The main venue for tasting sessions and afterparties
Located just a short walk away from one of Budapest’s most tourist-attracting site, Hősök tere (Heroes’ square) Dürer Kert (Dürer Garden) is quick and easy to reach either by public transport, either by car. It’s not in the buzzing heart of the city, more like in between downtown and outer districts, making it the perfect venue.
The building itself has started its long and curious transformation as a boarding school in the 19th century, ran by French nuns of Sacre Coeur. The complex had served as a Soviet college after WWII until 1989 when it was assigned to a prestigious Hungarian university. Today, within the walls of the former gym, chapel and lecture hall, you find one of Budapest’s leading, most characteristic clubs. The musical spectrum goes from metal through indie, hip-hop to various electro trends, welcoming on stage all the current productions, cult figures and fresh talents of the Hungarian and international music scene.
With its various spatial capacities, Dürer Kert can hold events of different sizes and sorts, not to mention the garden, which becomes a packed space of cultural, life-style events, literary or movie nights, markets, open-air concerts and first time of its long history, our beer festival during the Summer. We have had so many great experiences and seen many of our favorite bands here that we are not even trying to start listing them. It is an honor for us to organize Budapest Beer Week within these walls.
