Off to Budapest on Thursday with the missus, trying to make it a special weekend for her. Is there one that has been before that could recommend anything? Any nice walks? Etc

In this temperature you'll just want to sit in the thermal baths all day! Definitely get food in the Jewish quarter. Experience as many ruin bars as you can. The market scene is strong and be sure to eat all the pastries!
you want to give her a speical weekend by making her walk.. i'd be looking up the best restaurants on tripadvisor..
If she likes cats there’s a cat bar, very strange but pretty cool we stumbled across the place it looked like a normal bar, there was a quiz on and the guy behind the bar says “there’s no tables left but you are welcome to sit with the cats”. In for a penny in for a pound we sat with the cats! Strange place but we had a laugh.

We went this time of year too the weather was warmer than home but it got cool at night. Loads of walks over the river up to Buda castle.

I'm there right now and it is unseasonably warm. Warmer than when we left Leeds bradford. Christmas market was quite nice today
Treat yourselves in this top restaurant: gundel.hu/en/
Take a walk up to the old castle. Cross over the river. Views are great. Walk along the river. Go to the baths. Take in the dive bars. River cruise at night. Loads to do. Stay away from the tourist traps and experience the real Budapest. It’s so cheap there.
They do guided walks which includes a meal we booked it through our hotel
Thanks all for the responses, gonna look for a nice seafood restaurant for us, it’s a proposal one! So any nice areas that this can be achieved where we won’t be on every tourists photo album would be great?!
Pinball Museum :-)
Visit Citadel, Some fantastic views from up there. The Hop on/ hop off bus tours were great for getting around.

How do you get up there? I want somewhere with a great view of the night lights but she is reluctant to go anywhere silly on an evening in a foreign country.

I used the Hop on / Hop off bus tours. Can't remember which one went up there but they'll give you a route map.

That's disappointing, they think they're being romantic. It was 2 years back when I went. Those parliamentary buildings along with all the various gothic church buildings are amazing. Some really amazing architecture.

Can anyone tell me where the none tourist areas are so we don’t get ripped off with the prices? We have fallen trap to it to many times and spending a fortune!
Already fallen trap as we came for breakfast and have spent €50! For one coffee, beer and 2 english breakfasts!
