It is a historical bridge and worth a leisurely walk . Plenty of opportunity for great photos of the scenic beauty.

Great way to cross the Danube. The views of the river are very lovely as you cross the bridge. Very nice walk across in the daytime. However, the bridge is lit at night--incredible

We arrived at Budapest early evening and drove across this bridge as the lights came on, it looks very impressive all lit up, a beautiful sight. It was bigger than I was expecting, crossing -as a pedestrian- was fine, some terrific views too.

The best time to see the bridge is after sun set when the lights are on.. The bridge looks very pretty and is a great sight when u see it from the riverside

This is a beautiful bridge which we saw both during the day and at night. We went over it and saw it from below on a boat. The city including the bridge, is very well lit at night which creates a fabulous environment which was enjoyed by many people of many varying ages.
