Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is an amazing city that has so much to offer. It is a lovely place that has always been the centre of art, education, research and commerce. It was occupied by the Romans soon after its construction in 1st century AD. It comes as no surprise that Budapest has been strongly influenced by Italian styles developed in the Renaissance.
You will get to see several beautiful bridges as you sail on the Danube, one of the major ones being the Chain Bridge. The Chain Bridge is a massive structure that has often been considered an engineering marvel by acclaimed architects and engineers. It is adorned with decorations that are made of cast iron. It is a symbol of advancement and bonding between the East and the West.
You will begin the cruise at Dock 11, where you will board a recently renovated boat. The cruise will take you on a route that lets you see the hidden sights of riverbanks that are not visible from anywhere else. There are numerous bridges that were constructed across the Danube. They were built in several rounds, so you will see a lot of unique and mesmerising architecture. Some of the large bridges you will see are the Chain Bridge and the Margaret Bridge. The sightseeing cruise will give you a chance to check out Margaret Island, where you can often see the locals going for a run on the island. As you sail further, you will reach an area of Budapest that can’t be visited on foot. You are likely to feel a great wave of joy as you cross the amazing Danube Promenade – Vigadó Square. This is amongst the finest cruises in Europe!
About The Cruise
Marvel at the wonderful sights of Budapest on the Danube as you enjoy this wonderful 75-minute cruise.This newly renovated boat will take you from Dock 11, which is where you can board any time of the day starting from 11:00 AM until 10:30 PM.
River banks will show you their hidden faces which are visible only from our sightseeing cruise. Bridges over the river Danube were built in many rounds so that you will be fascinated by the architecture of Chain Bridge and Margaret Bridge, which is a unique bridge over the river Danube. Sightseeing Cruise next to Margaret Island will give you an opportunity to see locals walking and jogging on the island. A smooth turn around the Island will take you to the part of the city that can hardly be reached by foot.
The sightseeing cruise will continue under two very famous bridges, one of which is the Chain Bridge with the guardian lions from the street sides, beautifully illuminated during the evening hours. Passing the Danube Promenade on Vigadó Square will free your mind and take you to the next modern bridge over the river Danube - Elisabeth Bridge.
The dominant white color of the bridge connects the city into one. Above the bridge on the Buda side of the river, you can see the statue of Szent Gellért after whom the hill was named. On top of the hill you will see the beautiful Hungarian woman, Citadella, standing proud with her arms open. Gellert Hill is a great place to take a walk if you are a fan of light trackings but nothing beats the sightseeing cruise on the river Danube.

It was actually romantic and it was summer when we went so the river wasn't even too cold.
It's a cheap cruise, tickets for the same cruise were higher at the dock. It's good we pre-booked.
I would highly recommend going on the cruise at sunset or at night. The city of Budapest lights up beautifully.
