Please consult the website of the Liszt Academy for the latest information on the current situation.

Thank you for your kind understanding!


Unbelievably gorgeous!

"We visited the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music 2 times during our stay in Budapest. Once to tour the music conservatory/concert halls during the day (daily tours are offered in English with a bonus performance at the conclusion of your tour) and a second visit to attend an evening piano recital. 

The tour was fantastic (classical music fan here) and at the conclusion, we were treated to a performance by a wonderful pianist who was a graduate of the academy.The piano recital was held at night as was absolutely wonderful.

The building itself is an absolutely stunning work of art - if you like Art Nouveau, you will be completely blown away by the beauty of the building. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area (centrally located right off Andrassy - Ferenc Liszt Square)."
