Hungary is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. The year begins with cold temperatures, followed by a welcome thaw that brings moderate rain chances and the start of the shoulder season by early April. By the time June and July come along, and rain is slowly replaced with sunshine, tourist attractions across the country will be at their busiest, as Hungarians join tourists in taking their vacations. Warm temperatures persist through the end of September. Autumn brings drier weather than normal and moderate temperatures, and the country transitions back into shoulder season. By the time the Christmas markets open for business in early December, much of the country has retreated to sub-freezing temperatures at night, and some places already see snow. As much of the country enters the low season toward the end of the year, this is when the ski resorts in the northwest kick into high gear.
