This bridges is simply beautiful! And at night for me it has one of the most romantic views. To walk the bridge and stop to admire the view is simply a great experience.

Beautiful. Worth walking across. Beautiful ;) The best enjoyed early in the morning, before all the tourists wake up or by night. Make sure you bring your camera. Highly recommended!

I always find it delightful to walk across a bridge in a landmark city. The views from the bridge are lovely and the grandeur of Budapest is complemented from all the new angles.

One of the 5 beautiful bridges over the Danube. Very pretty at night when it is all lit up. The guides will share the funny story around its architect if you ask.

This Biridge is the badge of Budapest. Especially in the nights, it's so sensibility to watch this bridge under the lights of it. I was lucky because of my otel location which could watch it all over the night. All day you can watch a good scenery from the top of the Buda Castle with the Chain Bridge.

What can you say about such an iconic landmark that hasn't already been said. My only advice is see it at night!
