Child’s Play: Making Their Own Memories with Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest

Museums, interactive shows, train rides, the circus and more

Budapest, Hungary – 2012-11-22 — / — Families staying at Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace will have plenty of ways to enjoy their holidays. Located in the heart of Budapest, the Hotel provides the perfect playground for children of all ages as well as endless activities that families can partake in together during their stay in the capital of Hungary.

Even before guests arrive at the Hotel, the Reservation Team already reaches out to the little princes or princesses to fill out a little quiz (or ask their parents to do so) to collect all the preferences that are necessary to make their stay a truly memorable one. Upon arrival, young children are greeted with a treasure box full of goodies to choose from. The surprises continue once they enter their room where in-room amenities are waiting such as kid-sized bathrobes and slippers, fresh baked chocolate cookies and hot popcorn, even personalized cookies decorated with their favourite cartoon figures made of marzipan.

Children can also enjoy kid-friendly items in the mini bar. The little ones are sure to love the variety of items from gummi bears to marshmallows and fruit candies.

Swimming in the Hotel’s infinity pool, trying to beat the parents to the lobby by taking the glorious marble staircase, or tasting unique acacia honey at the Gresham Restaurant are just a few examples of why the Hotel is a perfect playground for children of all age.

But it is not only about the Hotel when it comes to children’s play. Budapest is a must see architectural and cultural gem and while this will keep Mum and Dad happy, what can the kids do? If everyday activities such segways, bike hire, ice skating, swimming pools, thermal baths or just playing in the many city parks are not enough then try some of the following unique activities:

Animal Attractions

  • Book a behind-the-scenes visit at the Budapest Zoo and have the zoo keepers entertain and educate the children on the animals. (Located near the City park.)
  • The Tropicarium is one of the largest sea aquariums in Europe including sharks alligators, and offers a view of hundreds of other species through the observation tunnel. (Located in South Buda.)
  • The Budapest Circus operates throughout the year and includes animal shows, magicians and acrobatic performances.

Children’s Shows

  • Budapest Puppet Theatre – International fairy tales and Hungarian folk stories are presented in Hungarian, but language is seldom an issue, given that shows are highly visual and original.
  • Planetarium – An educational program that takes visitors on an exploration of the universe from trips to the moon and Mars, surveys of planet earth and the solar system. Some shows are 3D.
  • Palace of Arts classical concerts – An introduction of classical music in a child-friendly interactive format; Baby Concerts are also available for 0 – 12 month olds.
  • Interactive Concerts – The journey begins with a small concert and then an interactive demonstration of the musical instruments, how they work, the sounds they make and then guests can learn to make their own instrument from all kinds of fun and unusual materials. Just remember as long as it makes a sound it is an instrument!


  • Palace of Miracles – This child friendly museum presents scientific concepts to eager young minds in a fun and easy to understand format. Explore the physics of sound on the giant saxophone, find out how to fly a plane in the Wind Channel or feel what it is like to walk on the moon.

Trains and Other Rides

  • Children’s Railway in the Buda Hills – Board the railway at any stop along its 11 kilometre (6.8 mile) route through the hills and forests of Buda. What is most interesting about this railway is that it is operated by children, under the supervision of an adult attendant.
  • Chairlift – The Libego is a ski lift that glides above Janos-hegy, the highest hill in Budapest.
