About your host

I grew up in Wekerle; I know every single corner of it. I work as a Portuguese language teacher and as a tour guide. My passion is to learn foreign languages in order to use them to give and receive interesting facts or pieces of information. There are times when my colleague Samu will guide you. He is also a tour guide and an urban planner.

About Wekerlei Társaskör Egyesület

The name of our NGO is Wekerlei Társaskör Egyesület (WTE), which can be translated as Wekerle Society Association. The goal of the organisation is to preserve the architectural and historical heritage of the 110 year old Wekerle Estate. More than 500 volunteers work on making Wekerle a better place to live, protecting its green areas and providing a lively community life.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Wekerlei Társaskör Egyesület. .

What we’ll do

Together, we will explore the 110 year old Wekerle Estate: walk along its village-like streets, visit its special folk secessionist buildings and sit in its green parks. We will visit a private garden and enter the basement of a 100 years old building, where people hid during the bombings of World War II. During our journey, you will definately forget that you are just 15 minutes from the city…

Where you'll be

Wekerle was built, at the start of the 20th century, to house skilled workers coming from the countryside. The Estate is one of the largest and oldest garden cities in Europe. Besides being a green and liveable place, it has a very special architectural heritage, and is the most significant example of Hungarian folk secession of the 20th century. The entire Estate became a national monument in 2011.
