Competition locations

The competition will take place at multiple locations. The opening ceremony will be held at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The fights will be organized at the Faculty of Science of Eötvös Loránd University. This building will be our main venue, and meals will also be provided here. The final and closing ceremony will take place at Bosch Main Campus. 

Excursion

Throughout the week spent with us, you will have several opportunities to explore Budapest through optional guided programs. On Sunday (July 14), participants will have a truly special experience as we take a joint excursion to the amazing Danube Bend. Teams can participate in a full-day excursion in Visegrád, where they can attend a special Knight’s tournament demonstration, and also have the opportunity for a boat trip. In addition, the programs of the International Palace Games and the bustling market offer a superb recreational opportunity for everyone. Meals will be provided during the excursion, taking into account individual preferences and food allergies.

Gala dinner

After a tiring week, the students and their mentors can finally unwind and have some fun together at Dürer Kert during the gala dinner. At the gala dinner, alongside a buffet of continental cuisine, we’ll be serving traditional Hungarian and vegetarian dishes as well. Please indicate any food allergies during registration on the iypt cc platform.
