Discover Budapest and gain unforgettable memories at the same time!
If you could define the perfect city for incentives, you would just describe Budapest: delicious cuisine, rich history, breathtaking scenery, wild nightlife and affordable prices, make a perfect mixture for the successful incentive event suitable for every company.
There are plenty of “traditional” incentive activities available for team building: adventure parks, escape rooms, private boat parties, river ride busses, wine/pálinka/beer tasting and so on, however, incentive organizers in Budapest did not stop there and they created some extraordinary programs for the true uniting experiences.
Treasure hunt in Budapest
This activity is a unique way of allowing guests to discover the city by themselves by completing the set route and gaining points along the way. The groups are divided into smaller teams and given a care package with itinerary, map and public transportation tickets. Teams have to answer the questions, talk to Hungarian people, use public transport and collect the treasures at the stations. At the end of the treasure hunt, the points from the correct answers and activities are counted and the winning team gets memorable gifts.
Cooking course in the Grand Market Hall
Not all incentives have to have the competitive nature, sometimes it is better just to have the team building while preparing what everyone loves: homemade food. The group is split up into teams that are given the shopping list for their future typical Hungarian dishes (to increase the fun of the shopping, the list may be written in Hungarian) and they have to buy all the ingredients themselves. Professional chefs will help and give advice to make a delicious meal of 4-6 courses. At the end of the evening, participants dine together and get a chance to taste the other groups’ creations.
Dragon boat sailing and racing on the Danube
Dragon boat is one of the most trendy water sports today, despite being invented in China over 2000 years ago. It is not only a great way of bonding within a team, but also an amazing active way of discovering the city through a water-borne battle with your colleagues! The fastest team will receive great gifts, but even if your team is not the first; you will still cherish those exciting memories for the rest of your life!
