"Clinking glasses" Budapest Local Custom Tip by Dabs
Budapest Local Customs: 232 reviews and 280 photos
As we were enjoying dinner at Fatal, no sooner had my husband read the section on why you don't clink beer glasses in Hungary from one of our guidebooks, did the people at the table next to us do it (actually they had wine glasses so maybe they were OK).
The reason why you don't want to clink beer glasses dates back to 1848 during the Hungarian War of Independence when Austrian officers drank beer and cheered while clinking glasses between the execution of some of the Hungarian officers.
