Whilst in Budapest, this is well worth a visit to walk over between seeing Buda Castle and the Parliament building and 'Shoes on the Danube'.
This bridge was not really any more impressive than a lot of other bridges in river cities. I suppose coming from Sydney where we have a very impressive harbour bridge, I expect a lot! It was a nice way to walk across the river, and we did get some lovely photos but it's not the be all and end all... More
Central bridge connecting Pest and Buda. Go up funicular on Buda side for a great view. Also great views from Fishermans Bastion and from the Fort at otherside of the plateau.
’Széchenyi lánchíd’ (Chain Bridge), the oldest suspension bridge of continental Europe, is a must-see and a 'must-walk' attraction in Budapest. Even if you walked it over in the day and made some exquisite photos, make time to come back after it gets dark and stroll between the Chain Bridge and Elisabeth Bridge on Jane Haining rakpart when the bridge lights...

Amazing bridge. Easy to walk over on either side - the traffic runs through the centre part, but you are separated by stone pillars etc. Magnificent views of the various historical landmarks plus the Danube itself which is a very wide river so lots to see.
A stroll across one of the most famous bridges on the Danube cannot be forgotten! My wife's great grandmother made the same journey back in the 1890's for her catering business, so a trip across by the 4th generation to visit Budapest was something special. You MUSTT see it at night!!
There's little or anything I can add that hasn't been said so many times before, but sauntering across this bridge is just essential. It's up there with the Brooklyn Bridge, the Golden Gate, and Sydney Harbor Bridge (okay..I'm exaggerating a tad because Sydney really blew me away!). I ventured across the bridge at night and it's just so picturesque with... More
If you visit Budapest and don't cross this bridge, your visit is incomplete. Do it at night and experience the beauty of the city, listen to the Danube flowing by and imagine what it was like when all of the bridges in the city were destroyed during the war.
there's a lookout on the Buda side of the bridge where you can climb up and look over the incoming traffic ..great view :) the bridge itself is also beautiful especially at nighttime.
A nice walk across the Danube and the bridge itself is truly stunning. The walkway is very child friendly as there is no noticeable danger from the traffic...Stunning views too.
