Experience routes

Beside the traditional genre-based recommendations, this year the program of Budapest Autumn Festival can be browsed and enjoyed along thematic conceptions as well. We recommend nine experience routes to visitors who are curious about independent creative minds, an opportunity to participate, to discover the city, community stories, foreign artists and local characteristics.

#Welcomeculture

Budapest is part of Europe’s cultural blood circulation: it welcomes home our fellow countrymen creating art abroad and is in a dialogue with international artworks.

#Margitlane

Margit quarter encourages us to reconquer our common spaces; the challenge is to establish a new relationship with each other and the city quarter. Convert an empty shop window into a gallery, populate public spaces with theatre, film and dance.
