Art Nouveau came into fashion in Budapest by the exhibitions which were held in and around 1896 and organized in connection with the Millennium celebrations. A time during which the Jewish population in Budapest got growing influence and earned much money. In combination with a huge growth of the population, resulted this in an unprecedented number of buildings that are constructed during the Art Nouveau period. Already in 1895/1896 there were properties built designed with a single Art Nouveau detail.
The architect Ă–dĂ¶n Lechner was very important for the development and promotion of Art Nouveau in Budapest, but the important role of the architect Frigyes Spiegel is in too many publications not or barely mentioned. Yet this architect realized, in collaboration with FĂĽlĂ¶p WeinrĂ©b, between 1896 and 1900 at least 15 buildings with Art Nouveau influences.
During the Art Nouveau period, the more pure western European / Viennese Art Nouveau style changed to an own Hungarian style, which around 1910 also got pre Art Deco / Wiener WerkstĂ¤tte ornaments and which from about 1913 slowly die off. From that time a period emerged during which the use of neo-styles at the design of buildings became fashionable again.
During this tour you will see designs of e.g. the architects Frigyes Spiegel, Emil Vidor, A. KĂˇlmĂˇn KĂ¶rĂ¶ssy and the duo BĂˇlint and JĂˇmbor. We make frequently use of the excellent public transport in the city because the buildings that you'll see during this tour are not all within walking distance of each other. Normally you see the buildings only from the outside, when we have luck it is possible to look inside a building.

Note!.... In Julius' opinion it's important that in principle everyone should be able to follow a private tour. The transfer of knowledge is more important to him than become rich (I don't need a Ferrari, a Trabant is already enough and beside I don't have a drivers license...).
