One of the more romantic cities in Europe, Budapest is known for its rich culture, exquisite architecture and the spectacular Danube river that separates one part of the city, Buda from the other half, Pest. The best way to enjoy both sides of the city is through Danube cruises, but to experience Budapest on a dinner cruise is an elevated experience on its own accord. While there are several Budapest River cruises, dinner cruises in Budapest are a popular way of capturing the city’s finest landmarks  such as  Margaret Bridge, the Elisabeth Bridge, Chain Bridge,  the statue of Szent Gellért, Citadella and more, that are accentuated under the star light from a vantage point, while indulging in dinner and drinks. 
Here are the types of dinner cruises in Budapest you can explore: 
  • Evening Cruises: If you’re looking to experience the city under twilight’s charm, evening cruises in Budapest might be perfect for you. Cruise on the Danube during sunset that adds to the scenery while sipping on complimentary cocktails or treating yourself to an early dinner. 
  • Live Music Dinner Cruises: There’s nothing better than good ambience and good food except when the two are also paired with good music. Add a romantic  and lavish touch to your multi-course Hungarian dinner cruise on the Danube with live music including piano shows, folklore performances, operetta shows and more that make the experience more memorable. 
  • Combo dinner cruises: Explore prominent experiences and landmarks in Budapest on land before heading on to soak in the city from a vantage point. What better way to end a day of touring than with a dinner cruise? Save up on time, money and energy with your combo tickets that ensure you have a seamless experience. 
Some of the boarding points for dinner cruises are:
  • Petőfi tér, Dock 11
  • Jane Haining Rakpart, Dock 11
  • Dock 8A
  • Antall József quay 18
  • Port Akadémia, dock number 3
The boarding point for cruises in Budapest and the directions to the point will be included in your ticket post your booking. Ensure you check which dock number is printed on your ticket to avoid confusion. 
A city of bridges, you will come across three of Budapest’s prominent bridges whilst on a dinner cruise: Margaret Bridge, the Elisabeth Bridge, and the Chain Bridge. Cruise past the evergreen Margaret Island, Gellért Hill and Gellért Bath, the Parliament building and the Castle District, including the Matthias Church, Fisherman's Bastion, and the former Royal Palace and more. With your dinner cruise tickets you get to enjoy these landmarks lit up under the night sky. 
Depending on your needs from a cruise, either would be fitting. If you’re looking to enjoy the Danube and Budapest’s offerings under the daylight or pair it with other successive experiences then lunch cruises in Budapest would be more fitting. If you’re looking to end your day with a romantic touch or a holistic dinner and performances, dinner cruise may be the perfect match for you. Additionally, dinner cruises allow you to experience Budapest lit up post-sunset, making it a sight to behold in its own way. If you’re looking to just holistically experience the city’s landmarks, sightseeing cruises in Budapest would be a better option. 
Depending on your choice of tickets you can enjoy anything from complimentary cocktails to an elaborated 6 course curated Hungarian meal. Most multi-course dinners on cruises include soups, entrees, main courses and dessert paired with unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Some of your options include regional specialties like Hungarian Goulash, Buchée bites, confit, filet, stews, tapioca pudding and much more. There are also several vegetarian options available amongst the Hungarian fare. 
Yes, depending on your choice of cruise you can enjoy a selection of alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages. All alcoholic beverages provided on board are served after age verification. Your multi-course dinner cruise options mostly come with an unlimited beverage package. Enjoy a fine selection of Hungarian wines and draught beers amongst other options. 
There’s much to do on a dinner cruise apart from the sips and bites. Enjoy elaborate live piano shows, piano battles, award-winning Hungarian folklore performances and even operetta dance shows based on your choice of dinner cruise tickets. Hop on board, there’s much of Budapest to experience on deck. 
Yes, there are several combo experiences that you can opt for should you wish to explore Budapest beyond your cruise experience. Visit the Hungarian Parliament Building and all its offerings with your Budapest Parliament Tour and Dinner Cruise and Live Music with Optional Hotel Pick-Up tickets or visit Széchenyi Spa before heading to your dinner cruise with your Skip the Line Ticket to Széchenyi Spa & Dinner Cruise with Live Music
Dinner cruises last for about 2.5 to 3 hours depending on your choice of tickets. 
Most stand-alone dinner cruises do not come with guides or audio guides. However, combo experiences provide guided tours or audio guides for the particular attraction included within the combo. Ensure you check your ticket information before proceeding with booking.
