Interesting bridge

A great bridge to walk over, remembering that it was the first bridge built over the Danube. An interesting structure.

One of some nice bridges crossing on the Danube river between Buda and Pest. View is great. A good way to cross to see both interesting places for turists in the city

I really enjoyed the chain bridge. My hotel had a perfect view of it at night and the lights were beautiful. In the daytime, it really highlighted the city.

Standing above the mouth of the tunnel which leads from Buda under the castle district and sets one up for one of the most picturesque views along the riverside, I had explaining to do. And it wasn't as to why Clark Adam, or Adam Clark, was the name given to the square /roundabout just before the bridge. In the presence... More

Title says everything. Spectacular viewing for photographs and the walk over to the other side to take photos of either Buda or Pest. Can get busy, especially people walking to catch the funicular - which personally I think expensive but would not like to walk up to the Castle and Fisherman's Bastion. There is a free lift to take you... More

The bridge is centrally placed in Budapest and a very historic construction. Worth a visit especially in the evening and during special occasions summertime when the bridge holds market and food fairs (no cars allowed on the bridge)

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
