat, gloves, boots or buy them here. Buying them is not a problem as we have several clothing shops in and around the city.
