Welcome to Ieger's
September newsletter, dedicated to bringing you all the news on the events and programs happening in Hungary's most beautiful city this month.
The heady days of August are now a distant memory and Autumn is upon us. Although in many tourist destinations this is the month that sees restaurants, hotels, museums and sights winding down and moving into off-season mode, here in Eger this is not the case. Why? Because it is in September that the grapes are harvested and, this is something to be celebrated in a city marinated in wine for most, if not all of its history.
The highlight of the month's festivities is, as you might have already guessed, the Harvest Festival
taking place in Szépasszony Völgy on the 23rd and 24th September. Over 200 cellars will be opening their doors to wine lovers from all over Hungary and beyond in celebration of the harvest. There will also be programs for all the family, live music, a fairground and lots, lots more.
In this issue, we have a special section dedicated to wine with links to pages detailing the history of wine in Eger
, recent vintages
, the story of how Bull's Blood got its name
Of course, there is more to Eger than wine and as usual we give a round up of the events and progams taking place in the 'Baroque Pearl of Hungary' (as the city is sometimes referred to)
September is a great time to come and visit Eger be it for a day, a weekend or longer. Scroll down for information on what's happening this month, and for more on the best restaurants
